Fort Eisenhower garrison command sergeant major ceremony set for April 2

The Fort Eisenhower Garrison Change of Responsibility ceremony will be at 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 2 at the Eisenhower Catering and Conference Center on Fort Eisenhower.

Outgoing Fort Eisenhower Garrison Command Sergeant Major, Command Sgt. Maj. Aaron Rose, will relinquish his duties and responsibilities as he passes the flag to  Command Sgt. Maj. Daniel Durette, according to an email from Fort Eisenhower’s public affairs office.

A change of responsibility ceremony is a traditional military ceremony rich in symbolism and heritage which reinforces noncommissioned officer authority in the Army and emphasizes their support to the chain of command. The highlight of the ceremony is the passing of colors (the command’s flag), which represents the lineage and honors of the command, in this case, U.S. Army Garrison Fort Eisenhower, according to the news release.

The event will also be live streamed on the Fort Eisenhower Garrison Facebook page when the ceremony commences at approximately 9 a.m.
