Statement by NORAD and USNORTHCOM Public Affairs concerning UC mission:
"Today, Health and Human Services informed us of their plan to suspend the use of temporary shelters on military bases to accommodate their unaccompanied children mission...
Fort Sillhas been identified to support a U.S. federal interagency effort being coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to respond to a recent unexpected influx of unaccompanied children from other countries. Following Joint Base San Antonio and Naval Base Ventura County, the installation becomes the third Department of Defense facility to support this mission.
When Maj. Gen. Mark McDonald passed the Fires Center of Excellence colors on and Maj. Gen. John Rossi took hold, the FCoE marked a new chapter in history by welcoming an air defense artillery Soldier as the new commanding general.
Today we said goodbye to Maj. General Mark McDonald and his wife Connie. Although they have only been here two years they have touched many lives. They have been a joy to get to know. It was hard to say goodbye but we are also looking forward to welcoming Maj. General Rossi and his wife Liz to the Fort Sill family.
