LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles District welcomed Lt. Gen. Thomas Bostick, currently the U.S. Army Deputy Chief of Staff, G-1, during his visit here May 18.

Bostick was recently confirmed at the rank of lieutenant general and to be the 53rd Commanding General, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Chief Engineer of the U.S. Army.

Bostick was in the area to attend the City of Torrance's 53rd Annual Armed Forces Day Celebration and to administer the Oath of Enlistment to area future soldiers in a public enlistment ceremony.

Col. Mark Toy, Los Angeles District commander, and his staff took Bostick on a ground and aerial tour of some of the District's projects.

“I’m very happy that General Bostick saw the opportunity to visit his first District, as he was here in his capacity as the current G-1,” said Toy.

The District tour highlighted the Los Angeles River Ecosystem Restoration Study area, the lower Los Angeles River, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and culminated with a walking tour of the Armed Forces Reserve Center construction site at the Joint Forces Training Base, Los Alamitos.

“I was really impressed with the leadership Colonel Mark Toy provides and all the camaraderie in the people,” said Bostick. “You can really see that it’s a team.”

“Everything in the Army is based on the leadership and the team that they lead,” Bostick further said. “Obviously, you have great leaders here; you have a great team and they are doing fabulous work.”

Bostick is scheduled to take command of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers May 22.
