Change of Command

We had to hurry back to Campbell after Thanksgiving to prepare for Monday. On 30 November, Bryan took command of Alpha Battery, 4th Battalion, 320th Field Artillery Regiment. Our friend, Danny, had been in command of Alpha Battery so it was fun to share the ceremony with him, Kelly & Emily. After the ceremony, we had a small reception before Bryan had to return to work. The battery went out into the field for a 2 week training exercise the next day so he had no choice but to dive right in!
Right after the ceremony


Kelly & I coordinated without even trying!


Being welcomed by the soldiers


The HUGE cake that the soldiers easily devoured!


The closest thing we've had to a good family picture lately - therefore it's our Christmas card!
