There was a milestone on Fort Jackson today, a change of command for the US Army Corps of Engineers. Col. Roger Gerber of the Savannah district handed over command to Col. Mark Held. Col. Held was the deputy division commander of the Corps of Engineers in Atlanta.
He says he is looking forward to his stay in Savannah. He told us he is "familiar with the Low Country, familiar with military construction program, and I was very honored to serve in Iraq with the Third Infantry Division."
Col. Gerber's next assignment will be commander of the Gulf Region South district in Iraq.
