FORT KNOX — The U.S. Army Accessions Support Brigade conducted a change of command ceremony Friday at Sadowski Center.

Col. Mark A. Rado turned over command to Col. Brian M. Cavanaugh. Cavanaugh takes over the ASB after commanding the 8th Military Information Support Group (Airborne) at Fort Bragg, N.C.

Rado, who has served more than 10 years at Fort Knox in a variety of positions during his career, will stay at the post as he is being reassigned to Human Resources Command.

The ASB is the higher headquarters for the U.S. Army Mission Support Battalion at Fort Knox, the U.S. Army Parachute Team at Fort Bragg, N.C., and the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit at Fort Benning, Ga. The unit is the Army’s only brigade dedicated to marketing efforts in support of Recruiting Command and Cadet Command.

Just before Friday’s change of command, the Army’s second STEM vehicle was dedicated. The vehicle becomes one of 16 rolling displays designed to promote the Army. The semitrailer showcases the Army as a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
