“For the last three years as garrison commander, Colonel Brian P. Foley has had a transformative impact on Fort Meade, helping to upgrade transportation infrastructure and modernize facilities across the installation, and importantly, helping to bolster the garrison's leadership in cyber defense,” Sarbanes said after the event. “His vision and his leadership will be greatly missed.”

Sarbanes said he is confident that Rickard is “up to the task” as garrison commander.

“Colonel Rickard is a distinguished Army commander who brings a wealth of management and leadership experience to his new position. I look forward to seeing continued growth and prosperity at Fort Meade under his command.”
