  • GLWACH welcomes new Command Sergeant Major

    May 11, 2015

    FORT LEONARD WOOD, Mo. -- Command Sgt. Maj. David S. Williams assumed responsibility as the new General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital Command Sergeant Major, replacing outgoing Hospital Command Sgt. Maj. Tony Williams, Friday. Command Sgt. Maj. David S. Williams comes to Fort Leonard Wood from the Southern Regional Medical Command at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, as outgoing Command Sgt. Maj. Tony Williams heads to Germany. Hospital Commander, Col. Peter Nielsen, welcomed the new Command Sergeant Major and assured him that this was going to be a great tour for him and his family. "This is an outstanding hospital--the best hospital in the AMEDD," Nielsen said. "Thank you very much for what I know you're going to do on behalf of our staff, our patients and our community." Command Sgt. Maj. Tony Williams spoke about his life's journey and what this assignment has meant to him. "First, I want to thank God because he has taken me from a little kid back in Alabama and New Orleans to the pinnacle and one of the best jobs I've had in the Army," said Command Sgt. Maj. Tony Williams. "One of the things I will miss about this special place are the relationships that I have gained over the last 22 months," Williams said. "I cherish the relationships and comraderies I've gained throughout the hospital and the community. They have become priceless to me and my family." During his time at GLWACH, Williams saw many new first-time services initiated here such as the first civilian/military Electronic Intensive Care Unit established in an MTF, and the first ever VA inpatient sharing agreement with the Harry S. Truman Memorial Veteran's Hospital to provide local veterans with healthcare closer to their homes. "What great lengths our staff goes through daily to take great care of our nation's sons, daughters, family members and retirees. What a great team of teams we have. I am humbled to have been a part of this impressive team," Williams said. Several exclusive GLWACH-only services initiated by staff members have advanced medical practices within both Army and civilian medicine alike such as the "Stemi hot load" cardiac patient transport procedure which ultimately saved the lives of five patients during the first few months since the procedure went live. "So, what makes GLWACH so great?" asked Williams. "It is truly about the people. I can unequivocally say that it is the Soldiers and civilians who roll up their sleeves every day and make magic happen." People will forget what you say and what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel, Williams said. "I look out over the crowd and I see faces. Faces that greeted me every morning with a bright smile and a warm hello as I walked throughout the facility, Fort Leonard Wood, and the civilian community on a daily basis. You in the audience are what makes this place so special to my family," Williams said. Incoming Command Sgt. Maj. David Williams remarked that it was both a privilege and an honor to be selected for his new position here. "As the Army and Army Medicine transforms, I will ensure that our beneficiaries and the local community receive the highest quality healthcare possible. That's my pledge to you, Fort Leonard Wood Community," said Command Sgt. Maj. David Williams. "I pledge to the Soldiers these things: their ultimate welfare, training, development and mentorship." "These are both fine, outstanding Sergeants Major," Nielsen said. "This is a bitter-sweet day." (Editor's note: John Brooks is the marketing and public affairs officer at General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital)
