Fort Campbell will be welcoming a top ranking official next week.
The local post will be conducting a change of responsibility for Command Sergeant Major Mark Herndon, who will relinquish responsibility as Command Sergeant Major of the Fort Campbell Garrison to Sergeant Major Stephen Bower.
Bower was previously the Command Sergeant Major with the 1st Battalion, 50th Infantry Regiment at Fort Benning, Georgia.
Herndon held that position since April 2009 and will serve as the rear detachment Command Sergeant Major for the 101st Airborne Division.
The ceremony is scheduled to take place in front of the Garrison Headquarters on Thursday, September 6th.
Officials say a Command Sergeant Major is a senior enlisted advisor to the commander and is responsible for carrying out the policies and standards of enlisted soldiers.
