The U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM) Headquarters and Headquarters Company (HHC) welcomed both a new commander and first sergeant over the last week.
Capt. Dimetrus Rowe joined the INSCOM team as the new HHC commander in a Change of Command (CoC) Ceremony at the Nolan Building, Ft. Belvoir, Virginia, June 9.
Rowe assumed command from Capt. Michael Quigley, who is heading to Ft. Huachuca, Arizona, for military intelligence training opportunities.
In a Change of Responsibility (CoR) Ceremony, 1st Sgt. Queron Eddie became INSCOM's new HHC first sergeant at the Nolan Building, June 2.
Eddie takes over for Master Sgt. Jose Montanez, who is heading to the U.S. Army’s Sergeants Major Academy on Ft. Bliss, Texas.
Rowe and Eddie both bring exceptional experiences and leadership ability to INSCOM and will be welcome additions to help bring INSCOM HHC to the next level.
Quigley and Montanez’s legacy includes a superb commitment to taking care of Soldiers and Civilians, helping transition INSCOM into post-pandemic operations and their phenomenal ability to accomplish any mission. Their leadership, positive attitudes and presence will be missed.
Both the CoC and CoR ceremonies are time-honored traditions that symbolize the passing of responsibility, authority and accountability from one leader to another.
The change of command ceremony represents a handover of authorities and responsibilities within a unit or command. The Colors flown at every ceremony represents the history, tradition, and accomplishments of that command.
The change of responsibility ceremony commemorates the symbolic relinquishment of responsibility from one senior noncommissioned officer to another by passing the organizational colors. This ceremony reinforces noncommissioned officer authority in the Army and highlights their support to the chain of command.
INSCOM executes mission command of operational intelligence and security forces; conduct and synchronize world-wide multidiscipline and all-source intelligence and security operations; deliver linguist support, intelligence related advanced skills training, acquisition support, logistics, communications, and other specialized capabilities in support of Army, Joint, and Coalition Commands.
