USAMRDC, Fort Detrick to Welcome Brunell as Command Sergeant Major
Fort Detrick, Maryland – The U.S. Army Medical Research and Development Command and Fort Detrick will formally welcome Kyle S. Brunell as the new Command Sergeant Major during an Assumption of Responsibility ceremony on Friday, September 23 at Fort Detrick, Maryland.
Brunell, who has a distinguished service record of more than 30 years, comes to the installation after most recently serving as the Command Sgt. Maj. at Regional Health Command – Europe, in Sembach, Germany. "Fort Detrick is a special installation," said Brunell. "I can't wait to join this hardworking team of Service Members, civilians and contractors who contribute to our critically important mission."
While serving at Regional Health Command – Europe, Brunell played an integral role in efforts to vaccinate thousands of U.S. Service Members during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. His medical service career includes stops at West Point, New York; Fort Hood, Texas and Fort Lee, Virginia, among others.
"Kyle is a proven leader and a natural problem solver, not to mention a tireless advocate for Service Members everywhere," said Brig. Gen. Tony McQueen, Commanding General of USAMRDC and Fort Detrick. "We are excited to welcome him and I'm confident he'll be able to provide both an immediate and long-term impact."
