By Jose E. Rodriguez U.S. Army Medical Center of Excellence Public Affairs

The 32nd Medical Brigade helped kick off Fiesta San Antonio by hosting the annual U.S. Army Medical Center of Excellence 2024 Fiesta Fun Run at the n MacArthur Parade Field at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.

King Antonio CI Scott Christy and Rey Feo LXXV John McFadden, along with other Fiesta royalty, joined more than 3,000 soldiers for the two-mile run in the early morning hours of April 17, 2014.

Afterwards the distinguished visitors joined MEDCoE senior leaders at Aabel Hall for a social gathering.

Fiesta San Antonio started in 1891 as a one-parade event to honor the memory of the heroes of the Alamo and the Battle of San Jacinto.

That historic commemoration still takes place, but for more than a century, Fiesta has grown into a celebration of San Antonio’s rich and diverse cultures and today is one of this nation’s premier festivals.

The 32nd Medical Brigade is the largest training brigade in the U.S. Army with a mission to prepare medical professionals to provide leadership and quality care in support of a war fighter, while cultivating the values that shape lifelong contributions to advancing Army Medicine around the globe.
