That is interesting SFC Joe S. Davis Jr., MSM, DSL. I find it strange that with all of the potential senior NCOs who have served this nation with honor and courage, Retired U.S. Army GEN Gordon Sullivan was honored this week as the first honorary Sergeant Major of the Army. I realize that after he left active duty he has served service members and veterans as President of AUSA.
Kudos to GEN Gordon Sullivan and to AUSA.

A great honor for a great man. However, I wonder if we might have been better served in honoring one of the great CSMs or SGMs from our past who did not serve as the SMA, such as some of the great FORSCOM or TRADOC CSMs (just to name a quick example) who have truly led the way. GEN Sullivan was, and is, a great officer and leader. I, personally, would have preferred to see an NCO so honored. Perhaps the GEN could have been #2 or #3, even if his impact puts him potentially as #1. At the end of the day, he deserves the recognition. There is always the concern that, in recognizing our commissioned brothers and sisters for their accomplishments in serving the nation, and our enlisted force in general, there is also the potential that we are lessening the value we place on our NCO brothers and sisters?
