CAMP RED CLOUD, Republic of Korea – Warriors of the 2nd Infantry Division said goodbye to their assistant division commander for maneuver during a “patch” ceremony conducted Sept. 1 at the Camp Red Cloud gym. Korean partners also participated in the ceremony to bid a fond farewell to a colleague.

Brig. Gen. Terry R. Ferrell performed both ADC roles, during his 15 months with the Warrior Division since June 2009, serving as ADC support and ADC maneuver.

Maj. Gen. Michael S. Tucker, the 2nd ID commanding general, praised Ferrell and noted his contributions to the community during the patch ceremony.

“Brig. Gen. Ferrell’s tireless efforts had not been limited to his assigned unit but also he maintained great relationships with our local community,” Tucker said. “This is a good example for many of us. Terry has taken time to understand culture around us and what it has to offer. Many of our Korean partners will miss him.”

The commander also thanked him for his support to the Division.

“Terry’s contribution to the Warrior Division improved the war-fighting capability of the 2nd Infantry Division as well as the quality of life of Soldiers and their Families,” said Tucker. “I thank him from the bottom of my heart for all he has done.”

After Tucker's remarks, Ferrell followed the 2nd ID commander to the podium.

“This division is a true war fighting division. It’s been a true privilege and honor to serve here,” Ferrell noted.

Ferrell then gave advice to the Soldiers present.

“Soldiers should be good neighbors. They have to remember that we are part of a community,” he said adding that being in Korea provides an opportunity to learn a different culture.

He also praised the Korean military, political and civic leaders he served alongside.

“It has been a true privilege and honor to serve Maj. Gen. Tucker, communities and Soldiers with this marvelous division,” said Ferrell.

Ferrell's replacement is expected to arrive early October.
