SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — Soldiers of the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, “Broncos,” 25th Infantry Division, held a change of responsibility ceremony on Weyand Field, here, March 1.

After 28 months as the Broncos’ senior enlisted adviser, Command Sgt. Maj. Timothy N. Johnson, relinquished responsibility to Command Sgt. Maj. Alan E. Michaud.

“I’ve been blessed to have Command Sgt. Maj. Johnson with me throughout my time in the brigade, and it is with a deep, deep gratitude that I send him on his way,” said Col. Scott W. Kelly, commander, 3rd BCT. “(He) has been an outstanding command sergeant major for the brigade and a key adviser for me personally.”

Kelly remarked on Johnson’s positive touch left on the Bronco Brigade prior to his departing for his new duty station in Germany.

“(His) service to the brigade made us individually and collectively so much better in so many ways,” Kelly said, challenging the Broncos to consider how little things matter, to lead by example and to invest in their people. “These three traits define Command Sgt. Maj. Johnson for me and harken to a significant impact he had on this brigade.”
