Lt. Gen. Edward Cardon, commanding general of U.S. Army Cyber Command/Second Army, administers the Oath of Allegiance during the promotion ceremony of Maj. Gen. John Morrison Jr., commanding general of U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command.

The commanding general of U.S. Army Network Enterprise Technology Command was promoted to major general in a ceremony Monday in front of Greely Hall here. Maj. Gen. John Morrison Jr. was promoted to his new rank by Lt. Gen. Edward Cardon, commanding general of the U.S. Army Cyber Command/Second Army.

“I first met John when I took command of Army Cyber a little over 11 months ago,” Cardon said. “I will just tell you that I am simply amazed by what he’s able to do. It was no surprise to me that — as time progressed — the Army selected him to come here to NETCOM as a one-star, which is normally a two-star command; and here we are today pinning that second star on him.”

Cardon praised Morrison for his accomplishments throughout his time commanding units in Southwest Asia, the Balkans, and most recently as the commanding general of the 7th Signal Command (Theater). Cardon predicted Morrison will see more opportunities in the future, possibly pinning on another star.

“But he will never say that,” Cardon said, referring to Morrison’s humble nature. “That’s not the way he is. What he’ll say is, ‘It’s the entire team.’ As I remind him time and time again, most great teams have a great leader. In [NETCOM’s] case, you have a great leader and great command team.”

After Morrison was officially promoted by his Family, he thanked retired Lt. Gen. Carroll Pollett, former NETCOM commanding general and director of the Defense Information Systems Agency, for his mentorship, and presented flowers and gifts to his Family, who has supported him for many years. He thanked the Sierra Vista community and Fort Huachuca leaders in attendance, and commended the NETCOM Team for their hard work and dedication, making a difference for the Army every day.

“To the NETCOM Family — it’s been four months since we started our journey together,” Morrison said to the assembled crowd. “I look forward to the challenges that are in front of us; because I know if any team is going to embrace change, lead change and drive change, it is the NETCOM Family.”
