U.S. Army North at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston will be looking for a new commander now that Lt. General William Caldwell IV is leaving to become president of the Georgia Military College.
Caldwell has submitted his retirement paperwork to the Department of Defense and has announced to friends that he will leave Texas to become the next president of the military college in Milledgeville, Georgia.
The existing Fort Sam Houston Museum was built in 1905 and takes visitors through the history of the Army in San Antonio from establishment of the post in 1845 to present day JBSA-Fort Sam Houston.
Much like other areas of the rapidly-growing military presence in San Antonio, the museum has outgrown its space, and the building was old and deemed not up to standards. The U.S. Army Center of Military History said to shut it down, but Army North invited the museum to relocate to the historic Quadrangle.
Rear Admiral Anatolio B. Cruz, who graduated from Antonian High School, returns to his native San Antonio as the first ever liaison between the local community and the Navy.
“In chatting with him, his primary purpose is to ensure that the community is aware of a significantly higher naval presence here, but also to assist if there are ever any issues between the community and the Navy here," said Brigadier General Robert Murdock, U.S. Air Force retired.
Some local members of the military got a treat at the Warrior and Family Support Center Wednesday when Budweiser brought in its famous Clydesdale horse team to visit with the soldiers and their families.
These horses meet millions of people each year, and a gentle disposition is a key characteristic.
The Navy celebrated a milestone Friday when its point of accountability for all Navy Medicine training relocated to Fort Sam Houston from its former headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla..
The relocation stems from the Navy Surgeon General’s vision of streamlining Navy Medicine into a more efficient and responsive organization.
Initially, 12 military and civilian personnel will be assigned to N-METC’s new location. The opening of the facility comes a year after the Navy’s ‘A’ School, the Hospital Corps School, relocated to Fort Sam as part of the 2005 BRAC order.
