Fort Bliss, TX (KTSM) — From Maj. Gen. Dana Pittard's weekly commentary, "Thoughts while working out in the gym:"
This week Team Bliss is having farewell dinners for both of the 1st Armored Division’s Deputy Commanding Generals. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank two of the finest officers I have ever had the chance to work with, Brigadier General Wayne Grigsby and Colonel (Promotable) Al Shoffner.
Without their expert leadership and world-class abilities, none of the successes we have enjoyed over their tenure would have been possible. I wish them Godspeed and the best of luck for both of them in all of their future endeavors.
BG Grigsby will be heading to work at the Pentagon as the Director of Army Training (DOT) and COL Shoffner will be leaving Fort Bliss and heading to Fort Eustis, VA to be the TRADOC G3/5/7.
