Change of Command

Today was Change of Command for Chris. For those of you unfamiliar, it is a "passing of the baton" ceremony from the current company commander to the new company commander. Chris took over Hotel Company, so it was a pretty exciting day - and the beginning of a fun, new adventure for him.... as Hotel Company Commander!!
His new office (think I need to get some pictures of me and the boys on that desk)!!! HOWEVER, I was very pleased to see the clorox wipes on his desk .... that he said he DID use!! I'm so proud!
Hotel Company drill instructors....
Chris is on the left and the outgoing company commander (Jon Peterson) is on the right
After the flag was passed (see video below) - Jon handing over the company to Chris
Chris giving his little "speech"
Family picture .... the boys did really good!!! It was actually really cute, b/c Chris and Jake will salute each other at home, but today when Jake saw anyone salute .... he automatically saluted! It was hilarious - I wasn't able to get video, b/c I wasn't expecting that .... but it was definitely cute!
Here is the "passing of the company flag" from outgoing commander to incoming commander...
