An infantryman who has served two tours in Iraq and four in Afghanistan received a new challenge Friday afternoon.
Command Sgt. Maj. James Brasher became the command sergeant major for the Installation Management Command Directorate-Sustainment. He succeeded Command Sgt. Maj. Jeffrey Adams in a change of responsibility ceremony in Bob Jones Auditorium.
“It’s always humbling to take on new responsibilities,” Brasher said. “And I appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve Soldiers, families and civilians that call our installations home.”
Davis Tindoll, director of IMCOM Sustainment, conducted the ceremony, which marked a milestone for the two senior enlisted Soldiers and their families. “Command Sgt. Maj. Brasher, you will be challenged. I promise you that,” Tindoll said.
Brasher, 41, from Albuquerque, New Mexico, has 22 years of service. He last served as the Fort Bliss, Texas, Garrison command sergeant major. He and his wife of almost 19 years, Skye, have two daughters, Madeleine, 7, and Allison, 4.
“I look forward to joining with you as we support the installations that so many Soldiers, families and civilians call home,” Brasher said.
Adams, a native of Dumas, Texas, plans to retire after more than 29 years of service. He was the IMCOM Sustainment command sergeant major the past two years.
“I’m honored and humbled to have served in this position,” Adams said.
Tindoll praised Adams for serving as his senior enlisted Soldier and battle buddy. “Thank you for taking care of me, keeping me straight and ensuring that I accomplish the mission,” he said.
Installation Management Command Directorate-Sustainment has 50 people in its command section.
