Meet Fort Hamilton’s new leader!

Col. Peter Sicoli took over Brooklyn’s lone army post in a change-of-command ceremony at the garrison on July 27.

The Long Island native has served in the U.S. and abroad, including multiple combat deployments to Kuwait and Iraq, officials said.

Sicoli takes over for Col. Joseph Davidson, who has headed the fort since 2014.

Davidson will move on to be deputy commandant at the Military Academy at West Point.

During the same ceremony, Command Sgt. Major Kevin Fauntleroy — the garrison’s most senior enlisted — passed the baton to Sgt. Maj. Tony Stephens.
