Coast Guard Sector Mobile to Hold Change of Command

MOBILE, Ala. – On Friday, May 18th at 10:00 a.m., Captain James D. Bjostad will be relieved by Captain Edwin M. Stanton in a formal change of command ceremony at USCG Base Mobile on South Broad Street.

The change of command is a time-honored naval tradition where the current commanding officer is formally relieved in a ceremony with unit personnel, family, and friends in attendance. The ceremony highlights the responsibility of command and clearly demonstrates the transfer of that responsibility from one commanding officer to the next, while still maintaining the ability of the unit to operate successfully.
