Military Command Change in Marshall

In a time honored army tradition, the command of a reserve battalion was turned over to a new man today in East Texas. Lieutenant Colonel Pat Hamilton has commanded the reserve 5th Battalion, 112th Armored Regiment for 2 years.

It's a battalion that through history has served in world wars one and two. Today the reins were officially turned over to Major Robert Woodmansee in Marshall.

Hamilton says the battalion is a testament to how ordinary people can step up and become soldiers. The 49th Armored Division out of Longview is part of the battalion.
