A new commander takes over at Fort Leonard Wood. General Randall Castro takes over the reins from outgoing commander General Robert Van Antwerp. Van Antwerp says the focus for the people at Fort Wood has changed from preparing the troops to go to their next assignement to preparing them to go to war. Incoming commander Castro echoes that sentiment. He knows the men and women he’ll train at the southern Missouri post could be headed off to war… and some might never return home. Castro says all he can do is prepare people to give them the confidence they need to get the job done.
