WASHINGTON (Nov. 3, 2014) — Secretary of the Army John McHugh and Army Chief of Staff Gen. Raymond Odierno announced today that Command Sgt. Maj. Daniel A. Dailey will become the 15th sergeant major of the Army January 30, 2015.
“We have the utmost confidence in Command Sgt. Maj. Dailey and look forward to having him join our leadership team,” said McHugh. “His experience, leadership, devotion to Soldiers and commitment to our Army make him especially suited to assume this important duty, one that Sgt. Maj. of the Army Chandler has masterfully performed for the last four years.”
Dailey is currently the command sergeant major for U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. Dailey, who hails from Palmerton, Penn., is a combat veteran with four deployments to Operation Iraqi Freedom and one in support of Operation Desert Storm. He was a command sergeant major for most of those tours, responsible for training, leading, mentoring and developing Soldiers into leaders. He will succeed Sergeant Major of the Army Raymond F. Chandler, III, who has served in that position since March 2011.
Huh. Guy looks a little like Esli.
