Late AMEDDC&S Public Affairs director honored

By Jose E. Rodriguez U.S. Army Medical Department Center & School Public Affairs

The late Phillip Reidinger was honored with a tree planting at the Warrior & Family Support Center located next to Brooke Army Medical Center at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston May 11.

Known as "Mr. Fort Sam Houston," Phil, as he liked to be called, was the longest-serving public affairs officer at the installation before his death in September 2016.

He was instrumental in efforts to counter encroachments at JBSA-Camp Bullis and was a tireless advocate for JBSA-Fort Sam Houston, Army Medicine and the WFSC.

Phil was also known as the "Voice of Fort Sam Houston" for the many ceremonies and events he narrated throughout the years.
