2019 Change of Command
Col. David Ray, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District commander, is awarded the Silver Order of the de Fleury Medal from Brig. Gen. Kim Colloton, South Pacific Division commander, prior to Ray relinquishing command and retiring on July 11, 2019, in downtown Sacramento, Calif. The uncommon medal was awarded to Ray by the Army Engineer Association for the positive impact Ray made on the Army, USACE and the nation throughout his career. For the past three years, Ray commanded the nearly 1,100-person district, which stretches from southern California to western Colorado, and includes three of USACE’s five largest U.S. projects. In addition to his final assignment, Ray’s 28-year Army career included combat deployments and worldwide assignments as an engineer platoon leader, a battalion operations and executive officer, and battalion commander.
