Here at the Command Group, Soldiers are definitely doing what it takes to “move up in the ranks”.

Family, close friends and staff members recently joined in the celebrating the promotion of five Army Reserve Career Division Soldiers (ARCD).  Two, promoted to the rank Sgt. 1st Class, now, Sgts. 1st Class Chakeyma Allen and Russell Carter. Three promoted to Master Sgt., now, Master Sgts. Jeremy Kasten, Keather Mitchell, and Jacqueline Zent. 

The Soldiers chose family members or close colleagues to assist in the promotion, removing their old rank and replacing it with their rank.  After their penning, each Soldier expressed their gratitude to those who influenced their careers and assisted in their accomplishments.

After the Soldiers were pinned with their new rank, they raised their right hands as Command Sgt. Major Connie Commenia, ARCD, issued the Non-Commissioned Officers (NCO) Charge.  “Don’t just say it”, she began, “Know it, and live by it!”

To complete the ceremony the Soldiers proudly recited verses from the NCO’s Creed.
