The 1st Brigade Combat Team welcomed new commander last week

 

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – The 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault) held a change of command ceremony on Friday July 22nd, 2011.  Col. Andrew P. Poppas relinquished command to Col. Joseph P. McGee before the entire brigade.

The change of command ceremony is rooted in military history dating back to the 18th century during the reign of Frederick the Great of Prussia. At that time, organizational flags were developed with color arrangements and symbols unique to each particular unit. To this flag and its  commander, the soldiers of the unit would dedicate their loyalty and trust. When a change of command takes place, the flag is taken from the outgoing commander and then passed to the individual assuming the command by their superior officer. This gesture is done in front of the unit so that all could see and witness their new leader assuming his dutiful position. He who holds the flag also holds the soldier’s allegiance. This symbolic tradition has survived throughout military history.
