1/1 MARINES CHANGE OF COMMAND
On 5 June 2015 at Camp Horno, on the Camp Pendleton Marine Base, in a Change of Command ceremony for 1/1 (1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division) Lieutenant Colonel Lance A. Jackola relinquished command of the battalion to Lieutenant Colonel Steven M. Sutey.

On the LZ (Landing Zone) above Camp Horno the Photographs begin with arrival of guests, Marines of the battalion waiting on roadside for orders to take their position on the parade deck, and a concert by the 1st Marine Division Band prior to the beginning of the ceremony.  

Photographs follow the sequence of events in image # 20, beginning with formation of the battalion staff and the Invocation by the Battalion Chaplain.

The passing of the Battalion's battle colors, delivered by Battalion Sergeant Major C. T. Nguyen (now Regimental SgtMajor, 5th Marines)  to the outgoing Commanding Officer, and in turn presented to the new Commander, symbolizes the formal transfer of command.

Immediately following the passing of colors, Lieutenant Colonel Jackola was ordered front & center where the was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal.

After image 102, Marines and guests greet and offer congratulations prior to leaving for the reception.

Colonel BB,

Another great job by you and your son. Both the videos and your still shots are perfect. I particularly liked seeing the photo of the 5th Marines CO, my old unit. In my day it was Colonel Tolson A. Smoak. We always thought these guys looked so old; now they all look so very Young! :-)

Thank you for all you do!

Semper Fi,

Bob

Having served with 1/1 as a young Lt with Alpha 3 in 1969 I enjoy following my old unit.  These pictures are terrific.

I think this was the third time I had to honor of attending a change of command at Camp Pendleton. The experience is humbling. To be around so many great men and women who are serving our country is unlike anything else I've ever done.
