445th Transportation Company Change of Command Ceremony in Waterloo

WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A new commander is coming to the Army Reserve company in Waterloo. 

First Lieutenant Douglas Rustan, Commander of the 445th Transportation Company, will relinquish command to Major Travis Smith, Saturday, January 10th at 1:00 p.m. at the Army Reserve building .

Colonel Thomas Jones, Commander of the 649th Regional Support Group, will preside over the ceremony.      

The Change of Command ceremony symbolizes the continuation of leadership and unit identity despite the change in individual authority; it also represents the transfer of power from one individual to another. Passing the ceremonial flag from the old commander to the new commander physically represents this transfer.
