335th Theater Signal Command
The 335th Theater Signal Command (TSC) is a Direct Reporting Command (DRC) of the United States Army Reserve Command (USARC). A two star command, it manages the telecommunications infrastructure for Southwest Asia (Arabian Peninsula and Iraq, the Northern Red Sea, Horn of Africa, South and Central Asia) in support of USARCENT / Third Army and CENTCOM during peacetime and contingency operations.
The 335th Theater Signal Command is a premier executor of the CINC's information network. The 335th leads the way in integrating all aspects of information management, applying leading edge technologies to maintain a technological advantage over any adversary. A key player in defending United States interests in Southwest Asia, the Command employs all personnel resources - Active, Active-Guard / Reserve and Reserve - to meet the challenge placed before us. The 335th has developed and implemented a robust telecommunications infrastructure to efficiently and accurately move information, data and communications for the warfighting commander. The command meets the communications challenge in Joint exercises, routine operational missions in the AOR and in the Continental United States, proving daily to the warfighting commanders that the 335th has the necessary communications infrastructure to provide command and control of their forces.
The 335th Signal Command evolved into it's present status over a period of over 40 years. In February 1953, the 335th was organized in Atlanta, GA as a United States Army Reserve Signal Group comprised of 69 soldiers under the Command of a Colonel. A change in the Army's structure upgraded the 335th to a Brigade in October 1984. Concurrently, the unit adopted their own Shoulder Patch and Distinctive Unit Insignia. A year and a half after obtaining Brigade status, the 335th became a Theater Communications Command. Restructuring initiatives in the Reserve Component have elevated the 335th to a Major United States Army Reserve Command.
The Command Vision is to be a cohesive force providing the most effective information management and communications support for United States Central Command (USCENTCOM) Area of Responsibility (AOR). The CENTCOM AOR is comprised of 25 nations ranging from Egypt in the West to Pakistan in the East, from Kazakhstan in the North to Kenya and the Horn of Africa in the South. The AOR includes the waters of the Red Sea, Arabian Gulf, and the western portion of the Indian Ocean. It is capable of meeting any challenge as it execute internal operational, strategic and tactical responsibilities while satisfying all customers' requirements. To meet these challenges, the command will focus on teamwork, recruiting and retaining capable, quality soldiers and the execution of operational missions effectively and efficiently. This vision requires continuous improvement of processes, actions, training and ethical conduct in the execution of all aspects of responsibilities, while simultaneously taking care of soldiers and their families.
