New York Army National Guard Staff Sgt. Jose Ramirez, a Brooklyn resident, was among the members of the 369th Sustainment Brigade who met with the top enlisted soldiers for Army logistics in the Middle East on Dec. 29.

Command Sgt. Major Edward Bell, the Command Sergeant Major of the 1st Theater Sustainment Command, visited the 369th Sustainment Brigade’s headquarters at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, to meet with soldiers there.

As the senior enlisted soldier for this command, Bell is the chief advisor to Major General Paul Hurley on soldier training, readiness, and welfare issues.

Two-hundred-fifty soldiers of the New York Army National Guard’s 369th Sustainment Brigade have been serving in Kuwait since October, where they are responsible for logistics support for units throughout the region.

Based at the Fifth Avenue Armory in Harlem, the 369th Sustainment Brigade traces its history back to the 369th Infantry Regiment of World War I. The regiment, composed of African-American soldiers, became known as the Harlem Hell Fighters for their bravery in combat.
