After 31 years of active duty with United States Army, Sgt. Maj. Keith E. Green is retiring. Green was honored during a ceremony in January at Red River Army Depot where he has served as sergeant major since October 2018."What better way to end my career than coming back to the place that brought me back from a roadside bomb," Green said. "You all supported me in the past and I didn't even know the vehicle came from here. I need you to keep doing what you're doing to support the warfighters because they need you."Green re-established the role of sergeant major after three years of the position being vacant at the depot. The sergeant major serves as the chief enlisted assistant and advisor to the depot's commander. "I knew coming to Red River would be a transition for me but the team made it all easy," Green said. "Everyone here gave me their full support and dedication."During the ceremony, Green thanked each depot directorate as well as his family for their continued support through his Army career.Born in Panama City, Panama, Green began his active duty service as a generator repair mechanic. His over three decade career includes several deployments in support of Desert Storm/Desert Shield, Operation Enduring Freedom and Operations Iraqi Freedom/New Dawn. Before joining the Red River team, his last assignment was Poznan, Poland with the 1ST ID Mission Command Element (MCE) in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve as the G4 forward sergeant major."The depot is changing and you need to change with it, said Green during the ceremony. "You have proven in the past that you can overcome any obstacle that you set your mind to do, but you have to do it together. Yes, it may be difficult but I challenge you to let go of whatever has happened in the past and work together to get it done."
