FORT BLISS, Texas – Three outstanding sergeants major were inducted into the U.S. Army Sergeants Major Academy Hall of Honor on Aug. 23, 2013.

The inductees are retired Sgt. Maj. Jeffery J. Wells, former operations sergeant major for the deputy chief of staff, retired Sgt. Maj. Danny R. Hubbard, former operations sergeant major U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command, and retired Sgt. Maj. Jeffery Colimon, former operations sergeant major U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command.

Among the attendees was Sgt. Maj. of the Army Raymond F. Chandler, who was visiting the post to welcome the newest USASMA class.

The inductees, who have had a direct influence on the evolution and transformation of the Noncommissioned Officer Education System, were nominated by their peers and then chosen by a selection committee at USASMA, where the nomination packets were reviewed and voted on.

Once chosen, a plaque for each inductee with his photo and biography is placed in the Hall of Honor in recognition for their contributions to the noncommissioned officer corps.

“What it takes to be a good sergeant major is to be a good leader and a good listener and, sometimes, it is just a matter of caring about soldiers,” said Wells.

Wells told a story from when he was a young sergeant and he met a private, who no one thought would amount to much. Wells sat down to talk with him and after about 20 minutes, the soldier burst into tears.

“I asked the soldier why he was crying, and the private told me that the biggest problem was no one ever gave him a chance or really talked to him,” said Wells. “They just made him do things that he wasn't sure he should do.”

That soldier went on to become a master sergeant because someone took the time to talk with and mentor him, explained Wells.

Because of that conversation, Wells said he learned one of his most cherished lessons: that soldiers were always listening to their leaders.

Examples like this are just one of the many reasons sergeants major, such as Wells, Hubbard, and Coliman, were nominated for the Hall of Honor.

“I have always based my career on taking care of soldiers, so to be inducted because of the job you have done to serve noncommissioned officers makes the Hall of Honor a very prestigious thing.”
