Message from the Commander

Greetings to all,

It is an honor to serve as the 61st commander of the U.S. Army Watervliet Arsenal, America's Cannon Factory.

For more than 207 years, Watervliet Arsenal has provided our nation's warfighters with the tools they need to fight and win America's wars. Today, the arsenal supplies our soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen with the very best cannon, howitzer and mortar systems in the world. Watervliet Arsenal is in the midst of a major modernization effort to streamline our processes and increase our capacity to meet increased demands for cutting-edge weapon systems.

Watervliet Arsenal will continue to build on excellence and forge the future!

Col. Earl B. Schonberg Jr.
