Brigadier General R. Mark Brown next week formally takes command of the US Army Soldier Systems Center in Natick.
He's got ambitious goals, the Globe reports today, including strengthening ties with Boston-area businesses and accelerating technology transfer in and out of the base.
And there's another simple goal: keep the base open.
Brown says when they're looking to close more bases "I don't even want Natick to be in the discussion."
