The change of command ceremony signifies a formal transfer of authority and responsibility for a unit from one officer to another. About 100 Marines, civilian-Marines, family and friends attended the ceremony that was held in a storage facility.
Col. Craig C. Clemans, Chief of Staff, Marine Corps Logistics Command, presided over the ceremony.
Steward will next begin a Skillbridge internship with Grace City Church, Albany, Ga., and is excited to remain in southwest Ga. with her family.
Manning comes from Marine Forces Pacific where he served as the Future Operations Branch Head, Future Operations Directorate, G3.
Welcome aboard Lt. Col. Manning, and fair winds and following seas Lt. Col. Steward!
