  Be aware of imposters

There are times that the names and images of 21st Theater Sustainment Command leadership have been used to fraudulently victimize or scam well-meaning people.

You will NEVER receive a personal friend request, or a request for money, from any of Team 21's leadership. If you are talking to someone claiming to be a current or past general officer or command sergeant major from the Team 21 leadership on any social media platform, you are talking to an impostor.

Our social media team reports impostor accounts for removal, but we need your assistance.
