FORT HOOD — The commander of the First Army Division West’s 120th Infantry Brigade passed the colors to his successor in a Wednesday morning ceremony.

Outgoing commander Col. Timothy Bush said he will “rest soundly” knowing the mission is taken care of as he bid farewell to the brigade during the

ceremony on Cameron Field.

He led the 120th for 24 months.

“I’ve been honored to walk among you and I will cherish your teamwork and friendship,” Bush told the brigade. “No brigade commander has ever been more blessed than I to lead such a talented group.”

He will become First Army’s director of operations at Rock Island, Ill.

Taking command of the brigade is Col. Daniel Hurlbut, who most recently served as operations chief of Division West for the past 12 months.

“We’re excited about taking command. We’re looking forward to the missions ahead,” Hurlbut said. “There’s a strong chance that our missions will expand in scope, so we’ve got a lot of work to do but it’s going to be fun.”
