Breaking with tradition of having a Combat Arms CSM, USAREUR announces CSM Sheryl D. Lyon to arrive in May
With the myriad of dicussions concerning females capabilities to serve in this capacity or to make it throuhg that course, I wanted to share the news of the selection of the new USAREUR CSM, CSM Sheryl D. Lyon. I am happy to see this selection for a couple reasons, she is an exceptional leader with a proven career of distinction and it doesn't hurt that she is from the great state of KY.
So, with her selection to serve as the Senior Enlisted Leader in this strategic post does this help to level the playing field so that we select the absolute very best to serve in these demanding positions Invite others to respond by typing @name
I was stationed with 1AD in Wiesbaden from 2000 - 2007, during all of the OIF rotations, so it made sense to have Combat leaders in the highest positions from Corps down. I'm glad to see a well-deserved Sergeant Major gain the USAREUR CSM slot, regardless of gender.
