Smith Assigned Commandant of NCO Academy

A very special ceremony took place this morning at Hunter Army Airfield. Sgt. Maj. Mittie Smith has been the top noncommissioned officer since 2002. She has worked side by side with top leaders at Hunter as our nation went to war and she's made a name for herself in the community with her many public speaking events.

Sgt. Maj. Smith's next assignment is commandant of the Noncommissioned Officers Academy at Fort Stewart. "Being a command sergeant ajor is an awesome, demanding responsibility," she said. "I say bittersweet because I'm really not leaving Hunter or Savannah, just moving to the NCO Academy. But it's sad leaving because these people are like my family."

Sgt. Maj.  Smith says she is excited to help serve as a role model for all of the junior officers who will be going through the academy.
