Lieutenant General John J. Yeosock was honored with a memorial dedication at Patton Park on Friday. 

During the service, the Fort Hood community dedicated a park and plaque in Lieutenant General Yeosock's honor. 

Lieutenant General Yeosock served as chief of staff, assistant division commander and commanding general of the 1st Cavalry Division. 

"Dedicated, truthful. I mean, 'always tell the truth when nobody's looking,' is what he used to say," said Betta Yeosock, General Yeosock's wife. 

Lieutenant General Yeosock retired from active duty in 1992 after serving 33 years. 

Patton Park was named Lieutenant General Yeosock Park in his honor on Friday.
