Deputy Commander, Lt. Gen. Bob Penland, with 25 years service, and Command Sgt. Maj. Jim Jordan, with 20 years service, are both 1965 graduates of Farragut High School who will be retiring, then transferred to the Advisory Staff of the USSC.

They join fellow retiree/transfers, Commanding Gen. Robert Zimmerman, who has 45 years military and community service, and Intelligence Officer, Maj. Gen. Jack McClain, with 27 years service.

They will be replaced by: Commanding General, Maj. Gen. Cleve Miller; Deputy Commander, Maj. Gen. Paul Norman, and Adjutant General, BG Glynn Simmons.

The USSC is voluntary and a privilege that is extended to those individuals who desire to support the goals and objectives of the USSC in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Association, American Red Cross, National Voluntary Organizations in Disaster, United States Armed Forces, state and local disaster relief, police, fire and rescue organizations.

As a Military Society, the USSC uses a military rank structure within its organization.

Each volunteers rank reflects their prior military and civilian experience, education, current workforce position and their ability to render service to the USSC.
