FORT HOOD, Texas – Fort Hood officials will host a memorial and dedication ceremony at 9 a.m. May 16 for the Gen. Richard Cavazos Mission Training Complex, Bldg. 2244, here.

The contractor, MW Builders, from Temple, Texas, estimates the facility will open in later part of summer 2020.

Media who wish to cover the dedication ceremony should register here. On May 16, media covering the event should meet public affairs representatives at the Marvin Leath Visitors’ Center in the south-side parking lot at 8:15 a.m.
