21st Signal Brigade Change of Command - Today, we paused to reflect upon the significant contributions of the past two years that COL Karen Roe, her Family and the 21st Signal Brigade team have "accomplished together" in what is truly an extraordinary command. While we celebrated COL Roe's leadership and achievements, we must also say goodbye to her and her Family. COL Roe, you can rest assured that you leave behind the conviction and the will for this great unit to carry on! You have done a tough job extremely well. You have excelled as your time as the commander of the 21st Signal Brigade. The brigade is better than before because of your selfless service. Good luck at your follow-on assignment; we know that you will have plenty of opportunities to excel! The 21st Signal Brigade remains in good hands as command responsibilities were passed to COL Paul Howard. A very warm welcome to you and your Family as you join the 21st Signal Brigade and the 7th Signal Command (Theater) team! The Army has chosen very well in selecting you to lead the Brigade...it's great to have you on the team. It is professionals, patriots and Familes like yours that make and keep us - Army Strong!

74 years ago today on 6 June 1944, 160,000+ Allied Soldiers stormed the beaches of Normandy, a heavily fortified stretch of French coastline to initiate D-Day. More than 9,000 Allied Soldiers were killed or wounded, but by the day's end, the Allies had begun liberating Europe.
