V Corps will welcome Command Sgt. Maj. Michael D. Bush of the 1st Armored Division as the corps’ new senior enlisted soldier during a ceremony Sept. 13.

Bush will replace Command Sgt. Maj. Bruce L. Likens during a 4 p.m. ceremony at Victory Park on Campbell Barracks in Heidelberg, Germany.

Bush comes to V Corps after three years as the 1st AD command sergeant major. During his tour with the division, Bush deployed to southwest Asia for more than a year in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, according to a V Corps news release.

The outgoing command sergeant major has served as acting sergeant major for V Corps since February.

With the arrival of Bush, Likens will return to his position as command sergeant major of V Corps’ 69th Air Defense Artillery Brigade at Giebelstadt Army Airfield in Germany.
