District deputy promoted to lieutenant colonel

Published Oct. 29, 2018

Maj. Gen. Michael Wehr, Deputy Chief of Engineers/Deputy commanding general, along with Col. Timothy Holman, Office of the Chief Legislative Liaison, promoted Maj. Kevin Lewis, Louisville District deputy commander, to lieutenant colonel in a promotion ceremony held Oct. 26 at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Headquarters in Washington, D.C.

Lt. Col. Lewis assumed responsibility as the deputy commander of the Louisville District in July 2018 and has been determined to set the foundation for USACE Commanding General and 54th U.S. Army Chief of Engineers Lt. Gen. Todd Semonite’s three goals for the organization – to deliver the program, strengthen the foundation and achieve the mission – by working behind the scenes to help Louisville District continue success.

“It was an honor to get promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel by Maj. Gen. Wehr,” Lewis said. “This promotion is a testament of the hard work that many others have poured into me. Specifically, the noncommissioned officers and Soldiers who gave their all for me over the past 17 years. I am truly humbled and look forward to what the future holds.”
