FORT HOOD, Texas — The following is a statement from the U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hood commander on the Naming Commission’s recommendation to rename Fort Hood to Fort Cavazos after Gen. Richard Cavazos:

“It is important to remember that while the name of this post will change, the service and sacrifice by our Soldiers, Families, and Department of the Army Civilians will endure. This incredible legacy is what defines our installation,” Col. Chad R. Foster, U.S. Army Garrison Fort Hood commander.

Detailed information regarding each of the recommended installation names is available on the Naming Commission website at
