Careers and Families of Six Soldiers Honored by the 104th Training Division (Leader Training)
August 16, 2022
JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. – The careers and families of six Soldiers were honored by the 104th Training Division (Leader Training) during a retirement ceremony, April 23.
Retirees included: Col. Thomas W. Olsen (104th deputy commander), Chaplain (Lt. Col.) James R. Maxwell (104th chaplain), Lt. Col. Robin D. MacBride (104th internal review chief), Master Sgt. Vaughn M. Wyer (104th G-3 mobility non-commissioned officer), Sgt. 1st Class Vincente Mariscal (104th G-2 NCOIC), Sgt. 1st Class Chad M. Wilson (104th financial management NCO).
The ceremony, held at the Family Resource Center, helped culminate their careers that ended as Timberwolves, a division dating back more than one hundred years, including time as an infantry division, and currently training officers in the Reserve Officer Training Corps, U.S. Military Academy, and future leaders at basic training sites.
“Between the six Soldiers we are honoring today, there are a collective of 179 years of service,” said Brig. Gen. Rodney Fischer, commanding general of the 104th. “Retiring while assigned to the 104th Training Division adds to that legacy exponentially because it means they were a part of training the Army’s future leaders.”
Fischer presented awards to each and took the opportunity to recognize family, spouses and others who helped shape their careers.
