The Commanding General of Fort Gordon and the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence is hosting a change of responsibility ceremony, as Command Sgt. Maj. Delia Quintero relinquishes responsibility to Sgt. Maj. Michael Starett.

The event begins at 10 a.m. on Fort Gordon’s Barton Field and is scheduled to conclude at 11 a.m., with media interviews directly after.

Quintero was the first female to serve as the Command Sgt. Maj. of Fort Gordon and the U.S. Army Cyber Center of Excellence, senior enlisted advisor to the Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Paul Stanton. Since arriving in February 2022, she has been instrumental in the installations ability to remain mission ready throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and has played a key role in Fort Gordon’s ongoing transformation process.

When asked about her feelings surrounding the upcoming ceremony, Quintero said, “I feel great. It is always bittersweet, but I think I have done what the Army asks any leader to do. Be an ambassador for the Army, a change agent, build cohesive teams and develop leaders.”

Sgt. Maj. Starrett is no stranger to Fort Gordon, having served on the post in a variety of positions over the past 30 years, including as the Fort Gordon Garrison Command Sgt. Maj. from 2019-2020.

“I am happy to be a part of building the signal, cyber and electromagnetic warfare force for the Army of 2030. After 30 years of serving in the signal field, it is great to play a part in building the next generation,” Starrett said.
