Farewell Dinner

Honoring Colonel Joseph Kuchan Story & Photography by Tony Centonze A farewell dinner was held recently at Cole Park Commons for Colonel Joseph Kuchan, who is leaving his post after a 2-year stint as Fort Campbell's Garrison Commander. The Garrison Commander oversees a team of approximately 2,000, mostly civilian employees, who work hard each day to make sure that the “city” of Beverly Rucker & Pat Appelman Christina & John Watson Fort Campbell functions as it should. Colonel Kuchan made quite an impact during his time in that position. Deputy Garrison Commander, Jon Hunter took a moment to share his thoughts. “This farewell dinner was a wonderful opportunity for us to bring together the community partners that Col. Kuchan has worked closely with over the last two years,” Hunter said. “It was a great event at which we recognized these important partnerships that exist between the garrison and the community that surrounds us.” About 70 people were in attendance. The guest list was a who's who of local city and county leaders from Kentucky and Tennessee. “During his leadership, Colonel Kuchan did a great job of building on the strong bonds we have established with our surrounding communities,” Hunter said. “We are certainly going to miss him and Sarah.” Valerie Hunter-Kelly & Mark Kelly
