FT MEADE, Md. (December 2, 2019)- Avon Cornelius, II, Class of 2003, became a Lieutenant Colonel today at FT Meade, MD. LTC Cornelius is on temporary assignment from Korea, where he serves as Executive Officer for American Forces Network Pacific and senior Defense Media Activity military representative in the Korean Area of Responsibility.
Each promotion is special with laudatory remarks coming from the boss, but the promotion ceremony is also a family affair. LTC Cornelius had his wife Raven who is a Major in the Army, his father and mother, three of his four children, and his brother in attendance. It was truly wonderful that he could squeeze the ceremony in while he was in the States. He will be temporarily stopping in California before heading back to Korea by the weekend.
