The 344th Military Intelligence Battalion held an assumption of responsibility ceremony at the parade field, Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas, Oct. 11.

U.S. Army Lt. Col. John McAllister, 344th MI BN commander, congratulated Sgt. Maj. Sudan Baker, outgoing 344th MI BN command sergeant major, on his hard work and dedication.

“Over the two-year tenure Sgt. Maj. Baker has been an exceptional leader and mentor to everyone here,” said McAllister. “An excellent example for our junior-enlisted force to emulate as they step off on their careers. I am so proud to have served next to you.”

The 344th MI BN is the local battalion to Goodfellow Air Force Base, training the Army’s Soldiers to be Military Intelligence and Cyber professionals. The 344th MI BN is under the 111th Military Intelligence Brigade at Fort Huachuca, Ariz.

“This is where we train and prepare our trainees, cadre and ourselves to be champions,” said  Command Sgt. Maj. TaeSung Park, incoming 344th MI BN command sergeant major. “You have to train for your next job or position right now. This is a conduit, and we are making the next drill sergeants, first sergeants and command sergeant majors.”

The 344th MI BN and 111th MI BDE command team welcomed Park to Goodfellow as he accepted command at the assumption of responsibility ceremony.
