  • Fort Leavenworth will be bidding farewell to two members of its senior leadership team next week.
    The Deputy Commanding General for the Combined Arms Center, Maj. Gen. Gordon Davis Jr., will be departing the fort to take on his new duties at deputy chief of staff for operations and intelligence at the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe, North Atlantic Treaty Organization in Belgium. The fort's top enlisted officer, Command Sgt. Maj. Christopher Greca, will also be leaving, to become the command sergeant major of Forces Command at Fort Bragg, N.C.
    Davis has been at Fort Leavenworth since March 2012, having arrived to assume responsibility from Brig. Gen. Sean MacFarland. In addition to deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq, Davis had previously served in U.S., NATO and United Nations operations in Bosnia, Mozambique, Zaire, Rwanda, Congo and Liberia.
    Greca has served as the non-commissioned counterpart to the fort's commanding general since November 2011, arriving alongside the post's current top officer, Commanding General Lt. Gen. David Perkins. He was previously deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom as part of a Joint Special Operation Task Force.
    Perkins will honor Davis with an award ceremony Monday at the fort's Lewis and Clark Center. According to information from fort officials, the ceremony will honor his accomplishments under CAC's Leader Development and Education banner.
    A farewell and retreat ceremony is scheduled for that same afternoon in the Abrams Loop outside of the Lewis and Clark Center.
