In ceremony after ceremony, a wave of Stetsons filled the bleachers to see five battalions within 1st Cavalry Division's 3rd Brigade Combat Team change command.

Outgoing battalion commanders talked about their most favorable memories and the lessons learned during their command, with the occasional tip for their successors.
