JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON –
A new commanding officer took command of Navy Recruiting District San Antonio during a ceremony at the Army Community Center June 14, with Cmdr. Jason Webb relinquishing command to Cmdr. Corry Juedeman.
"I want to thank Commander Webb ... you have done a remarkable job in this command," said Capt. Susanne McNinch, commodore, Navy Recruiting Region West, Navy Recruiting Command. "You served with integrity and commitment to both men and women of this command and also to the community. I wish you fair winds and following seas."
As commanding officer since November 10, 2011, Webb was responsible for more than 200 recruiters, support personnel, and civilians who all assisted in making the Navy's recruitment annual mission.
Webb's area of responsibility included 46 Navy Recruiting Stations and Navy Officer Recruiting Stations spread throughout 140,000 square miles of Texas territory, spanning from Waco, west to Midland/Odessa, southwest towards El Paso, southeast along the Rio Grande Valley and west of College Station.
Under his charge, NRD San Antonio made its enlisted mission each month, continuing the streak of 77 consecutive months. It was also selected as the region's most improved recruiting district for 2012 and was awarded the Navy Recruiting Bronze "R" award for recruiting excellence for the first time.
Webb, a 30-year Sailor and resident of Kentucky, will next serve at Navy Personnel Command in Millington, Tenn.
Capt. Voresa Booker, former commodore of Navy Recruiting Region West, served as guest speaker.
"It was truly an honor to serve as your commodore," Booker said. "When I look at your accomplishments during my tenure, it was apparent that NRD San Antonio was a huge part of the region's accomplishments and Cmdr. Webb led the charge."
Juedeman, a naval aviator and native of Craig, Mont., previously served as executive officer of NRD San Antonio.
