JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas –
An infectious disease physician assumed command of Brooke Army Medical Center during a ceremony held Aug. 2 in the Carolyn D. Putnam Auditorium.
Army Brig. Gen. Clinton Murray stepped into the role of commanding general after being promoted to his new rank on July 29.
“A promotion to the rank of general officer is rare,” said Army Maj. Gen. Telita Crosland, deputy surgeon general, during the promotion ceremony. “To be more specific, (he) was one of only three selects in an eligible population of over 1,000 colonels that places him in a .03 percent. I share this to underscore the trust and faith our Army has in this officer, this leader, to serve at the most strategic levels of our Army and our nation.”
Crosland said Murray is a quintessential professional with a servant heart.
