Estabrooks, a native of Midwest City, Okla., and a resident of St. Petersburg, Fla., took over for the retiring Command Sgt. Maj. Roger B. Schulz, who began his command at AR-MEDCOM November 2007.

During the change of command ceremony, Maj. Gen. Luis R. Visot, deputy commanding general, Operations, for the U.S. Army Reserve Command, Fort Bragg, N.C., transferred the AR-MEDCOM colors to Maj. Gen. Bryan R. Kelly, who passed the colors to Estabrooks.

“I truly appreciate your support going forward,” remarked Kelly. “I truly look forward to working with Command Sergeant Major Estabrooks and his wife, Shana, as a command team for AR-MEDCOM.”

Estabrooks, an Infantry Soldier, began his military career in 1985 in the U.S. Army Reserve in a training battalion. He later became a drill sergeant in Bravo Company, 4th Battalion, 291st Regiment. Since then he has continued to serve in positions of increased leadership responsibility and key noncommissioned officer positions. His last duty assignment was command sergeant major of the 86th Division (Operations), the “Blackhawk Division” at Fort McCoy.
