Colonel Carl V. Glover


Colonel Carl V. Glover was born in Macon, Georgia. He earned a BS in Chemistry and Biology from Tuskegee Institute University and a MS in Logistics Management from the Florida Institute of Technology.


Colonel Glover spent 29 years in the U.S. Army with numerous assignments in key Chemical Corps positions including XVIIIth Airborne Corps Chemical Officer, Fort Bragg, North Carolina; and Director, Research, Development and Engineering Support at the Chemical Research, Development, and Engineering Center, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. He also served in other key, non-chemical Corps positions such as Chief of Staff, 59th Ordnance Brigade in Germany; Commander, Jefferson Proving Ground, Madison, Indiana; Commander Lone Star Ammunition Plant, Texarkana, Texas; and Deputy Commander, Test and Evaluation Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland.


Colonel Glover’s years of dedicated service were well described when, at his retirement, Brigadier General Jan A.
