ARMEDCOM bids farewell to outgoing commander; welcomes new leadership
U.S. Army Reserve Maj. Gen. Mary E. Link, outgoing commanding general of Army Reserve Medical Command, departs the C. W. Bill Young Armed Forces Center, under a large American flag, hoisted by Pinellas Park Fire Station 35, following her Change of Command ceremony on March 31, 2019. Link relinquished command to Maj. Gen. Jonathan Woodson, the incoming commanding general for ARMEDCOM, during the ceremony. The change of command ceremony symbolizes the continuation of leadership and unit identity despite the change of individual authority. It also represents the transfer of power from one leader to another; passing the ceremonial flag from outgoing to incoming commander is a physical representation of that transfer.
