Guajardo proclaims Corpus Christi Army Depot Day

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Corpus Christi Army Depot celebrates 60 years of service.

On April 21, 1961, the Army Aeronautical Depot Maintenance Center opened its doors.

Then it was renamed the Corpus Christi Army Depot in 1974.

The main job of the depot is to repair and maintain helicopters for all branches of the military and even for some foreign governments.

The Mayor of Corpus Christi also proclaimed April 21st as the birthday of the Corpus Christi Army Depot, and Congressman Michael Cloud put this on the official record.
