Capt. David J. Bryson, a native of Tullahoma, Tenn., took command of Naval Support Activity (NSA) Mid-South, in Millington, Tenn., during a change of command ceremony on July 10. Capt. Douglas H. Walker, a native of Tulsa, Okla., relinquished command to Bryson during a traditional Navy ceremony. Walker served as commanding officer since July, 2013. While Millington was not his first choice when he selected new military orders two years ago, Walker said he is grateful that he had the opportunity to serve in such a supportive and patriotic town.
Bryson is taking command following a successful tour as chief of staff for the joint J8 Directorate, which provides analysis support to the Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman. Bryson, who in addition to being native to Tennessee is an alumnus of “Ole Miss” Mississippi University, said he and his family were excited when they found out that he would have the opportunity to serve in the Mid-South. “We are all excited to be home,” he said. “And this is home.” Bryson said he looked forward to working with the military and civilians at NSA Mid-South.
