Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf holds change of command
U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Timothy Brown, salutes the Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf's crew as the Coast Guard Cutter Bertholf's change of command ceremony begins in Kodiak, Alaska, June 12, 2023. A change of command ceremony marks a transfer of total responsibility and authority from one individual to another, and it is a time-honored tradition to formally demonstrate the continuity of authority within a command conducted before the assembled crew and esteemed guests and dignitaries.
