A Change of Command ceremony was recently held at Fort Campbell's Wilson Theater as departing Garrison Commander, Colonel Joseph P. Kuchan passed the reigns to incoming Garrison Commander, Colonel Jeremy D. Bell.

“The ceremony marks the transfer of command authority from a commander to his successor. It's a great event and an opportunity for the people with whom the commanders have worked (or will work) to come together,” Deputy Garrison Commander Jon Hunter said.

Hunter said the Garrison team proudly provides a lot of services for soldiers and their families. Garrison leadership also works to create strong relationships within the surrounding communities.

“We work hard to take care of our soldiers and their families,” Hunter said. “This is a great organization with a lot of talented people. That's the key to any successful organization - great folks who take pride in their job and who come to work every day focused on doing great things. We are thankful for the outstanding work that Colonel Kuchan has done,”
