FORT HOOD — The top enlisted soldier at Fort Hood is heading to another post.

After 20 months with III Corps, Command Sgt. Maj. Scott C. Schroeder bid farewell to Fort Hood during a Wednesday morning ceremony at the corps’ headquarters.

He is off to Fort Bragg, N.C., to serve with U.S. Army Forces Command. During his remarks, Schroeder spoke directly to the noncommissioned officers of Fort Hood.

“Challenge your soldiers, they expect it,” he said. “Inspire soldiers by your personal example.”

Schroeder’s replacement has not been announced.
