SAN ANTONIO, Texas (Jan. 17, 2012) -- Secretary of the Army John McHugh reaffirmed the Army's support to Soldiers and families during a visit to the headquarters of the U.S. Army Installation Management Command, Jan. 11. Although there will be many changes coming to the Army, said McHugh, "What won't change is our commitment to taking care of Soldiers and families."

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, also known as MWR, programs within its family and MWR Programs division. Additional responsibilities of the organization range from 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."

Our Mission: Our mission is to provide Soldiers, Civilians and their Families with a quality of life commensurate with the quality of their service. Our Vision: Army installations are the Department of Defense standard for infrastructure quality and are the provider of consistent, quality services that are a force multiplier in supported organizations' mission accomplishment, and materially enhance Soldier, Civilian and Family well-being and readiness.
