USCGC Campbell to change command

The crew of U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Campbell is scheduled to hold a change of command ceremony on Saturday, March 8th, in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA.

Cmdr. Mark A. McDonnell will be relieving Capt. Michael F. Nasitka as the Commanding Officer of Coast Guard Cutter Campbell.

The change of command ceremony will take place at Coast Guard Moorings at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard Gate 1, which is located in Kittery, Maine at intersection of Wentworth and Walker streets.

The Change of Command Ceremony is a time-honored military tradition. It is a formal ritual conducted before the assembled company of the command. It conveys to officers and enlisted personnel of the cutter that although the authority of command is relinquished by one person and assumed by another, it is still maintained without interruption.

The Coast Guard Cutter Campbell (WMEC-909) is a 270-foot medium endurance cutter homeported in Portsmouth, NH.
