  • U.S. Army North hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially open the new 
Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) facility on Ft. Sam Houston. The new facility 
will serve 499 Survivors of fallen servicemembers in South Central Texas, 
including 38 surrounding counties. SOS provides helps to facilitate programs 
and services to surviving Family Members (spouse, children, parents, persons 
in loco parentis, siblings) who have lost a Soldier by ensuring they have 
access to all entitled benefits, helping them foster resiliency, connecting 
them to multi-agencies and non-profit organizations, and keeping them 
connected with the Army.

Ms. Debbie Agnew, a Gold Star Mom, gave remarks. Following the ceremony, the 
U.S. Army Soldier Show performed in their honor. LTG Mike Ferriter, commanding 
general of the U.S. Army Installation Management Command, hosted the show and 
a reception for the Survivors afterward.

The Ft. Sam Houston SOS partners with the Blue Star Mothers of San Antonio 
Chapter 4 to co-host quarterly Gold Star Service Flag Ceremonies. SOS also 
holds outreach events like Family Fun Day, an event recognizing Gold Star 
Mothers and Families Day and other Installation events such as Fort Sam 
Houston National Cemetery Memorial Day Ceremony and Wreaths across America.

September. For nearly a century dating back to World War I, military families
