Teyhen takes command of BAMC

By Robert Whetstone

The first active duty Medical Specialist Corps general officer in the Army, Brig. Gen Deydre Teyhen, took command of Brooke Army Medical Center today after an assumption of command ceremony in the Carolyn D. Putnam Auditorium. Teyhen was promoted to brigadier general July 8, 2022.

“I could not be more excited, I could not be more proud to take command of this stellar, world-renowned organization” said Teyhen. She reflected on the call she received to inform her which organization she would be commanding. “I almost fell out of my chair to be returning to San Antonio, to Military City U.S.A. They don’t give you a chance to do an OML (order of merit list), but if I would have done an OML, this (BAMC) would have been my first choice.”

In addition to commanding BAMC, Teyhen will serve as the deputy market director for the San Antonio Market, and the 20th Chief of the U.S. Army Medical Specialist Corps.
