Kara Soar Base, Iraq – Artillerymen from Battery C, 1st Battalion 320th Field Artillery conducted a change of command ceremony at the Kara Soar Base, Iraq, July 25, 2016.

A change of command is a military tradition that represents a formal transfer of authority and responsibility for a unit from one commander to another. The passing of colors from an outgoing commander to an incoming one signifies the unit and its soldiers is never without official leadership, a continuation of trust, and also signifies an allegiance of soldiers to their unit’s commander.
