The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers 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, 2012.
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.”
