SAN ANTONIO – Responsibility for the U.S. Army Environmental Command changed hands during a ceremony at Fort Sam Houston on June 10.

Col. Alicia M. Masson ceremonially passed responsibility from Command Sgt. Maj. Louis De Leon, Jr. to Command Sgt. Maj. Tremayne A. Robbins with the transfer of the unit’s guidon.

The U.S. Army Environmental command has a storied history to include their efforts to ensure training lands remain available for Army use, help installation commander’s around the world reduce the environmental impact of Army operations and ensure installation staffs comply with the countless state and federal environmental laws and regulations since 1972.

“The U.S. Army Environmental Command takes a unique set of experts to function and manage the Army’s environmental program. It also takes unique leadership,” said Masson. “People are our most important asset.”

De Leon plans to retire in Florida with his wife and sons.

Robbins comes to USAEC from Hunter Army Airfield in Georgia where he served as the garrison Command Sergeant Major.

“Command Sergeant Major Robbins comes with an amazing resume,” said Masson. “He is known as a consummate professional throughout our corps, and we are very lucky to have him.”

Robbins is the sixth Command Sergeant Major to serve U.S. Army Environmental Command.
