Ammunition plants realign.

The Joint Munitions Command (JMC), a component of the Army Joint Munitions and Lethality Life Cycle Management Command, Army Materiel Command, is realigning the command structure of its installations effective 1 June. The new organization will align JMC installations according to mission rather than geographic location.

Under the plan, Radford Army Ammunition Plant (AAP) in Virginia and Holston AAP in Tennessee will report to Pine Bluff Arsenal in Arkansas. Both plants currently are managed by Blue Grass Army Depot in Kentucky.

Blue Grass Army Depot will assume responsibility for Scranton AAP in Pennsylvania and will continue to manage Anniston Defense Munitions Center in Alabama.

Milan AAP in Tennessee and Mississippi AAP, which is located at the Stennis Space Center in Mississippi, will report to Crane Army Ammunition Activity in Indiana. (The commander of Milan AAP also commands Mississippi AAR) Milan and Mississippi AAPs are now subordinate to Blue Grass Army Depot.

Lake City AAP in Missouri will operate under McAlester AAP in Oklahoma. McAlester AAP will continue to manage Red River Army Depot and Lone Star AAP in Texas and Kansas AAP, which are scheduled to close under the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure Commission's decisions.

Riverbank AAP in California and Hawthorne Army Depot in Nevada will continue report to Tooele Army Depot, Utah.
