Summary
U.S. Army General (Ret.) Leo Brooks was born on August 9, 1932, and raised in Alexandria, Virginia, where his family has had a long military tradition. Brooks received his B.S. degree from Virginia State University and his M.S. degree from George Washington University. He was first commissioned in the U.S. Army as a second lieutenant and served two tours in the Vietnam War. His key senior-level assignments included four commands over a ten year period: commander, Sacramento Army Depot; commander, 13th Corps Support Command, Fort Hood, Texas; commanding general, U.S. Army Troop Support Agency; and commanding general of the Defense Personnel Support Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Brooks retired as a Major General in 1984. His two sons, Leo, Jr. and Vincent, have been promoted to U.S. Army generals, making the Brooks family the only African American family in U.S. history to have three members achieve the rank of general.
