Say hello to the new chief!

The Fort Hamilton Army base held a change of command ceremony on July 25 for incoming commander Col. Eluyn Gines and departing leader, Col. Michael Gould. Gould served as commander for the army base for two years and now moves onto a Pentagon position in Washington.

Gines is a Puerto Rican-born military officer, and a graduate of the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program. He also holds a Master’s Degree in human relations from the University of Oklahoma and a Master of Science Degree in national resource strategy from National Defense University.

The new commander comes to Fort Hamilton after a tour of Kuwait, where he served under Army Central Command, and is looking forward to his new gig.

“When I was notified I was going to be the garrison commander for Fort Hamilton, as you can imagine, I was totally excited,” Gines said at the ceremony. “I’m looking forward to working together and making our community a better place.”
