Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay to hold change-of-command ceremony

MCKINLEYVILLE, Calif. — Coast Guard personnel are scheduled to host a change-of-command ceremony for Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay in McKinleyville Thursday.

Capt. Gregory T. Fuller is scheduled to relieve Capt. Arthur J. Snyder as commander of Coast Guard Sector Humboldt Bay in a change-of-command ceremony at 10 a.m.

Fuller is coming from Coast Guard and Department of Homeland Security Joint Task Force East in Colorado where he served as the senior Coast Guard advisor to the commander, and Snyder will transfer to the Coast Guard 11th District in Alameda, California, where he will serve as the chief of response.

Rear Adm. Todd A. Sokalzuk, Coast Guard 11th District commander, is scheduled to preside over the ceremony.

The change of command is a time-honored tradition aboard ships and shore commands. It represents a total transfer of responsibility, authority and accountability from one individual to another. The core of the event is the formal changing of command in the presence of the entire crew, leaving no doubt as to who has assumed the mantle of authority.
