USAREC welcomes CSM

During a change of responsibility ceremony today, U.S. Army Recruiting Command welcomed its 19th senior enlisted leader.

Command Sgt. Maj. Willie Clemmons, who relinquished responsibility to Command Sgt. Maj. Anthony Stoneburg, said this assignment has been one of the most rewarding during his 32-year Army career.

"There are two things I want to leave with this command," Clemmons said. "Always put the Army and this organization before your own personal goals, desires and needs, and always invest in yourself to ensure you reach your full potential. Also focus on the one mission this organization is tasked with - sustaining and maintaining an all-volunteer force."

Clemmons, who is retiring from the Army, has served as USAREC's senior enlisted leader since June 2014. During his time with the command, he developed Annex O to UR 350-1, the USAREC Command Sergeant Major Leader Development Program, formalized USAREC's command sergeant major/sergeant major semi-annual leader development training, enhanced synergy with FORSCOM's CSM office to ensure operational units receive briefings and information on command priorities and objectives, and oversaw the total re-write of DA pamphlet 600-25 ensuring the CMF 79 career development plan prepares and depicts accurate, board guidance.

"As the CG says, if we don't succeed at our mission, help is not coming," Clemmons said. "There's no other organization like ours that can assist us in accomplishing this."

Stoneburg comes to USAREC from the Recruiting and Retention School, where he served as the school's command sergeant major. He has served in various positions throughout the command for about 22 years.

While sitting in the Army Recruiter Course at Fort Benjamin Harrison in 1994, Stoneburg said he never dreamed he would be selected to serve as USAREC's command sergeant major one day.

"The first word that comes to my mind is wow," Stoneburg said. "I promise to do my best every day to represent the greatest collection of officers, non-commissioned officers and DA civilians the Army has to offer. We will work together to meet our mission requirements, and we will do it while taking care of our Soldiers."
