Swamp Foxes Change Command aboard USS Harry S. Truman

USS HARRY S. TRUMAN

American aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75) hosted a change of command ceremony of the “Swamp Foxes” of Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron 74 on Dec. 21.

Cmdr. Matt Boren, who previously served as HSM-74’s executive officer, took over as commanding officer, relieving Cmdr. Jim Miller, who has commanded HSM-74 since Sept. 29, 2012.

“We’ve done great things tactically and professionally on this carrier. We won the Battle E award, among several other. We’re the only airborne anti-submarine warfare asset and we provide a lot of the recognized maritime picture for the strike group,”said Miller.

Cmdr. Boren commented: “I’ve been with the squadron for the last 15 months, including all the workups. We’re halfway into deployment and I think everyone knows their battle rhythm and is comfortable with our day-to-day operations. We’re deployed to the Arabian Gulf and I couldn’t think of a better time to take command. I think the squadron is set up to have continued success.”
