A U.S. Army signal company of about 100 soldiers is being transferred to Defense Depot Ogden from Pueblo, Colo., as part of a service realignment.
The company from the 1121st Army Signal Battalion will be attached to its sister battalion, the 1120th, at the depot by September, according to Bruce Edwards, chief of public affairs for the Army's 7th Signal Command at Ft. Ritchie, Md.The unit's battalion headquarters and one company now at the Pueblo Army Depot will be deactivated. The remaining company of about 100 soldiers and their families will be moved to the Ogden facility, Edwards said.
He said the company is being transferred to Ogden because of the depot's larger facility and training center. The unit is housed in restored buildings at Pueblo with limited capabilities, Edwards said.
Members of the unit frequently travel from Pueblo to Ogden for training and exercises, he said.
The battalion was formed in Pueblo in 1985 and was known as CONUS Communications Support Center-Pueblo until October 1988 when it was redesignated as the 1121st Army Signal Battalion.
