Farewell ceremonies were held on post Friday afternoon.

"We're really gonna miss being at Fort Benning, and being outside of this fantastic local community, but we are looking forward to moving back to a division, the 1st Armor Division out of Ft. Bliss, Texas, which has an outstanding reputation as an organization," said Quintas. 

BG Dennis McKean, a deputy commanding general at Fort Bliss, has been selected to serve as the next commandant of the Armor School.
