JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM — The 5th Battlefield Coordination Detachment held a change of responsibility ceremony at Aloha Aina Park, here, June 6.
The 5th BCD bid farewell to Command Sgt. Maj. Hai Dang, who will become the command sergeant major for the 3rd Battalion, 7th Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division.
The detachment welcomed Sgt. Maj. William Moore, a former 3rd BCT, 25th ID security force advisor, as its new operations sergeant major.
“Today is not about the honor owed to myself,” said Dang. “It’s about the recognition of the hard work and dedication of the unit’s officers, [NCOs], Soldiers and their families.”
Dang later stated that during his 29 years of military service he has always been blessed with great commanders. He said he was humbled to have served with the 5th BCD ohana.
Moore said that his effort as incoming operations sergeant major for the 5th BCD was encompassed in the third stanza of the Ranger Creed: “Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task, whatever it may be, 100 percent and then some.”
