Detroit Arsenal, Mich. -- Detroit Arsenal teammates said goodbye to their chief counsel, Matthew Pausch, at an awards presentation held March 5 at the arsenal.

Tank-automotive and Armaments Commanding General Maj. Gen. Daniel Mitchell spoke highly of Pausch and praised him for his accomplishments.

"Matt, although I have only had the pleasure of working with you for less than a year," said Mitchell, "I have always found you to be very helpful, professional, and committed to providing the best possible support to our Soldiers and civilian workforce, and despite the exceptional work you have done, you have continued to remain extraordinarily humble."

Pausch led his team to many notable accomplishments during his time at TACOM.

"Legacy is an over-worked word these days," Mitchell said, "but when it comes to what Matt has achieved in his time here, this is one of those occasions when it is justified."

Pausch emphasized the importance of team work in all that he and his team had accomplished.

"The success we have in supporting our Soldiers every day comes from teamwork," said Pausch. "Your hard work, dedication and talent make it possible - together!"

As Pausch prepares to move on to his new assignment, he will be going back to Defense Logistics Agency where he served for more than 25 years prior to joining TACOM in 2014.
