Change of command at Fort Gordon

Change of command at Fort Gordon

FORT GORDON, GA (WFXG) - There's a new commander and command sergeant major at Fort Gordon.

Commander Eric Heist and Command Sergeant Major Dan McCaraw were welcomed Thursday morning at a change of command and assumption of responsibility ceremony.

The ceremony was also a fitting send-off, as Col. Steven Breton was recognized for his 10 years of service at Fort Gordon.

"My family and I arrived in 2004. So we're departing now, 10 years, with a couple of deployments in between and one short tour away," Breton said. "We've consider Fort Gordon and the Augusta community home."

Col. Heist, the new commander, will serve as commander for two years.
