On Camp Casey in Dongducheon Aug. 11, Area I holds a farewell dinner for Command Sgt. Maj. Michael L. Berry, senior enlisted leader for U.S. Army Garrison Area I, who moves to a new assignment after serving with the garrison since January 2016.

Berry will become Commandant of the U.S. Army Drill Sergeant Academy at Fort Jackson, S.C.

Berry was joined by his wife and son at the dinner, at the Warrior’s Catering and Conference Center.

A succession of speakers said Berry had been a caring and committed leader who had been tirelessly devoted to the well-being of Soldiers and civilians.

Col. Brandon D. Newton, Commander, USAG Area I, said Berry exemplified good leadership and was distinguished in part by his ability to think strategically.

In farewell remarks, Berry said his assignment in Area I had proven one of the most broadening and enjoyable of his career.
