FORT GORDON, GA (WFXG) -

Despite the gray, gloomy skies, the weather didn't temper the celebratory ceremony at all as Fort Gordon said goodbye to one leader and hello to another.

"What we're going to have to do is come together, in a way we really haven't in the past," said Maj. Gen. Stephen G. Fogarty, who is stepping in as commanding general.

Maj. Gen. LaWarren V. Patterson, who served as commanding general for two years, is starting an assignment in Texas.

"Mixed emotions," Patterson said. "Four years at Fort Gordon, with the last two being as a commanding general. Made a lot of friends, going to miss everyone. We've accomplished a lot here in the last three to four years."

Some of those accomplishments include transitioning Fort Gordon into the Cyber Center of Excellence, which officials say will help defend the U.S. from 21st-century warfare.

"We really have to take a bunch of different efforts that were scattered all over throughout the Army, and finally have the opportunity to bring them together," Fogarty said.

Fogarty said it's an honor to have Cyber Command based right here in Augusta.

"The Army made the decision, as you know, to move Army Cyber Command to Fort Gordon, and I think that's a recognition," he said.

Both commanding generals said the best is yet to come on post.
