This photo brings back memories for me. This is the hanger Ron's unit marched into when he arrived home from Iraq (almost 3 years ago) after being gone for over a year. I remember that day like it was yesterday.
Passing The Guidon
Passing The Guidon: An Army unit conducts a change-of-command ceremony whenever a new commander takes charge. The central rite of this ceremony is the passing of the unit guidon from the outgoing commander to the incoming commander. By taking the guidon, the new commander signals his selfless commitment to the traditions, values, and soldiers that the guidon represents.
