SAN ANTONIO, Texas –
Members of Navy Talent Acquisition Group San Antonio attended the 2022 Command Reception at the San Antonio Botanical Garden’s Betty Kelso Center Aug. 24.
The event, hosted by the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce and presented by USAA, honors Joint Base San Antonio leaders and welcomes new members of leadership, while bidding farewell to those moving on to new chapters in their lives.
The event was attended by city leadership, including Ron Nirenberg, Mayor of San Antonio. Speakers for the night included Lt. Gen. Brian S. Robinson, commander, Air Education and Training Command; Maj. Gen. Robert F. Whittle, Jr., deputy commanding general, U.S. Army North; and Capt. Shannon J. Johnson, deputy commander, Naval Medical Forces Support Command.
Established in 1894, the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce has played an integral part in the city becoming what is now known as “Military City U.S.A.” The Chamber maintains a strong relationship with the military presence through a number of events and support efforts.
The organization’s commitment to maintaining its relationship was addressed via a statement on its website, “Now more than ever, continuing the networking with our military neighbors, ensures we remain engaged and active in their support, which in turn supports their growing military presence and brings awareness to the contributions of these missions to our national security. The Alamo Region is proud to be host to the largest diverse military population in the Department of Defense!”
