Kasal replaces Green as I MEF's top enlisted leader

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.

  1. Both damned fine men. I served with Green on the drill field in the early 90s. And Kasal was revered by his Marines as a First Sergeant.

    I will forgive the “SGM” abbreviation, Brad, knowing you are a doggie. The USMC abbreviates “SgtMaj”.

    Kasal will be SgtMaj of the Corps, I think. And a damned fine one.

  2. My experience is through Dad and the flyboy side of things, but any organization would and should be proud to have SgtMaj Kasal at its head
