FORT HUACHUCA, Ariz. -- The 111th Military Intelligence Brigade bid farewell to Command Sgt. Maj. Wyndham K. Fox and welcomed Command Sgt. Maj. John D. Eldredge as its newest senior enlisted leader during a change of responsibility ceremony Oct. 2, 2020, at Brown Parade Field here.The 111th MI Bde. provides command and control for a monthly average of 3,100 cadre and students combined in the 304th, 305th and 309th MI Battalions at Fort Huachuca, and the 344th MI Bn. split between Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas, and Naval Air Station Pensacola, Florida.Col. Loren G. Traugutt, brigade commander and host of the ceremony, highlighted the compassion and dedication Fox brought to his position.“It doesn’t matter if you are a Soldier, civilian – inside, or outside of the installation,” said Traugutt. “Command Sergeant Major Fox treats everyone like family.“[He] is a Soldier we all look up to, a leader we all rely on, and somebody the young Soldiers strive to become.”Traugutt explained the Army’s doctrinal description of a command sergeant major is supposed to provide vision, motivation and inspiration; leading and inspiring change; dealing with uncertainty and ambiguity; and creating a positive environment to prepare for the future.“Wyndham Fox is everything the Army says a command sergeant major is supposed to be and so much more,” Traugutt said. “Army doctrine and regulations fall short in describing him.”This is Fox’s last assignment as he prepares to retire.“I started my career here at 17 [years old],” Fox said. “I get to end it here; I couldn’t ask for anything better. This has been a phenomenal assignment.”Fox thanked the Soldiers, the command, his family and those attending.“The people I’ve worked with and come in contact with – I’ve been blessed, absolutely blessed,” he said. “People in Sierra Vista have been phenomenal. They’ve been very supportive of the brigade. It’s not about me; it’s about all the Soldiers, the civilians, the staff and faculty, everybody from the CG all the way down to the privates. I’ve been thankful.Traugutt welcomed Eldredge and his family who are no strangers to Fort Huachuca returning for their third assignment here.Eldredge is a seasoned leader and a professional with twenty years of experience with the Army.“Command Sergeant Major Eldredge will fit in nicely with the Phoenix Brigade without skipping a beat,” Traugutt said. “He is committed to the mission and has the level of energy and focus that will keep this brigade moving.”“We absolutely love USAICoE and the greater-Sierra Vista family; and we’re excited to be back and part of the family and the team,” Eldredge said referring to himself and his family. “We look forward to the opportunity.”# # #Fort Huachuca is home to the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence, the U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command (NETCOM)/9th Army Signal Command and more than 48 supported tenants representing a diverse, multiservice population.
