BG Lennon becomes new commander of 377th TSC Staff Sgt. Timothy Sander

Brig. Gen. Peter S. Lennon, commander of the 377th TSC, returns the salute of Brig. Gen. Kenneth Jones, deputy commanding general of the 377th TSC, during the 377th change of command ceremony May 19, 2012.

BELLE CHASSE, LA – Maj. Gen. Luis R. Visot, the former commander of the 377th Theater Sustainment Command, handed the 377th TSC over to Brig. Gen. Peter S. Lennon, his successor, in a change of command ceremony, May 19, at Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans.

Lt. Gen. Jack C. Stultz, Chief of the Army Reserve, presided over the ceremony and oversaw the passing of the unit guidon from Maj. Gen. Luis R. Visot, whose next assignment is the deputy commanding general of the Army Reserve.

“It was not a hard decision for me to say, ‘who do I need to be the next deputy commander to take responsibility for the forces in the Army Reserve?’ It’s Luis Visot,” said Stultz while speaking at the ceremony.

“You have taught me well … you have taught me patience dignity and respect … I will forever be indebted to you. I will miss you very dearly,” said Visot as he spoke to the soldiers and staff of his former command during the ceremony. “Keep in mind; I remain at your service.”

Stultz acknowledged the challenges the U.S. Army Reserve will face as it continues to fulfill its duties in a time of diminished resources, but said strong leaders will play a large role in the success of the Reserve during those times.

“Our soldiers deserve the best leadership we can give them. Our Families deserve the best leadership we can give them,” said Stultz. “Luis Visot and Cindy Visot are the best leadership we can give them.”

Lennon, who holds both Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in Civil Engineering, as well as a Masters Degree in Engineering Management, said he was honored to accept the position.

“I’m so honored to be here today as a transporter, a logistician and a sustainer,” said Lennon.

Lennon spoke about how well prepared the 377th is to mobilize and deploy into harms way to execute their mission and thanked Visot for the leadership he provided the unit that consists of over 38,000 military personnel, located in 34 states and four foreign countries.

During his speech, Lennon mentioned changes that would be coming in the future.

“We’re going to be facing changes in equipment, personnel, manpower (and) dollars,” said Lennon. “As we’re facing these changes, one thing can not change, and that’s our adherence to the Army values that brought us here and those Army values that make us strong.”

Before closing his speech, Lennon assured his new soldiers of his commitment.

“You have my pledge and my commitment to give it my all. To lead the soldiers and civilians through these challenging times and through these exciting times,” he said. “No matter what’s thrown at us, the 377th Theater Sustainment Command can do; anytime, anywhere!
