Fort Gordon 15th Signal Brigade changes command

FORT GORDON, GA (WFXG) - A morning to remember at Fort Gordon as two distinguished colonels took the next steps in their military careers.

"This is the third time I've commanded within the same brigade," said Colonel Marcus A. Reese. "I feel blessed first, and I feel honored to come back and train soldiers."

Colonel Marcus Reese returns to Fort Gordon and to the 15th Signal Brigade, replacing outgoing Colonel Stephen A. Elle.

"I cannot thank everyone else enough for their support for this brigade and this command," said Elle. "And I'm looking forward to seeing awesome things from team 15 in the future."

Colonel Elle is being reassigned as the director of training with Signal Towers for the Cyber Center of Excellence and Fort Gordon. Colonel Reese said he sees his role contributing to that overall mission.

"I see my role as a key part to continuing that transformation, and ensure the least amount of speed bumps and barriers as we move forward," said Reese.

Both men say they look forward to their new roles and continuing to grow the Fort Gordon missions.
