As temperatures begin warming up at Fort Benning, it can mean only one thing: It's change of command season.
First up — the 92nd Military Police Battalion.
Lt. Col. Dennis M. Zink will assume command of the MPs from Col. Leonard A. Crosby at 9 a.m. Wednesday on York Field.
Zink’s military and civilian education includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Nebraska, a Master’s Degree in International Relations from Webster University, a Military Master’s Degree in National Security Strategy from the Combined Arms College and the Army Strategist Course.
His most recent assignment was as the Director of Emergency Services for U.S. Army Garrison Benelux (Belgium, Netherlands and Luxemburg).
Zink and his wife Lisa are the parents of three boys. Their oldest son, Spc. Matt Zink, is a military policeman currently serving with the 18th Military Police Brigade in Stuttgart, Germany. Their other two sons, Joshua and Tristan, are in high school and middle school, respectively, and live with them on Fort Benning.
No word yet on Crosby's next assignment.
