MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. — Sgt. Maj. Bradley Kasal became the top enlisted leader of I Marine Expeditionary Force Wednesday, taking over from Sgt. Maj. Ronald Green, who will become the next
major of the Marine Corps. It marked a transfer of leadership between two of the service’s best-known enlisted Marines in some
of the most influential positions in the Corps.
Their posts puts the two men in prime positions to influence young enlisted Marines as well as senior officers, said Lt. Gen. David Berger, I MEF’s commanding general.
Congratulations to SGM Kasal.
What that? You don’t recall Navy Cross recipient Bradley Kasal?
There was a lot of hope that he would be selected as Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps. And that’s still a possibility, perhaps even a likelihood, after SGM Green’s tenure is complete.
At any event, SGM Kasal has had a career and a legacy that no man, nor any Marine, could gainsay.
