HAMPTON, Va. (February 4, 2020) –We are pleased to announce that Carl J. Faison, Class of 1994, has now joined the Eagle Club. On Friday, January 31, at Memorial Chapel, FT Lee, VA, MG Rodney Fogg, Commanding General, Combined Arms Support Command made it official in the presence of God and a Chapel packed with family, relatives, friends, grade school teachers, high school classmates, church members, fellow Pirates, colleagues, subordinates and superiors.
The City of Boykins, VA which is in Southhampton County, showed up and showed out. It had to be a ghost town in Boykins, because they were all at FT Lee. For the second consecutive day, small town America has shown up in a very BIG way. They came to pay honor for one of their own, the pride they have displayed is humbling and reflective of what happens when a home town hero does well. I have known COL Faison for most of his adult life, and I know without hesitation he has excelled through brute determination and faith in the God he serves..Once again we are back to the principles LTG Williams discussed at LTC Butler's promotion yesterday, COL Faison demonstrated leadership traits are what the Army is looking for in its leaders.
