A former commanding general of Fort Leonard Wood, Retired Major General Randall Castro, was awarded on Monday the U S. Army Corps of Engineers’ highest honor, the Gold de Fleury Medal, in recognition of his lifetime achievements and significant contributions to Army engineering. Castro is now president of Black and Veatch’s federal business. Prior to joining the firm in 2018, Castro spent decades in government service, infrastructure development, and project management. He served as Fort Leonard Wood’s commanding general from July 2004 to August 2006. Castro and his wife Judy successfully championed several issues on behalf of military-dependent children and families while they were at Fort Leonard Wood. This effort resulted in Missouri signing the Military Interstate Children’s Compact with several other states in this region of the United States.
