BELLE CHASSE, La. (AP) - The largest unit in the U.S. Army Reserve will get a new leader Saturday.

The 11 a.m. ceremony in Belle Chasse will turn command of the 377th Theater Sustainment Command from Maj. Gen. Peter S. Lennon to Maj. Gen. Leslie J. Carroll.

The 377th comprises more than 36,000 soldiers in 33 states, covering six one-star commands and the Special Troops Battalion in Belle Chasse.

They account for almost 40 percent of the Army’s logistics and sustainment capability.

Maj. Gen. Glenn Lesniak, deputy commanding general of Army Reserve Command, will lead the ceremony at the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base.

Lennon took command of the 377th TSC in May 2012. He has been named the next deputy commanding general for operations at the Army Reserve in Fort Bragg. Carroll is coming from Fort Bragg, where he has been chief of staff of Army Forces Command for nearly two years.

The 377th TSC has been located in the New Orleans area since November 1948.
