Editorial Salute - 8/9/12

Posted: Updated:

Last week, in a special ceremony at Fort Stewart, Colonel Chris Hughes was promoted to Brigadier-General.  The ceremony was officiated by Third ID Commanding General, Major-General Robert "Abe" Abrams, with the star itself "pinned" on by wife, Marguerite Hughes.  General Hughes was joined on this very special occasion by several family members, included sons Patrick and Michael, both now Army officers, as well as by military service colleagues, past and present, along with many civilian friends through the years, going all the way back to high school. 

Following a distinguished Army career, including combat deployments and  assignments including Executive Officer to the Secretary of the Army, and Chief Army Liaison to the U.S. House of Representatives, Brigadier-General Hughes currently serves the Third ID as Deputy Commanding General for Maneuver. 

With Division elements scheduled for deployment to Afghanistan, we wish Major-General Abrams and his entire Headquarters Team all the best for a safe and successful tour down-range.
