JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas —

Lt. Gen. Laura J. Richardson, U.S. Army North Commanding General, welcomed Maj. Gen. David P. Glaser, the new U.S. Army North Deputy Commanding General-Operations, during a ceremony at the Quadrangle at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston July 23.

“Today is a great day for U.S. Army North as we welcome Maj. Gen. David Glaser to JBSA-Fort Sam Houston and the ARNORTH command team as our deputy commanding general,” Richardson said.

Glaser most recently served as the Provost Marshal General of the U.S. Army in Washington, D.C., concurrently serving as the commanding general, U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in 1985 through the Reserve Officer Training Corps at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Ohio. His career spans more than three decades and includes key command and staff positions, as well as three deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.

“When I was asked if I’d consider serving as the DCG for Army North, I’ll be honest, my heart leapt knowing the mission, the opportunity to work with state and Federal agencies as well as partnering with our neighbors in Canada, Mexico and the Bahamas,” Glaser said.

Glaser thanked the group and the local community for an incredible welcome. He said he and his family look forward to being an active part of the San Antonio community and the mission success of Army North.
