Davidson said he was humbled to receive this command opportunity. His previous assignment was Yongsan, Korea, where he served as executive officer for 65th Medical Brigade, Eighth U.S. Army.

“Household Six and I are blessed for being brought to such a fantastic team,” said Davidson, adding that the scenic view from Troop Command lawn “fails in comparison to the fine men and women who are standing in the formation today that make this fantastic view possible.”

Brig. Gen. Dennis Doyle, commander, Pacific Regional Medical Command, presided over the ceremony and thanked Holliday for accepting the additional responsibility while he had served as TAMC executive officer since May.

In return, Holliday thanked Doyle for the leadership opportunity.

“He (Doyle) re-established trust within our ranks through steady leadership,” said Holliday.
