US Coast Guard Atlantic Area holds change-of-command ceremony
US Coast Guard Vice Adm. Nathan Moore, center, who will soon assume duties as the new Atlantic Area commander, poses for a photo after being promoted from rear admiral, May 16, 2024, with his wife Susan, father Nathan, Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Linda Fagan, and Vice Adm. Kevin Lunday in Yorktown, Virginia. The change-of-command ceremony is a military tradition representing a formal transfer of authority and responsibility for a unit from one commanding or flag officer to another. The passing of colors, standards, or ensigns from an outgoing commander to an incoming one ensures that the unit and its members are never without official leadership, a continuation of trust.
