Admiral In Charge Of Army Armor School?

They put a Navy admiral in charge of the US Army’s Armor School?

What does the Navy know about tanks?!

No, no, no.

The US Army’s Commandant of the US Army Armor School is a Brigadier General named Kevin Admiral.

Brigadier General Kevin D. Admiral assumed duties as the Armor School Commandant on 27 September 2019.

Commissioned in Armor from the University of Kansas in 1994, Brigadier General Admiral holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Cellular Biology and a Master of Science in Campaign Planning & Strategy from the Joint Advanced Warfighting School. He is also a graduate of the Royal College of Defence Studies, London where he was a Senior Service College fellow.

Brigadier General Admiral has served in Armor, Cavalry, Mechanized Infantry and Stryker formations during his career. He served as an OC/T at the National Training Center, Small Group Instructor for the Armor Captain Career Course at Fort Knox, KY and Aide-de-Camp to the 36th Army Chief of Staff. His command assignments at every echelon from Company through Regiment includes two commands in combat; 1st Battalion, 36th Infantry (SBCT) and 3d U.S. Cavalry Regiment (SBCT) in Afghanistan. Following command of the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen at Fort Hood, TX, Brigadier General Admiral served as Executive Officer to the Commanding General of United Nations Command, Combined Forces Command, US Forces Korea (UNC/CFC/USFK). Prior to assuming his current duties at Fort Benning, he most recently served as the Deputy Commanding General for Maneuver, 4th Infantry Division and Fort Carson and Commander, Task Force Southeast in Paktiya, Afghanistan.

It’s Friday and I just found this kind of funny. The plays on his name just write themselves.

  1. When I was in the Navy I served with a guy who’s last name was Sergeant. He was a Second Class Petty Officer (E-5) so his name was “Petty Officer Sergeant”.

    Turn about, enlisted style.

  2. General Admiral. Golly gee wizz, he must have gold braid all over his hat and down his back like a hippy….

  3. Such a pity he didn’t go into the Navy. While Admiral Admiral would be fun, Ensign Admiral would be more fun.
