FORT KNOX, Ky. –
U.S. Army Recruiting Command’s deputy commanding general for support has been recognized by the Adjutant General Corps as a Distinguished Member of the Corps - Class of 2022.
Brig. Gen. Daphne Davis, an Army Reserve general officer currently assigned to USAREC, has been part of the AG Corps for the last 32 years.
“In every assignment I took it upon myself to build on the knowledge, skills and experiences of the last assignment,” she said.
Individuals are appointed as DMOCs to supplement and assist efforts of the Honorary Representatives of the Corps. Their activities include promoting and enhancing the history and traditions of the Adjutant General Corps as well as promoting the warfighting ethos among Soldiers and creating cohesion among members. These distinguished members are honored with a permanent display in the AG Corps Hall of Honor at the Adjutant General School at Fort Jackson, South Carolina.
“My greatest desire is to serve those who serve our nation. This recognition culminates all those years of service and dedication to the profession and the Soldiers we serve,” Davis said. “My motivation to be successful is simple, ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you.’ I’ve always wanted to provide a level of professionalism and care to those that I served that I would expect in return.”
As Davis has moved forward in her career, she has become a role model for young officers. Her advice to them is the same advice she received many years ago: “In order to be great, you must first serve,” she said. “Keep plugging away and one day you just might find yourself there.”
