The VII Corps Desert Storm Veterans Association is happy to announce that the 27th reunion weekend will be held at Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas, 23–25 February 2018. We will gather, as always, to commemorate our victory together as part of the Coalition, while also remembering and honoring those of our ranks who did not return.
Speaker: MG JT Thomson
We are honored to announce that the guest speaker for our dinner this year will be MG John C. (JT) Thomson. MG Thomson is the Commanding General of 1st Cavalry Division, which recently returned from a deployment to Afghanistan. As a Captain, he served as a member of the VII Corps during Operation Desert Shield/Storm; specifically as a Target Analyst assigned to 2nd Armored Cavalry Regiment. He will soon relinquish command of the 1st TEAM and assume duties as the Deputy Commanding General, III Corps. A native of Tyler, Texas and a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, we are proud to have MG Thomson address our JAYHAWK TEAM this year.
