LTG (Ret.) Douglas D. Buchholz (2001)

LTG (Ret.) Douglas D. Buchholz consistently led with vision, decisiveness and a true passion for the Regiment over his 30-year Army career.

His career began in 1968 when he completed the Signal basic course and began serving in a variety of leadership positions. In 1971, he was assigned as commander of 510th Signal Company, serving in Vietnam. Soon after, he commanded 9th Signal Battalion, and in 1988 he took command of 3d Signal Brigade, where he was the first to field corps-level mobile subscriber equipment.

In 1994 he assumed command of the U.S. Army Signal Center and Fort Gordon, simultaneously serving as Chief of Signal. This tenure was especially noteworthy. It came during a time of uncertainty about the mission and role of the Signal Regiment and Fort Gordon, but his dedication and leadership brought direction and stability during changing times. He re-energized and greatly expanded the role of the Regiment and of Fort Gordon.

His last position on active duty was as director of the Command, Control, Communications and Computer Systems Directorate (J-6), where he served as a trusted adviser to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

LTG Buchholzís personal commitment to the Regimentís ideals served as a working example for all Signaleers, both military and civilian. He consistently set the standards that brought great honor to himself and the Signal Regiment. LTG Buchholz was inducted as a Distinguished Member of the Regiment in 2001.
