Command Sgt. Maj. Dennis Creecy retires after 42 years in Military

 

Tennessee Military DepartmentNashville, TN – It seems like a long time ago since 18-year-old Dennis Creecy raised his right hand to join the military as a lowly private. But then again maybe it wasn’t all that long ago.

The year was 1969 and young Creecy had just graduated from Wayne County High School.
