“A change of command is a military tradition that represents a formal transfer of authority and responsibility for a unit from one commanding or flag officer to another.”
The other week, I was able to attend our squadron’s COC. The Commander (Skipper) passed his power down to the Executive Officer (XO), both whom I’ve personally gotten to know, and hands down, couldn’t have asked for a better pair of leaders for my husband and I to look up to.
With the military dealing with budget cuts and so forth, we don’t have a clear idea of what to expect during this transition. All we know is that we’re in good hands with the new CO and XO.
Here are some of shots from the ceremony.
