Battery Commander: CPT Charles Brink
Battery First Sergeant: 1SG Jeffery Reed
Rear Detachment has a special position. It only exists when the battalion is deployed. The battalion's primary purpose is to ensure that new Soldiers into the unit get the training and support they need to be able to join the battalion down range. In addition, the commander and first sergeant act as a liaison to the spouses, signing off on things like pay inquiries, and handling issues that the Soldier normally would be able to take care of when home, but otherwise unable to when deployed.
