FORT HOOD, Texas – The 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) hosted a change of responsibility ceremony Jan. 10 at Hildner Field here to mark the change of senior enlisted leadership at the command.

During the ceremony, soldiers, families and community partners welcomed Command Sgt. Maj. Terry D. Burton as the newest member of the 13th SC(E) team and bid farewell to outgoing Command Sgt. Maj. Terry E. Parham Sr.

“I’ll look back and remember the passionate leadership within the command,” said Parham reflecting on his time with the 13th SC(E). “There’s no mission that cannot be accomplished when you have competent and passionate leadership like here. We have a strong foundation of soldiers and leaders; the unit is getting a great sergeant major alongside (Brig. Gen. Clark W. LeMasters Jr., the commanding general of 13th SC(E)). This unit is capable of great things going forward.”

Parham will depart to Fort Lee, Va., where he will assume the position as command sergeant major for the Combined Arms Support Command.

Burton joins the 13th SC(E) after a tour serving as the senior enlisted leader of the 404th Army Field Support Brigade at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash.

“As I assume responsibility today, here are the six Army leadership principles I promise to give this command, your families, the Fort Hood sustainment team, and the cities of Belton and Temple during my tenure.” These are: character, presence, intellect, leading, developing, and achieving, said Burton as he addressed the crowd during the ceremony.

Burton, originally from Roanoke, Va., joined the military Nov. 9, 1989, as a light wheeled vehicle mechanic and has held positions ranging from senior maintenance supervisor to first sergeant and from battle staff facilitator for United States Army Sergeants Major Academy to command sergeant major with 172nd Support Battalion and the 404th AFSB. Burton has previous overseas tours in Germany, Korea, Jordan, Iraq and Afghanistan.
