    SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- The U.S. Army Installation Management Command and Army Environmental Command employees traded in business casual clothes for gardening gloves and jeans and got to work polishing their newest "installation," John James Park in San Antonio, Texas.

    Volunteers from the two commands and the city of San Antonio gathered at the sprawling green haven to celebrate Earth Day and IMCOM's official adoption of the 90-acre park, marked by a tree dedication. Distinguished guests included the Hon. Katherine Hammack, assistant secretary of the Army for installations, energy and environment; Lt. Gen. Rick Lynch, commanding general of IMCOM; Col. Scott Kimmel, commander of USAEC; Ray Lopez, San Antonio councilman and mayor pro-tem; and representatives from the San Antonio parks and recreation department.

    The park includes a playground, picnic area, softball and soccer fields, fitness equipment and a half mile of hard and soft trails.

    IMCOM's Keith Smith brings us the story.
