The 359th is an Army Reserve brigade that falls under the command of the 335th Signal Command (Theater) in East Point, Ga. While headquartered in Fort Gordon, Ga., the 359th has over 1400 Soldiers in seven states (Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Virginia).
The brigade mainly consists of Soldiers in the signal field, like satellite operators and network engineers. The signal Soldiers’ mission is to deploy worldwide to install, manage, monitor and defend theater-level communications systems and networks for joint and combined operations. But, like most organizations, there are a number of operational support positions as well. Soldiers specializing in administration, security and supply provide the signal Soldiers with the tools to succeed.
The brigade’s motto of ‘Command and Communicate’ fittingly extends onto the separate units serving under the brigade since their missions are to get information out.
The 300th Mobile Public Affairs Detachment serves to tell Soldiers’ stories via print and video publications.
The 317th and 45th Military History Detachments document Army units, personnel, events and missions through interviews, photographs and stories.
The 982nd Combat Camera (Airborne) Company documents Army events and missions across the globe via photography, both still and video.
So, whether the Soldiers from the 359th are setting up a satellite, photographing an event or ordering equipment, it all supports the mission of providing communications to the commanders on the battlefield.
