CSM (Ret.) McKinley Curtis, III

CSM Curtisís military career started in 1974 when he enlisted in the Army as a radio teletypewriter operator. He spent the next 30 years in all levels of enlisted leadership to include team chief, drill sergeant and senior drill sergeant, first sergeant, sergeant major advisor to the New York Army National Guard, command sergeant major for both battalion and brigade level units, and culminated his active duty service as commandant of the Signal Regimental NCO Academy, the largest NCO Academy in the Army. He held this position for 40 consecutive months and ensured all soldiers coming through the academy both continued their military education and were actively engaged in volunteer efforts. He was hand-picked by the Sergeant Major of the Army to be the senior mentor of his fellow command sergeants major. In fact, he taught the Command Sergeants Major designee course to our very own 20th CSM of the regiment, CSM Thomas Clark. Following his retirement, CSM Curtis has continued to serve the Signal Corps. He started his civilian service as Chief, Operations Division - Directorate of Training. Now he is the lead development analyst for the Leader College of Information Technology (LCIT) where he oversees 20 million dollars worth of contracts and continuously works to secure additional resources for LCIT in order to provide the best possible training to its students. He continues to mentor Signal leaders, especially sergeants major. He is an active member of the Sergeants Major Association and has been a key player in providing thousands of dollars in scholarships to outstanding young Americans. He is a mentor to one of the local Cub Scout packs here in Augusta, serving as cub master for pack 417. For a career of commitment to signal soldiers, families, and his community, CSM (R) McKinley Curtis was recognized as a Distinguished Member of the Regiment in 2009.
