JOINT BASE LANGLEY-EUSTIS, Va. —

The 93rd Signal Brigade welcomed U.S. Army Col. Edward Borowiec as their incoming commander during a change of command ceremony at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia, Oct. 4, 2018.

 

During the ceremony, Col. Kevin Litwhiler, outgoing commander, relinquished command of the 93rd Sig. Bde. to Borowiec. Brig. Gen. Thomas Pugh, 7th Signal Command (Theater) commanding general, presided over the ceremony.

 

The 93rd Sig. Bde. was originally constituted on Nov. 3, 1941 as the 93rd Sig. Battalion. Later, the battalion served during World War II and also in Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

 

The 93rd Sig. Bde., provides mission command of network operations and defense of the LandWarNet in the United States to enhance and integrate warfighting functions.

 

 “Today, the 93rd Sig. Bde., stands ready to add another line to its already impressive lineage and it will do so with Col. Borowiec at the helm,” Pugh said. “He has the right experience to command the 93rd (and) Command Sgt. Maj. Greening and I have the confidence that he and Command Sgt. Maj. Benabise will continue the tradition of excellence the Soldiers and civilians of the 93rd deserve.”

 

Borowiec enlisted in the Army in Feb. 1986, but later attended the Officer Candidate Course and commissioned at a 2nd Lt in the infantry in 1993, then branched as a Signal Officer in 1996. Borowiec first served with the 93rd Sig. Bde. from Aug. 2006 to March 2007 before returning in 2018. Borowiec has served in several commanding positions throughout his Army career in the Signal Corps.

 

“I am honored and humbled to assume command of the Brigade,” said Borowiec. “It is great to see the lightening warriors leading the way again. The same linage and same objective to enable mission command.”

 

Litwhiler will continue his career at Fort Huachuca, Arizona.
