Hosted by Mr. Davis D. Tindoll, Jr., Director, Atlantic Region Installation Management Command, the ceremony also included turning over command of the garrison to Col. David L. Dellinger.

Gen. James C. McConville, Commanding General of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) and Fort Campbell, Kentucky; as well as the Commanding General of the Installation Management Command, currently Lt. Gen. Michael Ferriter.
