Family promotes Brig. Gen. Troy D. Kok to major general.
USAREC deputy commander for support pins second star

FORT KNOX, Ky. -- U.S. Army Recruiting Command's deputy commanding general for support received his second star Sept. 7 during a 10 a.m. ceremony here.

Brig. Gen. Troy D. Kok was promoted to major general and is slated to take command of the 99th Regional Support command at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

"Troy is one of the rare few who can dissect complex, wicked problems and build a coalition to solve them," said Lt. Gen. Kevin Mangum, the deputy commanding general and chief of staff of U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command. Mangum presided over the ceremony and performed the oath of enlistment with Kok. "We want leaders in the Army who can solve those problems."

During an emotional speech where he touted the support of his family, colleagues and God as they key to his success, Kok shared his simple mantra that he uses to keep the train moving forward at every command where he is assigned.

"Never, ever leave it worse than when you found it," said Kok. It's some of the most simple, yet profound, advice he got from one of his first leaders, he said.

Kok has held his position since May 2015.
