New commander takes charge of Fort McCoy Garrison
Col. Stephen T. Messenger receives the Fort McCoy Garrison flag July 14, 2022, from Brenda McCullough, director of Installation Management Command-Readiness, at Fort McCoy, Wis., signifying Messenger as the new garrison commander. Messenger replaces Col. Michael D. Poss who became the garrison commander June 10, 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic in a virtual change-of-command ceremony. Poss moves on to serve in a position at the 88th Readiness Division — also at Fort McCoy. Messenger arrives after serving in his prior assignment as the director of engineering and logistics, J4, Joint Task Force Civil Support, Fort Eustis, Va., which was on the front lines of the nation’s COVID response.
