The Integrated Support Command (ISC) Portsmouth was disestablished in 2009 and was replaced with three new units that are still active at present; Base Support Unit (BSU); Personnel Services and Support Unit (PSSU); and Health, Safety, and WorkLife Field Office (HSWL FO) Portsmouth to continue providing services to ISC customers while addressing necessary growth needed for this facility.
