Tony T. Williams, Master Sergeant at United States Army, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Military for dedication, achievements, and leadership in military communications.
MSG Williams has served his country in the United States Army for more than two decades in a variety of roles. He currently excels as the Detachment Sergeant in the Criminal Investigations Division of the Sixth Military Police Group at Joint Base Lewis–McChord in Washington state. From 2014 to 2021, he had leveraged his expertise in telecommunications as a signal Noncommissioned Officer for various air defense, cavalry, field artillery, infantry, military intelligence brigades and battalions based across the United States, Germany and South Korea. One of MSG Williams’ previous deployments was to Logar Province, Afghanistan in 2013, where he was responsible for advising, assessing, validating, and fighting with a forward-deployed Afghan National Army Infantry Battalion, advising the unit’s Communications section on all communications equipment and matters, enabling the unit to facilitate the Commander’s ability to command and control his unit during the 2013 fighting campaign.
After obtaining a Bachelor of Arts, magna cum laude, in gerontology in 2015, MSG Williams continued his education with a Master of Arts in health care administration from Ashford University, now The University of Arizona Global Campus, in 2018. He is currently studying toward an educational doctorate with Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. His affiliations include the Gerontological Society of America, the American College of Health Care Administrators, the Society for Post-Acute and Long-Term Care Medicine, the Armed Forces Communications and Electronics Association, the Signal Corps Regimental Association, the U.S. Cavalry Association, the Military Police Regimental Association, and the Air Defense Artillery Association.
MSG Williams has accrued many honors during his service, including a NATO Medal awarded by the Secretary-General of NATO for his service in Afghanistan. He was also awarded the Combat Action Badge by the United States Army, as well as the German Armed Forces Badge of Marksmanship (GOLD), the German Military Proficiency Badge (GOLD) and a Letter of Commendation from the President of South Korea. He attributes his success to family, citing the example of his great granduncle, Bishop Dr. Robert S. Williams, a Doctor in Divinity in the late 1800s and a leader in the CME Church, as well as the mentorship of Major Dallas Miller, U.S. Army Retired, his JROTC instructor, and his commanding officer CSM Garland Sullivan, who taught him the principles of leadership, mentorship, and advising at the senior leader level.
MSG Williams maintains that his most notable achievement was being inducted into the Sergeant Morales Club when he was in Germany, one of the two prestigious Noncommissioned Officer clubs in the U.S. Army. In the coming years, his goal is to complete his doctorate in educational leadership that and to be a high school JROTC Instructor after he retires from the military.
