61st District commander takes command
Brig. Gen. Mark Toy, commander of the Corps’ South Pacific Division, placed the Corps of Engineers flag into Gibb’s hands at the ceremony. In military tradition, passing the flag represents the transfer of command. The change of command ceremony today was held at the Community Center, Fort MacArthur, in San Pedro, California. Col. Kim Colloton relinquished command to Col. Kirk Gibbs during this traditional Army ceremony. Gibbs took command following an assignment as assistant deputy operations director within the National Military Command Center at the Pentagon. He is the 61st commander of the District. "To the employees of the District...," said Gibbs, " I will give you nothing less than my very best for the next three years, that is my commitment to you."
