FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas - Brig. Gen Michael Swezey, assistant adjutant general, New York Army National Guard, emphasizes a lesson he learned as the dual status commander for New York in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy. Military leaders from a score of states traveled to U.S. Army North headquarters Feb. 12-13 for the Dual Status Commanders Orientation Course. The event served as a forum to discuss and learn about the methods, capabilities and services federal ground forces can provide a commander.
