BINGHAMTON — Lockport resident Anthony Giamberdino, an Iraq War veteran, has been named Command Sergeant Major of the New York Army National Guard's Binghamton-based 204th Engineer Battalion.

As Command Sergeant Major, Giamberdino is the highest ranking enlisted Soldier in the unit, responsible for providing advice to the battalion commander on the training, morale, and readiness of the Soldiers in the battalion's four companies. The battalion, which has been mobilized repeatedly to respond to state natural disasters, has elements in Binghamton, Buffalo, Kingston, Cortlandt Manor, Horseheads and Walton.

Giamberdino joined the Army Reserve in 1991 and was trained as a combat engineer. In 1993 he joined the 827th Engineer Company of the New York Army National Guard. At that time the unit was a Sapper company, trained to reduce obstacles under enemy fire so that infantrymen and other combat elements could advance.

In December 2003 he mobilized as an engineer squad leader to support the New York Army National Guard's 2nd Battalion 108th Infantry which deployed to Iraq. His eight-man squad was attached to Company B 2nd Battalion 108th Infantry, which was operating out of Balad Iraq in 2004.

 The squad supported the infantry company by conducting route reconnaissance and assisting in the destruction of improvised explosive devices. The team also supported Iraq elections held that year.

Giamberdino has served in a variety of leadership positions to include platoon sergeant and 1st Sergeant of the 152nd Engineer Support Company.

He has supported a number of state active duty missions to include the National Guard response the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the response to Tropical Storms Lee and Irene in 2011, Superstorm Sandy in 2012 and the Buffalo lake effect snow storm in November 2014.

Giamberdino holds an Associates Degree in Architecture from Erie County Community College and also studied Engineering at the University of Buffalo.

He and his wife have four children.
