"It seems like I just stood up here and said 'This is awesome.'" Col. Ed F. Buck Jr. said from the podium set up on the basketball court of the Wiesbaden Fitness Center. "And here I am, 24 months later, and I can still say 'This. Is. Awesome.'"
Buck is referring to his time leading the 2nd Signal Brigade, which came to an official end in a Change of Command ceremony on June 30th, when command of the brigade was assumed by Col. C. Jeff Worthington.Published July 8, 2016
