Spend an afternoon with Lt. Gen. Arthur Gregg

By DCMA Public Affairs

On behalf of Marine Corps Lt. Gen. Gregory Masiello, Defense Contract Management Agency director, you are cordially invited to spend an afternoon with retired Army Lt. Gen. Arthur Gregg.

This event will take place at DCMA’s Anthony “Tony” Acerra Conference Room on Wednesday, Feb. 21, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (EST). This is a hybrid event with both in-person and live-streaming options.

Online participants can use this link on the day of the event.

Gregg was the first Black officer promoted to general officer in the Army Quartermaster Corps and, upon his retirement in 1981, was the highest-ranking Black officer in the U.S. military. On April 27, 2023, Fort Lee was redesignated to Fort Gregg-Adams, now named after two African American officers: Gregg and Lt. Col. Charity Adams.

The name change was recommended by the Commission on the Naming of Items of the Department of Defense as part of the renaming of military assets that commemorate the Confederate States of America or those who voluntarily served with the Confederate States of America. The naming of Fort Gregg-Adams is notable as it is the first time since 1900 that a fort has been named after a service member who is still alive.
