Following a morning visiting with Wounded Warriors at Brooke Army
Medical Center, McHugh met with Installation Management Command, or
IMCOM, Commanding General Lt. Gen. Michael Ferriter and other top IMCOM
officials at Fort Sam Houston to discuss installation issues.
IMCOM oversees all facets of installation management including Soldier
and Family morale, welfare and recreation programs within its Family and
MWR Programs division.
Additional responsibilities of the organization range from the oversight
of construction to public works on installations around the world.
McHugh’s visit, which included tours of the IMCOM headquarters building
and nearby Installation Management Academy, ended with a recognition
ceremony for a number of IMCOM Soldiers and civilians.
“I want to tell all the folks at this great command, thank you for what
you do for our men and women in uniform (and) for their Families — not
just here but all across this great Army,” said McHugh.
“It’s because of you that we’re Army Strong.”
