Many say sergeant Major Harold Disney is a pioneer who made the eastern Kentucky training site in Knox County and the Wendell H. Ford Training Center to what it is today.
“Tremendous ability just a great patriot, and had a lot with building the facilities we have on both training sites,” says Major General Donald Storm of the Kentucky National Guard.
“Over the years, I have built buildings for troops, training hatchery for the troops repellent tires, and obstacles courses and mountain sides and those type things,” says Major Disney.
To honor Sergeant Major Disney for his contributions, the Kentucky Army National Guard is renaming the eastern Kentucky training site in Knox County in his honor.
Major General Donald Storm says honoring sergeant major Disney is the least the Army National Guard can do for all the contributions he's given.
“I credit the blessings of God but also the great training that we received and conducted individually right here,” says Storm.
Sergeant Major Disney says he'll officially retire December seventh so he can spend more time with his family.
