Families of the 7th Special Forces Group at Camp Bull Simons, Florida, will finally get their wish: a child development center located on the compound.

“Working closely with the Air Force, we now have plans to build a new CDC at Camp Bull Simons” in fiscal 2025, Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth announced during her speech at the annual meeting of the Association of the U.S. Army. She has been personally involved in the issue.

“It was wonderful to hear,” said Molly Tobin, family readiness group leader for 7th SFG’s 3rd Battalion, and one of the people at the forefront of the effort to get a CDC at Camp Bull Simons. Families have struggled with child care since 7th Special Forces Group was moved to Florida a decade ago under the 2005 Base Closure and Realignment action.
