1/1 MARINES CHANGE OF COMMAND
On 13 June 2013 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 Michael J. Targos  relinquished command of the battalion to Lieutenant Colonel Lance A. Jackola.

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 San Diego Marine Band prior to the beginning of the ceremony.  

Photographs follow the sequence of events in image # 19, 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 Christopher Reed 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 Targos was called front & center where he was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal and formally retired from the Marine Corps after 21 years of service.

After image 105, Marines and guests greet and offer congratulations prior to leaving for the reception.

Once again, you have captured the pomp and tradition of a changing of Command. Great photos, Colonel.  Great job. I thought the old boy in Pic 121 should have been in charge of the entire affair.
