FORT POLK, La. – Maj. Gen. Timothy P. McGuire, Installation Management Command deputy commanding general, paid a visit to the Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk March 23 to see first-hand renovations and new construction to housing and barracks, improvements in Quality of Life and the installation’s Facility Investment Plan.

During a driving tour of Corvias housing areas, McGuire, who was JRTC and Fort Polk commanding general from March 2015 to May 2016, was shown improvements and repairs made in the wake of hurricanes Laura and Delta in late summer 2020, as well as the ice storm that hammered the post in February.

During the trip, Col. Ryan K. Roseberry, commander, U.S. Army Garrison Fort Polk, and Command Sgt. Maj. Christopher Ausbun, garrison command sergeant major, escorted McGuire through renovated barracks that afford Soldiers more privacy.

They also pointed out to McGuire Quality of Life projects, such as swimming pool improvements and an indoor recreation facility for Families.

McGuire ended his visit by presenting IMCOM coins to six members of the Fort Polk Garrison IMCOM team: Chris Reed, DFMWR; Sean McCroary, DFMWR; Amanda Pete, DES; Laversa Wiltz, PAIO; Chuck Cannon, PAO; and Ron Semerena, Range Management Authority.

He then spoke to those gathered for the awards ceremony.

“It is great to see so many IMCOM professionals who are members of the Joint Readiness Training Center and Fort Polk team,” McGuire said.

“I will tell you this is coming back home for me. It is special to see first-hand the work the team is doing here, and what I’ve heard about since I left.”

McGuire urged the JRTC and Fort team to, “continue to stay after it, because there is no place that does more to build readiness and take care of Soldiers, Families, Department of the Army civilians and Soldiers for Life than JRTC and Fort Polk.”

McGuire said IMCOM Headquarters is doing its best to do the right things to make the JRTC and Fort Polk team’s jobs easier.

“You are at the tip of the spear,” he said. “If you’ve got a good idea, please let us know. Stay after it.”

Roseberry said that it was a great opportunity to show McGuire how far the installation has progressed since his time as JRTC and Fort Polk commanding general.

“Many of the quality of life initiatives were started on his watch,” Roseberry said. “Major General McGuire has been integral to the improvement in the IMCOM housing initiatives across the Army. It is a privilege to have him see our progress and plans for improved housing.”
