Passing of the sword; Sgt. Maj. Sisneros retires after 30 years

27 Nov 2015 | Lance Cpl. Timothy Valero I MEF Headquarters Group

Sgt. Maj. Darryl J. Sisneros, I MHG sergeant major, relinquished his duties to Sgt. Maj. David A. Wilson, at a relief, appointment and retirement ceremony aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, Nov. 19, 2015.

“The relief and appointment of a sergeant major is such a remarkable reflection point in a unit’s history,” said Col. Roberta L. Shea, commanding officer of I Marine Expeditionary Force Headquarters Group, I MEF.

Sgt. Maj. Darryl J. Sisneros, I MHG sergeant major, relinquished his duties to Sgt. Maj. David A. Wilson, at a relief, appointment and retirement ceremony aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, Nov. 19, 2015. 

The mission of I MHG is to provide administrative, training and logistical support for the I MEF both while aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, and when forward deployed.

Sisneros began his journey at Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego in February 1986. Following 30 years of honorable service in the Marine Corps to include deployments during Operation Desert Shield/ Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom, he was awarded the Legion of Merit for meritorious conduct and outstanding service.

After handing over his ceremonial noncommissioned officer sword to Sgt. Maj. Wilson, the former sergeant major of Marine Wing Support Squadron 371, Sisneros retired from the Marine Corps.

Taking a moment to reflect on Sisneros’ impact on I MHG, Shea acknowledge Sisneros for keeping I MHG loyal to the Marine Corps’ traditions.

Being in command is not an opportunity to impose your own style on your unit, shared Shea. She gives credit to Sisneros for keeping herself and the rest of I MHG true to the Marine Corps’ traditions from the way Marines wear their uniforms to conducting ceremonies. Sisneros knows it’s not about personal opinions but loyalty to the Marine Corps. The Marine Corps is left better because of Sisneros years of loyalty to traditions, she added.

Pausing for a moment to keep his composure, Sisneros’ gave his last speech as sergeant major. He thanked the Marine Corps and all it has provided to his family.

“The Corps gave me and my wife a lot,” said Sisneros. “The house that we live in and my children's education, I am very thankful for what the corps has given us.”

Throughout Sisneros’ years of service, he has faced his share of challenges, but he has always shown a devotion to duty and a spirit of sacrifice in keeping with the proud traditions of the Marine Corps.

“You are a Marine to be emulated,” said Wilson. “You are an unbelievable example to follow and the thousands of Marines that have served with you in your 30 years have looked at you and said; ‘I want to be just like you.’ I can count myself among those people.”

Wilson, a prior infantryman, is a combat veteran of five deployments, including the Battle of Fallujah as part of Operation Al Fajr/Phantom Fury and Operation Iraqi Freedom.

The ceremony concluded with the passing of Old Glory where Sisneros received the flag that once flew over the I MHG office. The flag was given to Sisneros as a token of appreciation for his honor, patriotism and years of service.
