Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler III visited Fort Bragg to meet with sergeants major from various commands throughout the Army during a Board of Directors meeting at U.S. Army Forces Command Headquarters, Jan. 14-18. Topics discussed included uniform changes, current Army standards and regulations as well as the future of the Army.

“It was important for me to visit Fort Bragg because there are some things from the Department of the Army level that senior NCOs (noncommissioned officers) within our Army need to work through and understand,” said Chandler.

Chandler, the 14th sergeant major of the Army, assumed responsibly in March 2011. In his position, he serves as the senior enlisted adviser to the Army’s chief of staff on all enlisted-related matters, particularly in areas affecting the Soldiers’ quality of life and training.

Chandler took time to visit Picerne Military Housing’s Randolph Pointe on Fort Bragg to get a firsthand look of the quality of life for single Soldiers.
