SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — The Tropic Lightning Division said farewell to Command Sgt. Maj. Benjamin Jones, senior enlisted adviser for the 25th Infantry Division and U.S. Army-Hawaii, as he relinquished responsibility during a ceremony held on Weyand Field, here, Monday.

“Standing before you today on this historic field in formation are the most disciplined, well trained and highly motivated Soldiers this Army has to offer. They are known as the Tropic Lightning Soldiers, and they look amazing out there. I am truly humbled and honored to have been a part of this extraordinary division as your division command sergeant major,” said Jones.

Jones will become the new senior enlisted adviser for the 18th Airborne Corps, Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

The ceremony was hosted by the commanding general of the 25th Inf. Div., Maj. Gen. Charles Flynn.

“Command Sgt. Maj. Jones, you have been with me every early morning, every late night, every training visit and every deployment. You were constantly on the move with me and always matching and pushing our energy levels higher, motivating and inspiring myself and every Soldier in this organization with your leadership,” said Flynn. “Words will never adequately express my full gratitude, and you will be surely missed and forever known as ‘Lightning’ Jones.”

The ceremony was held to tradition as the outgoing senior adviser passed the division guidon to Flynn one last time. He then stepped out of place to allow Command Sgt. Maj. Scott A. Brzak to take his place and accept the guidon.

Brzak arrives from the 1st Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division.

“Welcome to our Tropic Lightning ohana and team,” said Flynn. “I am fully confident in Command Sgt. Brzak. He is uniquely suited to service this division and its amazing Soldiers. He is the perfect fit to assume the helm of this legendary unit.”
