3rd Brigade Combat Team public affairs

The 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division continues to nurture its relationship with Comanche II Village.

During a town hall meeting and ice cream social July 20, the community mayor and community life noncommissioned officer met at the Comanche Youth Development Center to inform and engage the residents of Comanche II Village.

Representatives from 3rd Brigade Combat Team, including Col. Douglas Crissman, the brigade's commander, attended the meeting to maintain relations and gather information concerning the health and welfare of community members and their homes.

"Residents are glad for the commander's involvement," said Debbie Jarzynkowski, the Comanche II Village mayor. "They want a leader that is willing to listen and he will take care of our soldiers. It's all about being a part of a team."

At the community's first town hall meeting, in April, families raised concern about vehicles speeding through the neighborhoods and the overall safety of the area.

Since then, the military police department placed a digital speed limit sign and soldiers conduct courtesy patrols through the area while on staff duty at the brigade's headquarters.

Jarzynkowski said the added help has been effective.

"The radar just came out and the beautification is a work in progress. Having that extra patrol is nice, too," she said.
