    U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District

    FORT WORTH, Texas – Col. Calvin C. Hudson, II assumes command of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Fort Worth District, during a 1:30 p.m. assumption of command ceremony Aug. 14 at the Magnolia Ballroom, Sheraton Fort Worth Hotel.

    Hudson takes over the district from Lieutenant Colonel Clay A. Morgan, who assumed command on a temporary basis since March. Morgan will return to his role as the district’s deputy commander.

    A native of Atlanta, Hudson received his commission as an engineer officer upon graduation from Albany State University in 1994. He is a graduate of the United States Army War College, Command and General Staff College, Combined Arms Services Staff School, Ranger School, as well as the Engineer Officer Basic and Advanced Course.

    Upon assuming command of the district, Hudson will manage one of the Corps’ largest military construction programs, which encompasses all design and construction on Army and Air Force installations in Texas and parts of Louisiana and New Mexico. He will also supervise the operation and maintenance of the district’s 25 lakes, which furnish 35 percent of the state’s water supply and provide outdoor recreation opportunities for millions of visitors annually.

    The change of command, on which this assumption of command ceremony is modeled after, is a time-honored military tradition which formally reaffirms the authority of command. It is a transfer of the total responsibility, authority and accountability from one individual to another. The transfer is symbolized by the passing of the organizational flag, an icon which embodies the history of the unit or organization.
