MARCORLOGCOM Holds change of Command Ceremony

18 Jul 2022 | By Rodney Bearman Marine Corps Logistics Command

Marine Corps Logistics Command (MARCORLOGCOM) held a change of command ceremony Monday, July 18 during which Maj. Gen. Joseph F. Shrader relinquished command to Maj. Gen. Keith D. Reventlow.  

Lt. Gen. Edward D. Banta, Deputy Commandant for Installations and Logistics, served as the reviewing officer for the ceremony that was conducted within a combat vehicle warehouse at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany, Ga.

The change of command ceremony is a military tradition that signifies a formal transfer of authority and responsibility for a unit from one officer to another.  Several hundred Marines, civilian-Marines, family and friends, and community partners attended the ceremony.

During the ceremony, Shrader spoke to the Marines and Civilian Marines of MARCORLOGCOM saying, “I want to thank you personally for your support, and your patience, and most importantly for being great Americans.” 

General Shrader took command of MARCORLOGCOM in June of 2018. 

Reflecting on his command time Shrader said, “I leave knowing LOGCOM is in a good place, my heart is full,” adding that “I am fulfilled, I hope you are too.”

General Shrader will next relocate to North Carolina to be close to his family before retiring from the Marine Corps later this year. 

Reventlow comes from Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) where he served as Commander, DLA Distribution. 

“It is hard to follow someone who has done such a tremendous job as Shrader has done”, said Reventlow. 

Reventlow served as the Chief of Staff for MARCORLOGCOM just 5 years ago.  “It is great to be back in Albany, and I look forward to getting back to work with the outstanding team here”, he added. 

Headquartered in Albany, Ga., MARCORLOGCOM provides globally responsive ground equipment inventory control and integrated operational-level logistics capabilities in order to maximize Marine Corps materiel readiness and sustainment.
