Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, US Army Central hosts change of command ceremony

By Sgt. Victor Everhart | U.S. Army Central | March 03, 2017

March 3, 2017 -- Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, U.S. Army Central held a change of command ceremony March 3, here at Patton Park.

Lt. Col. James Dobrinska II relinquished command after two years and Lt. Col. Lindsay Matthews assumed command with the USARCENT Commanding General, Lt. Gen. Michael Garrett as the presiding officer.

During his command, Dobrinska focused on improving readiness by revamping the physical fitness program and increasing both weapons proficiency and medical readiness. This improved the physical fitness and overall readiness for Soldiers who are continually operating in the Middle East region.

“Simply he made the unit better,” said Garrett. “Thank you for your dedication and perseverance to our command.”

Matthews earned her commission from Villanova University and has held various assignments from platoon leader for 61st Chemical Company, 23rd Chemical Battalion to planner for U.S. Africa Command.

“Like many of us, she has experience with the region,” said Garrett. “She’s commanded in the headquarters atmosphere and recognizes the challenges of a headquarters command. We are looking forward to your contributions and I am expecting you to take us to the next level. We are very, very happy to have you as part of the team and welcome to USARCENT.”

“I’m really excited about the opportunity to command,” said Matthews. “I can’t stop smiling. This command is amazing. We have fantastic Soldiers, NCO’s and officers as well as civilians. I can’t wait to get started”
