Lt. Col. Michael L. Sellers assumed command of the Detroit District July 10, 2014, at the Grosse Pointe War Memorial. www.warmemorial.org
Amongst the splendor of the war memorial both military and civilians alike were in their finest as they attended the Detroit District’s 53rd biannual change of command.
“I’m confident that I’m in good hands, I consider it an incredible honor that I’m actually going to be part of this fine district,” said Sellers.
Presiding over the ceremony and giving Sellers this honor was Col. Steven J. Roemhildt the Great Lakes and Ohio River Division commander, who told the district employees that Sellers was the right officer for the job.
“What do we do in the Detroit District and what do we do in the Army Corps of Engineers, what do we build? I’ll tell you what we do we’re building a nation, and that’s something you can hang your hat on, that’s something you can go home with and say ‘I am building a nation,’” said Roemhildt.
Seller’s deployed to Iraq as the engineer operations officer. He has also served in the engineer battalions at Fort Polk, La., and Fort Bragg, N.C., as well as serving in the Redstone Arsenal in Ala.
