MG (Ret.) Thomas A. Wessels

MG (R) Thomas A. Wessels provided over 35 years of commissioned service in the U.S. Army Signal Corps. His career began as an Executive Officer in F Company, 3rd Battalion, Student Brigade, Fort Gordon, Georgia. He was also assigned as a Communications Officer, Instructor, Assistant G-2, Plans Officer, Inspector General, School Commandant, and has commanded at all levels concluding with his active duty command of the 335th Signal Command (Theater) in East Point, Georgia. During this last assignment, MG Wessels’ command was called upon to develop deployment communications packages to support USARCENT and the 3rd Army. Following the attacks on 11 September 2001, he immediately began to determine appropriate size, structure and equipment needed for rapid deployment of Signal forces. He closely supervised the development of policies, plans, and procedures that would be needed as the 335th Signal Command assumed the posture of senior Signal organization in Southwest Asia during Operation Enduring Freedom. He provided unique strategic guidance and operational foresight which played a vital role in the redesign of echelons-above-corps theater Signal structure. He worked tirelessly to ensure that Army Reserve Signal Soldiers received the most relevant training and equipment critical to the wartime mission. As a result, the Army Reserve Signal Corps is now more agile, mobile and better equipped and is a model for the entire Army to follow. For his significant accomplishments and contributions to the Signal Regiment, MG (R) Thomas A. Wessels was appointed as a Distinguished Member in 2009.
