Regional leaders and Battalion Staff welcomed Lt. Col. Eggleston to the unit.

FORT KNOX, Ky. — On Saturday, June 9th Lt. Col. Reginald T. Eggleston officially took command of the 4-413th (SROTC) Battalion. During an intimate ceremony held in Palma Hall, Lt. Col.

Outgoing commander, Maj. Naparstek, kept his remarks brief, but acknowledging he had been surrounded by people fully supporting the unit’s mission which helped in achieving its goals. 

Lt. Col. Eggleston followed by expressing his anticipation of working with the unit, charging everyone with the mindset of optimism and ultimate success.

Lt. Col. Eggleston accepts his new position as Commander of the 4-413th (SROTC) Battalion. After Maj. Matt Naparstek relinquished his command, Brigade Commander Col. Jens Hansen handed the battalion colors and control of the 4-413th (SROTC) Battalion to Lt. Col. Reginald Eggleston.

 

The 4-413th (SROTC)’s mission is to provide adjunct faculty to the many Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) programs across the United States, specifically schools east of the Mississippi River. This extends a challenge, being a unit that is not in any one particular spot. Although the headquarters team is located centrally at Fort Knox, KY, the vast majority of the 177 personnel reside across 27 states, covering over 91 colleges and universities.is to provide adjunct faculty to the many Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) programs across the United States, specifically schools east of the Mississippi River.
