FAIRBANKS, ALASKA — Col. Sidney Zemp has taken over as commander at Fort Wainwright, Interior Alaska’s largest military installation.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports that Zemp is new to Alaska and this will be his first time serving as a garrison commander. His duties include overseeing the services and training space used by 14,000 soldiers, civilians and military families.

The former tank commander is a veteran of Operation Desert Shield, Desert Storm and more recently Operation Iraqi Freedom. His last post was as assistant chief of staff for the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command, Fort Belvoir, Va.

Zemp said at a news conference Friday that he will make an assessment before discussing any specific plans for Fort Wainwright.
