Col. Robert G. Morris III, garrison commander at Fort Meade, will serve an extra year in that post.
The Department of the Army Personnel Command has extended Colonel Morris' tour of duty until June 28, 1996, according to R. L. Lane, a Fort Meade spokesman.
Mr. Lane said Colonel Morris asked for the extension to give him more time to develop and implement programs.
The extension does not appear to be directly related to investigations into alleged wrongdoing at Fort Meade, he said.
