There has been a change in leadership on Redstone Arsenal. Thursday, Colonel John Hamilton passed the title of Garrison Commander onto Colonel William Marks.

Colonel Hamilton has held the position since late 2010. He's retiring from the Army after 23 years and taking a job in the private sector.

There was a change of command ceremony Thursday to signify the shift in leadership. It's a military tradition that symbolizes a transfer of authority from one commander to the next.

Colonel Hamilton thanked his wife and children for standing by and supporting him through multiple deployments.

Colonel Marks is no stranger to Redstone Arsenal. He was formally the deputy director of Army Material Command.
