FORT LEE, Va. - Congratulations to Brig. Gen. John P. Sullivan - Maj. Gen. Larry D. Wyche, Combined Arms Support Command and Fort Lee commanding general, left, and Jennifer Sullivan pin the rank of brigadier general on him during his April 25 promotion ceremony. Sullivan is the Chief of Transportation and Transportation School commandant.
While sharing several stories of serving with Sullivan, Wyche added, "let there be no doubt in your mind that we are promoting the best of the best today. When you deal with John Sullivan, you are dealing with an individual who lives and breathes the Army values and warrior ethos."
Sullivan has been stationed at Fort Lee since June 2013 and is responsible for overseeing the training of more than 17,000 transportation students annually.
