US Coast Guard Cutter Calhoun holds change-of-command ceremony
Fireman Apprentice Dylan Shira-Romero, a crew member assigned to U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Calhoun (WMSL 759), presents Capt. Timothy Sommella with the cutter’s first commissioning pennant after Sommella was relieved as commanding officer during Calhoun’s change-of-command ceremony, June 11, 2024, in North Charleston, South Carolina. The change-of-command ceremony is a time-honored military tradition that marks a transfer of total authority and responsibility from one individual to another.
