CONTINGENCY OPERATING BASE ADDER, Iraq — Hundreds of soldiers gathered at Memorial Hall to witness the end of the 632nd Heavy Maintenance Company (Outlaws) tour in Iraq.
In true Army tradition, the 632nd Heavy Maintenance Company, 749th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 4th Sustainment Brigade, 310th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, conducted a transfer-of-authority ceremony April 12 with the 1729th Field Support Maintenance Company, from Havre De Grace, Md.
The Outlaws, who will return to Fort Stewart, served as the lone heavy maintenance company in Iraq.
Capt. Jesus Pena, commander of the 632nd Heavy Maintenance Company and a Del Rio, Texas, native, shared his company’s accomplishments during his remarks at the ceremony.
He also went on to thank his soldiers and honor a fallen comrade the company lost late in the deployment.
Lt. Col. David Ceniti, commander of the 749th CSSB, spoke in praise of the Outlaws.
“Your accomplishments were extraordinary,” he said. “You should feel honored for your world-class efforts in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn.”
Ceniti also addressed his new maintenance counterparts, the 1729th FSMC.
“It’s up to you to write the next chapter in maintenance history,” Ceniti said.
