Col. Seth Morgulas, ’99, Honored at New York National Guard Retirement Ceremony

Col. Seth Morgulas' Retirement Award Ceremony

New York Army National Guard Col. Seth Morgulas, a Scarsdale resident, was honored during a retirement award ceremony held at Camp Smith Training Site, near Peekskill, on May 31, 2024.

Morgulas, who recently served as Chief of Joint Staff with Joint Forces Headquarters in New York, was recognized for 31 years of military service, namely his major contributions as previous commander of the 369th Sustainment Brigade. As the former commander of the 369th Sustainment Brigade, Morgulas led over 2500 military personnel assigned to various Army components and multiple branches of service during both domestic and foreign operations across several countries.

The 369th Sustainment Brigade is a storied organization and although the stories from World War One rightfully receive a lot of attention, a large portion of the 369th story has been written over the last 20 years as the New York National Guard transformed in the days after 9/11 to be an all-hazards response force, according to Maj. Gen. Michel Natali, assistant adjutant general of New York.

The recent awarding of the Army Superior Unit Award by the Department of the Army, in recognition of all the hard work that was done during the COVID-19 pandemic was largely attributed to Morgulas’ leadership and the Soldiers he commanded that responded to New York at a most desperate time.

“He did everything as far as leadership goes when we think of the Guard,” Natali said. “Always ready, always there, whether it was two deployments to Operation Spartan Shield or in support of our COVID-19 response.”
The ceremony was held at Camp Smith Training Site where many units under Morgulas’ command trained.
