FORT RUCKER -- During a promotion ceremony at the Army Aviation Museum at Fort Rucker, General Michael D. Lundy was appointed to the rank of Major General from Brigadier General, making him a two star general.
Lieutenant General Robert Brown, commanding general of the United States Army Combined Arms Center at Fort Leavenworth, informed the audience of the number of missions General Lundy has selflessly served, as well as recognized the support of his family.
General Lundy thanked the soldiers he fought alongside, as well as the mentors who have helped him throughout his career.
General Lundy said his biggest support comes from his wife and two daughters.
"You know what I'm most proud of is on that front row today," Gen. Lundy said. "All three of my girls, so thank you."
Each general is presented with their own General Officer Flag. The flag serves as a symbol to soldiers to tell them, "the general is here, all is well, follow him."
Some of General Lundy's accomplishments include the Legion of Merit, Bronze Star Medal and Defense Meritorious Service Medal.
