From the Commanding General

By Maj. Gen. Mark T. McQueen | 11/21/2018

From the Editor: Maj. General Mark McQueen, in advance of his retirement from the Army, accepted the City Manager po sition in Panama City, Florida. Throwing himself into the job with his trademark compassion, dedication and enthusiasm, Maj. Gen McQueen had only been on the job a few weeks when Hurricane Michael slammed into the Florida Panhandle. Maj. Gen McQueen is all-consumed with the care of his city, and in so, missed his own retirement ceremony, dinner and change of command. Maj.

From the 95th Training Division (IET) Commander

By Brig. Gen. Andrew Bassford | 11/21/2018

This year marks the hundred-year anniversary of the establishment of the 95th Division. We are celebrating this milestone in a number of ways, but the most important of them was to come together with our World War II veterans – the original Iron Men of Metz – to take time and remember their achievements and the legacy that they have left for us.

One of the unique things about the 95th is that we have an incredibly active and valuable alumni association. The Association’s efforts to preserve our Division’s historical leg... Read More...
