FORT LEE, Va. - The U.S. Army Ordnance School welcomed Command Sgt. Maj. Clinton G. Hall as the 11th regimental command sergeant major during an assumption of responsiblity ceremony Nov. 16.

"I knew from the very first day I met Clint, he was destined to do great things for our Army and our Soldiers," said Col. Edward M. Daly, chief of Ordnance. "Command Sgt. Maj. Hall is an outstanding leader, a standard bearer, tactically and technically proficient and second to none."

The Murray, Ky., native comes to the Ordnance School from TACOM Life Cycle Management Command, Warren, Mich., where he served as the command sergeant major .

"I told my father years ago that it sure would be neat if I were to become the regimental command sergeant major for the Ordnance Corps. But I doubted it would ever happen," Hall said. "He reminded me of that conversation recently, so it seems surprises never end."

Hall is a graduate of the Primary Leadership Development Course, Basic and Advanced Noncommissioned Officers Course, Battle Staff Course and the U.S. Army Sergeant Majors Academy. He also attended the Basic and Advanced Airborne School and Air Assault School.
