Welcome to the ASC History Office

History is being made every day at this command.

The ASC History Office exists to preserve the history of the command and its installations. The office collects documents pertaining to almost every facet of the command including its ammunition plant and depot assets, forward commands, Army Prepositioned Stocks, Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP), staff, and directorate offices.


In addition to Army Sustainment Command and the installation served by the command, the ASC History Office fulfills the role of the Rock Island Arsenal's historical section. This involves providing support for public events in the form of lectures, tours, and displays. The ASC History Office functions to tell the Army story, build espirit de corps, tell the history of supporting our Nation, our Army, and our Communities.
