Brig. Gen. William E. Cole assumed command of the Natick Soldier Systems Center in a Dec. 5 ceremony at NSSC's Hunter Auditorium, according to a statement from the US Army.

Cole also serves as deputy commanding general of the U.S. Army Research, Development and Engineering Command, or RDECOM, at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md.

"I think it's fitting that the Army have an active-duty general officer stationed here in the state where the Army was born," Cole said. "As the only active-duty general officer stationed north of New York City and east of the Hudson River, I look forward to representing our Army here in Massachusetts, as well as in the surrounding New England states.

Recently, Cole was chief of staff in the Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Army (Acquisition, Logistics and Technology). He also worked with the Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center from 2009 to 2012, when he was Product Manager for Soldier Protection and Individual Equipment.
