Fort Stewart 3rd Aviation Brigade holds change of command ceremony

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WTOC) - A change in leadership started Thursday for the third aviation brigade at Fort Stewart.

The ceremony was held Thursday morning at Forsyth Park in Savannah. Commander Colonel Mark Johnson passed duties on to Colonel Michael McFadden during the traditional ceremony that represents the shift in a commander’s authority. One soldier we talked to says it was important the ceremony was held somewhere accessible to the public.

“It is important to us because we are a part of this community. Our families are a part of this community. Our kids have grown here, so it’s important to us to show our support and show our appreciation of the City if Savannah as they have provided to us."

The ceremony began at 9 a.m.
