FORT DRUM, N.Y. – The 10th Mountain Division (LI) Sustainment Brigade (MDSB) bade farewell to one outgoing senior enlisted leader, Command Sgt. Maj. Roy Young, and welcomed Command Sgt. Maj. Todd Elsberry during a change of responsibility ceremony Feb. 5, 2021, at the Noncommissioned Officer Academy on Fort Drum, New York.
Young took responsibility as senior noncommissioned officer of the brigade in October, 2018.
“27 months ago I took on the most rewarding and challenging job of my career,” said Young. “I am overwhelmed with a sense of pride and humility to have been afforded the opportunity to serve as the Brigade Command Sergeant Major for such an outstanding and professional organization.”
Lt. Col. George Rollinson, the Home Station Mission Commander (HSMC) for the 10th MDSB, served as the reviewing officer for the ceremony.
“Command Sgt. Maj. Young, your main focus was always on the Soldiers,” said Rollinson. “You gave us leadership and mentorship that goes well beyond the uniform. We remain always capable and able to support any climb because of you.”
This marks Young’s last assignment in the U.S. Army, he will retire later this month after 28 years of active duty service.
“I would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all of the Soldiers and leaders of this brigade,” added Young. “The hard work, dedication, and sacrifices that you and your families put forth each and every day, make this one of the best organizations in the Army.”
As the new senior enlisted leader for the 10th MDSB, Elsberry took a moment to address the Soldiers under his charge.
“It feels great to be back at Fort Drum, to serve in what I consider to be the best Division in the U.S. Army,” said Elsberry. “I am absolutely committed to the Soldiers of this brigade and devoted to provide the best leadership and training to give them a winning attitude at everything they do. I am eager and excited to get on board, and look forward to winning with the Muleskinner team.”
