FORT STEWART, Ga. – The 3rd Battalion, 67th Armor Regiment, 2nd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, hosted its change of command ceremony on June 16 where Lt. Col. Steven L. Chadwick relinquished command to Lt. Col. Daniel G. Hodermarsky on Cottrell Field at Fort Stewart.
Chadwick has commanded the 3rd Bn., 67th AR, an armored tank battalion with the call sign “Hound,” since June 2019 and thanked his family, veterans, and Soldiers on the field for their support.
“I have discovered the last few weeks that when you are finishing battalion command you spend a great deal of time reflecting on the privilege and experience of command and the many accomplishments of your Soldiers,” said Chadwick.
Chadwick’s commitment to continue a legacy of success and determination in the Hound battalion was followed with results.
“Steve, you possess the spirit of a warrior,” said Col. Terry R. Tillis, commander of 2nd ABCT, 3rd ID. “To the Chadwicks, thank you for investment, your sacrifice, your perspectives and your unique ability to accomplish the mission. You spearheaded multiple initiatives having an impact on the battalion, brigade and division.”
During his time in command, Chadwick served as a commander who led Soldiers through their recent deployment to Europe and Germany. He will continue his journey at the National Training Center operations group at Fort Irwin, California, as the task force senior trainer.
For Hodermarsky, this is his second time serving in the Division. He previously served as the operations officer of the 3rd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 3rd ID, completing multiple deployments to the Baltics, Poland and Germany.
“Daniel, welcome back to our division, we are excited to have you and your family again," said Tillis. "I know you will continue to do great things. I ask you to continue to lead by example and hold yourself and others accountable."
Hodermarsky most recently served as the Professor of Military Science at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
“I’m incredibly honored, humbled, and excited to be back here at Fort Stewart with the 3rd ID,” said Hodermarsky. "Thank you to everyone for your ongoing support. All policies and procedures remain in effect. Ready for war! Send me! Rock of the Marne!"
