Command Sgt. Maj. Todd Priest receives the Civil Affairs Regimental Award

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Farris, Deputy Commanding General of the 108th Training Command (Initial Entry Training) presented Command Sgt. Maj. Todd Priest, Command Sergeant Major of the 3rd Medical Command (Theater), the General Winfield Scott Gold Medallion in Peachtree City, Georgia on February 5, 2022.

Farris said it was a privilege to present the Civil Affairs Regimental Award to Priest, who was the prior Command Sergeant Major of the 108th Training Command (IET).

“It was an honor to present the Winfield Scott Medallion to CSM Priest for not only his contributions to the Civil Affairs community, but also his continued leadership has made such a huge impact on the Soldiers of both the 108th Training Command and 3rd Medical Command (Theater).”

Civil Affairs Regimental awards come in Bronze, Silver and Gold, with Gold being the most prestigious. The medallions are named after General Winfield Scott, who is considered to be the “Father of Civil Affairs” for his remarkable negotiation skills as a “Warrior-Diplomat” at the end of the Black Hawk War and his service in the U.S. – Mexican War.

Receiving this award marks an important distinction in one’s career as a Civil Affairs professional and further validates the contributions to the defense of the Nation as a ‘Warrior-Diplomat.’
