FORT HOOD, Texas -- The 13th Sustainment Command (Expeditionary) hosted a promotion ceremony in honor of Maj. Gen. Clark W. LeMasters, Jr., the commanding general of 13th SC(E), at the unit's Hildner Field July 11.

LeMasters was promoted from the rank of brigadier general as he prepares to move onto his next assignment at Redstone Arsenal, Ala., as the deputy chief of staff for logistics and operations for Army Materiel Command.

"The unit has done amazing things, it has shaped my thinking as an officer in the time that I've spent here, the unique challenges that I've had, the most important thing," said LeMasters. "Particularly, as I move onto my next job, it's refocused me, on something our boss has told us; the most important thing we can focus on as a Corps, that's combat readiness. The Soldiers, noncommissioned officers, warrant officers, who have taken us under their wings, who have trained us, we stand on their shoulders. The awards and the accolades we get are due to their hard sweat, their hard work."
