I Stand Relieved - Change of Command, NAS Lemoore

Not many organizations have ceremonies with the flare that the military does.  A Change of Command is a miltary tradition that represents the transfer of responsibility and authority from one commanding officer to another.  Great symbolism is attached to each portion of the ceremony and it was a great day to be capturing those moments.

"I stand relieved...."
