Garrison Welcomes New Commander

US Army Garrison

The Army Garrison on Arsenal Island has a new leader. This week, Colonel Todd Allison became commander, succeeding Colonel Stephen Marr. 

Allison comes to the Garrison from the Army Sustainment Command on the island, where he served as deputy chief of staff. 

After two years, Marr is leaving the island to serve overseas. 

Instead of a formal ceremony on Memorial Field, the change of command was held indoors with just a few people in attendence because of COVID-19, and was broadcast live over Facebook.
