The gold castles on his lapel

Updated: Jun 6, 2020

A tip of the hat to Senior Advisor Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Arthur Williams for a wonderful profile of his 30-year career in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that appeared recently in The Heron, a central Florida publication.

Here’s an excerpt:

“The last four years before retirement, Art was commanding general of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), a federal agency with approximately 37,000 civilians and soldiers, under army command, delivering engineering services in more than 90 countries.

“Would Art do it all over again? Yes! Yes to deployments, yes to building schools and hospitals in Middle Eastern and Third World countries. Yes, even with the multiple one-year periods of being away from his young family.”

The article also describes how Lt. Gen. Williams came to own a gold castle lapel pin once worn by Douglas MacArthur. To access a reprint, please click here.

Congratulations, Art. Thank you for your service to our country.
