FORT KNOX, Ky. – John Troxell, a former Fort Knox command sergeant major and senior enlisted advisor to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, visited the installation April 19.
Troxell was in the area for another engagement and asked to receive an installation update. While on post, Troxell saw the 905th Military Working Dogs team, the Retention and Recruiting College, barracks and Knox Hills housing.
He said he was amazed at the positive changes he saw across the installation since he last served at the post in 2011.
“I think it’s come a long way in terms of quality of life for Soldiers and Families and the community,” said Troxell. “Fort Knox has put a vested effort in modernizing buildings and giving better living quarters to troops. It’s so satisfying to see where it’s at.”
Troxell completed basic training at Fort Knox in 1982 and remained on active duty in the Army for more than 30 years before becoming the principal military advisor on all matters related to troops of the U.S. Armed Forces to the Chairman and Secretary of Defense.
