Staff report

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Maj. Gen. Arthur Bartell (left) , commanding general of U.S. Army Cadet Command, presented Col. Ronald Elrod, 4th Brigade commander, a plaque commemorating the expansion of the brigade mission and area of responsibility, at the annual training and production (TAP) briefing in Fayetteville, N.C., April 30.

The brigade controls 2,500 Cadets participating in 38 Army ROTC programs in South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, the District of Columbia, Maryland and Delaware. It also oversees  Junior ROTC Cadets at 315 high schools across its region. The brigade headquarters recently grew from 12 to 27 employees as a result of the realignment and will expand additional duties once Eastern Region de-activates. Fourth Brigade now reports directly to Cadet Command, currently at Fort Monroe, Va., and scheduled to relocate to Fort Knox, Ky. in summer 2011.
