CSM (Ret.) Samuel M. Smith (1999)

When CSM (Ret.) Samuel "Mac" Smith retired as 516th Signal Brigade’s command sergeant major in 1996 after 30 years of Army service, a speaker at his retirement dinner took note of his leadership and expertise, but also his sense of humor. CSM Smith was trainer and mentor to his soldiers, but he included Army civilians and family members in his Army family. His ability in communications and automation was well-known throughout the Signal Regiment, dating to 1986 and the Computer Science School, where he was responsible as the school’s sergeant major for all enlisted training – including eight courses and 1,400 students annually.

His assignments included, the Force Integration Staff Office, 24th Infantry Division (Mechanized), Fort Benning, Ga., Fort Benjamin Harrison, IN., Fort Stewart, GA., Fort Shafter, HI., as well as service in Vietnam, Korea and the Defense Communications Agency in Europe. CSM Smith passed away January 29, 2002 from colon cancer.

His awards and decorations include the Legion of Merit, five awards of the Meritorious Service Medal, and the Signal Corps Regimental Association’s Silver Order of Mercury.

CSM Smith was inducted as a Distinguished Member of the Signal Regiment in 1999.
