A new garrison commander and garrison command sergeant major have assumed their leadership duties at Fort Riley.

Col. Andrew Cole Jr., took command Thursday from Col. William Clark, while Command Sgt. Major Terry Gardner took duties from Command Sgt. Major Colvin Bennett. Both Clark and Bennett retired from Army duty during the ceremony.

Cole comes from Fort Leavenworth where he was an operations duty chief. He previously served with the 1st Infantry Division as commander of the 3rd Assault Helicopter Battalion where he led the unit during deployment to Iraq.

The garrison commander oversees operations at the Army post, including services to support soldier and family programs. Fort Riley is home to the 1st Infantry Division and nearly 18,000 soldiers and their families.
