The relationship the MCBL has built with the CGSC and initiating the S&T Brownbag Lunch program is certainly a great use of the wealth of operational expertise on Fort Leavenworth.
In the most recent lunch event, the MCBL coordinated with the Program Manager Mission Command (PM MC) to introduce its concept for reducing the numbers of MC systems and providing MC capabilities to disadvantaged users--the personnel on a staff who are not fielded to an MC system.

The Form 10 filing outlines Capitol's plan to spin-off the outstanding common stock of MCBL through a pro rata distribution to Capitol's shareholders.
The completion and timing of the spin-off are dependent on a number of factors, including the Form 10 being declared effective by the SEC and Capitol's board of directors declaring a distribution of MCBL stock to Capitol's shareholders.
However, MCBL expects that a limited market will develop on or shortly before the record date for the spin-off, and MCBL expects that trading of MCBL's common stock will begin the first trading day after the spin-off.
