Sustainment Brigade change of responsibility ceremony set

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) – A new leader is taking responsibility of the 101st Airborne Division’s “Lifeliner” brigade at Fort Campbell this week.

Command Sgt. Maj. Ian Griffin will transfer responsibility of the Sustainment Brigade to Command Sgt. Maj. Michael J. Perry in a ceremony Friday morning at the post.

The post says Griffin took responsibility of the brigade in April 2014 and helped lead it on deployment to Liberia and Senegal as the soldiers helped in the effort to fight Ebola virus. He also helped lead the brigade during its first rotation at the Joint Readiness Training Center at Fort Polk, Louisiana.
