Gov. Hogan visiting Fort Meade for tour and proclamation

FORT MEADE — Gov. Larry Hogan is making a visit to Fort Meade.

A spokeswoman says Hogan’s visit on Friday afternoon to the sprawling Army installation will include a tour and a proclamation ceremony at the garrison headquarters.

The fort was established in 1917 and encompasses more than 5,000 acres between Baltimore and Washington. It is home to the U.S. Cyber Command, the National Security Agency and the Defense Information Systems Agency.

With more than 56,000 employees, Fort Meade says it is Maryland’s largest employer and has the thirdlargest workforce of any Army installation in the U.S.

It is named for Civil War Maj. Gen. George G. Meade.
