Colleagues, friends and family gathered in celebration for the promotion ceremony of COL Curtis W. King ’96 to Brigadier General at Fort Sill Oklahoma’s Training Support Facility Feb. 23, 2024.

BG Curtis W. King, 45th Chief and Commandant of the Air Defense Artillery School at the Fires Center of Excellence, began his journey to his new rank after graduating from the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York in 1996.

Since commissioning, King climbed the ranks and thrived in command, building his expertise on deployments to Afghanistan, Qatar, Kuwait, and United Arab Emirates. King strengthened his career in Germany and during his stint with the Joint Staff at the Pentagon.
