Night Stalkers hold change of command ceremony

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

There's a big change at the top for the Night Stalkers.

Lt. Col. Bill Golden handed over command of the Third Battalion 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment - Night Stalkers to Lt. Col. Chris Black.

Black's no stranger. He served as a Night Stalker in Savannah about a decade ago. He now returns to continue the rich tradition.

"Taking over for someone like Lt. Col. Bill Golden is truly going to be difficult for me to do. He's such an outstanding officer. But I just want to continue to so some of the missions that he's been already working on while here and just continue to refine. I don't see anything growth wise, but just refinement and getting things better," Black said.

Black's numerous decorations include the Bronze Star, the Meritorious Service Medal and the Army Commendation Medal.
