Embracing the motto, “Ready Lightning," The 335th Signal Command (Theater) is one of the Army’s four vital theater signal commands.

The 335th Signal Command (Theater) has Army Reserve Signal Soldiers assigned to units throughout United States and overseas supporting ongoing military operations.

In 2016, the 335th Signal Command (Theater) became the Army Reserve proponent for Defensive Cyber Operations/Forces for the Army Reserve as the Army Reserve Cyber Operations Group (ARCOG) transitioned from the 76th Operational Readiness Command (ORC) to the 335th Signal Command (Theater). This transition brings Army Reserve Cyber Protection Teams to the 335th Signal Command (Theater).
