Curry joins the command after a two-year assignment in Seoul, South Korea, as senior enlisted adviser of the 1st Signal Brigade.

“I totally commit myself to you and your families,” said Curry, addressing members of the 311th in attendance. “I want to thank Maj. Gen. Lawrence Brock for the opportunity to serve as the command sergeant major of this professional organization. I look forward to strengthening the theater voice and the partnership with our allies as we continue to support the multitude of theater missions, here, in the Pacific.”

“Your reputation is one of absolute excellence built on demonstrated superb leadership, broad operational experience and exceptional technical expertise,” said Brock, commander, 311th SC (T) and host of the ceremony.

Braswell, who will become the senior enlisted adviser for the 516th Sig. Brigade (headquartered on Fort Shafter), offered his own parting comments.

“This unit is no stranger to change, and because of its ability to keep moving forward, it continues to enjoy the greatness of success,” he said, thanking the 311th’s leadership for allowing him to perform his duties without any reservations.
