The 9th Mission Support Command is a U.S. Army Reserve Command under the operational control of U.S. Army Pacific Command and provides trained and ready forces to overseas contingency operations.The command has Soldiers throughout the Pacific to include Hawaii, Alaska, American Samoa, Japan,Korea, Guam and Saipan.


The 9th MSC plays a vital role in approximately 20 exercises under the U.S. Army Pacific Command Theater Security Cooperation Program,standing ready to provide humanitarian assistance, disaster relief and Defense Support of Civil Authorities.

The 9th MSC Headquarters and assigned units contain a U.S. Army Hospital and provide a ready force of engineers, military police, infantry, civil affairs, and public affairs, as well as the mariners who operate the Logistical Support Vessel SSGT Robert T. Kuroda.

The 9th MSC traces its lineage back to the Civil War when the original IX Corps was formed as part of the Army of the Potomac under the command of Maj. Gen. Ambrose Burnside. In 1961, IX Corps became a major subordinate command of U.S. Army Pacific.

Following inactivation of IX Corps in 1995, the command was renamed the 9th U.S. Army Reserve Command and moved to its current location.Over the past two decades, the command has reorganized and restructured multiple times to remain a relevant and ready Reserve force for the Pacific, adopting its current 9th Mission Support Command designation in 2008.
