MCTP welcomes new leader

Mission Command Training Program Command Sgt. Maj. Joseph Wilson watches as incoming MCTP Commander Col. Bryan Babich accepts the colors from Combined Arms Center-Training Deputy Commanding General Brig. Gen. Charles Lombardo during the MCTP assumption of command ceremony July 23, 2021 at the Frontier Chapel, Fort Leavenworth, Kan. Lombardo said that MCTP is “not only driving change in the Army, but driving change in the Department of Defense and how we fight and win.” “We already know you're that perfect fit,” Lombardo said of Babich. Babich replaces COL Shane Morgan who is now the deputy commander for the 82nd Airborne Division, Fort Bragg, N.C. Babich said this was the third time he has been selected to take a job that Morgan was leaving. “It means the world to me to follow you in command,” Babich said.
