Commander to Major

Local Commander promoted to rank of Major

On March 1, 2018, the Commander of the Greenville, NC Army Recruiting Company was promoted to the rank of Major.  Major Charles Thomson leads a company of 35 non-commissioned officers across five recruiting stations in eastern North Carolina.

The company's mission is to build the strength of the U.S. Army while providing opportunities for local young people to achieve their goals. Since Major Thomson took command in April 2015, over 1,000 fine men and women from eastern North Carolina have joined the Army or the Army Reserve.

From Wisconsin originally, Major Thomson, his wife Dr. Thomson, and their daughter Charlotte truly enjoy the opportunity to live in the great city of Greenville, NC.
