FORT RITCHIE - Col. David E. Titus, who formally took command of the 1108th U.S. Army Signal Brigade Tuesday, will spend his first three months preparing to move the unit that is in charge of the "red phone" to its new home at Fort Detrick in Frederick, Md. That move will be one of the logistical challenges facing Army commanders as they wind down operations at Fort Ritchie, which will close in September. For Titus, preparing for the move won't be a new experience. In his last job as chief of the Plans and Operations Division of the U.S. Southern Command, Titus helped move the command headquarters from Panama to Miami.

On the day Tom DiGirolamo was admitted to the Maryland bar 17 years ago, he was told to remember four things - treat everyone well, be honest, help people and better yourself every day. When he was sworn in Friday as the new U.S. District Court magistrate judge in Western Maryland, DiGirolamo said he will continue to live by those rules. "This is an incredibly humbling experience," DiGirolamo said to a packed Washington County courtroom, filled with fellow attorneys, state and federal judges, family and friends.
