CAMP HUMPHREYS, Republic of Korea -- U.S. Army Garrison Humphreys Commander Col. Michael Tremblay administered the oath of reenlistment to 1st Signal Brigade NCO Staff Sgt. Christopher Owens, at the 304th Expeditionary Signal Battalion Motor Pool, here, June 10.
Owens, native of Gadsden, Ala., reenlisted for additional six years from his current 10 years and 6 months of service. His goal is to become a warrant officer and complete a bachelor's degree in Information Technology. "Thank you all for being here," Owens said to his family and his fellow Soldiers in formation. "Without you, I would not be here."
Owens said that he asked for the Garrison Commander to do his reenlistment because "this was a special day and COL Tremblay has done a lot of great things during these past few months, especially during COVID-19 crisis. His recent speech at the Humphreys High School graduation really inspired me."
