The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Task Force Recovery held a change of command on August 29, 2018, where Maj. Scotty Autin assumed command of the Task Force Commander from Lt. Col. John D. Cunningham.

“It has been an honor serving with all the dedicated professionals of the unified response and recovery efforts here in Puerto Rico,” said Lt. Col. Cunningham. “The Corps of Engineers remains committed completing our assigned recovery mission and to finishing strong for the people Puerto Rico.”

Lt. Col. Cunningham returns to his assignment as USACE Portland District Deputy Commander.

“It’s amazing to see the amount of work our team has accomplished so far. I am always impressed with their professionalism and drive,” said Maj. Autin.
