It has been a great ride as Iron 7. I am proud to have helped lead the 1st Armored Division over the last two years. As I move on, I ask that you support CSM Day in the same fantastic way you have all supported me. Thank you to all our Soldiers, Families, and civilians - you are the finest I've had the pleasure to serve with in over 32 years! Iron Soldiers for Life!
