SAN ANTONIO - More than 200 soldiers, civilians, family members, and local officials gathered for the U.S. Army Installation Management Command Atlantic Region uncasing ceremony at the Fort Sam Houston Theatre, Thursday.

Lt. Gen. Michael Ferriter, commanding general of U.S. Army Installation Management Command, officially welcomed Davis Tindoll Jr., the Atlantic Region Director and his Command Sgt. Maj. Kevin Sharkey, and personally uncased the colors.

“Today’s uncasing ceremony marks a milestone in the history of the Installation Management Command,” said Ferriter. “We have built IMCOM’s home, our home, within one location for regions in the continental United States.”

Ferriter explained in 2002 that IMCOM conducted business through seven regions. Now, with reorganization and increased efficiency four regions are carrying out IMCOM business operations and Atlantic is an important part.

An uncasing ceremony is a historic military tradition that signifies a unit’s arrival at a new location, in this instance, a permanent move to Ft. Sam Houston.

In his speech, Tindoll emphasized his commitment to become more efficient in business practices while continuing to provide world class support to the installations.

“We will keep in mind that with change comes opportunity,” said Tindoll. “Our goal is to seize this opportunity to ensure we improve our installations as premier centers of readiness and support.”

Tindoll said he is excited about Atlantic Region’s new home and pledged his support to be good neighbors and team players.

The Atlantic Region was formed in August 2011 when IMCOM’s Northeast and Southeast region merged. It provides all base operations, public works and family support programs ensuring the readiness of Soldiers, families, and military units. Additionally, it oversees installation management and support at 38 locations which included 22 garrisons, 12 deport guards, and four army support activities.
