Raiders welcome new commander,
During a sweltering morning ceremony, Col. James Crider bid farewell to 1st Armor Brigade Combat Team and passed off command to a new leader during a ceremony Aug. 28 on Cottrell Field.After almost 31 months in command, Crider said he was sad to leave.“The time in command goes by very quickly,” Crider said. “We seem to be very busy day-to-day, but suddenly you look up and somebody is telling you you have to go. You never feel like you’ve completed because the mission doesn’t ever really come to an end.”
