Capt. Thomas Stauffer

Capt. Thomas Stauffer oversees soldiers from HHC, 1-5, 2ABCT as they conduct CBRN training on April 19 here.

Capt. Thomas Bugg Stauffer, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, is one of 28 company-grade officers who received the MacArthur Leadership award. The award, which is annually given for calendar-year achievements, is recognition for the embodiment of the ideals that Gen. Douglas MacArthur stood for: duty, honor and country.

The selection process starts with a nomination for candidates to compete within their brigades and divisions all the way up to FORSCOM. For the first time, FORSCOM nominees were sent to Fort Bragg, N.C. for a three-day assessment, which included a physical fitness test, weapons qualification, and a recognition review board, among other tests. The packets were then forwarded to the Department of the Army where they were judged along with other nominees across the Army.
