1/1 SERGEANT MAJOR RELIEF & APPOINTMENT
In a Relief & Appointment ceremony at Camp Pendleton, CA, on 3 April 2014, Sergeant Major Christopher R. Reed, USMC, of 1/1 (1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 1st Marine Division) was relieved by Sergeant Major Chuong T. Nguyen, USMC.

These images begin just prior to the Pre-Parade concert by 1st Marine Division Band, with the Marines & Sailors of 1/1 forming off the parade deck awaiting Adjutant's Call.

The images of the ceremony are presented in the order of the Sequence of Events as shown in Frame # 12.
                                                    
The passing of the NCO sword symbolizes the relief and appointment when the outgoing Sergeant Major surrenders the sword to the Battalion Commander, Lieutenant Colonel Lance Jackola, USMC,  who in turn delivers the sword to the new Sergeant Major.

Following the Relief & Appointment, the ceremony concluded with the retirement of Sergeant Major Reed.

Marines are always impressive.  At their best is in a fire fight.
Second best on the parade field.

BB, You take great photos. It warms my heart to see the troops on parade in service uniforms. Green and khaki are a great combination. Semper fi. Bob Brockish, C/1/1 Korea

Bob & Frank, I hoped some of our thinning ranks of C/1/1 Korea Marines would visit the album.  You will note I'm sure, that I got a shot of Charlie CO & Guidon as they approached the reviewing stand, easy to spot of course since Charlie Co. always last in a 1/1 "Pass In Review."  Semper Fi, BB, C/1/1 Korea.
