CECOM Flag Unfurled

The CECOM flag is now at Aberdeen Proving Ground!

MG Strong and CSM Johnson uncase the CECOM flag, Friday 10/22/2010.

A few weeks ago, we talked about the flag casing ceremony.   Last Friday, MG Strong presided over the CECOM flag uncasing.  The Commanding General stated that this event marked:

“…not only our new presence here, but also the continuity of mission, of vision, of people and purpose of the United States Army Communications-Electronics Command.”

The LRC color guard walks through the courtyard to the ceremony.

The formal ceremony took place in the courtyard at the newly completed phase 1 campus.  This is the first time that the CECOM flag was unfurled since its casing at Fort Monmouth, and signifies a new chapter in CECOM history.

MG Strong speaks at the ceremony.

The event had approximately 500 people in attendance, including retired commanders, active duty prior commanders, CECOM civilians and military from other locations, and community leaders and members.

CSM Linza Chapman, Fort Monmouth Garrison, presents a photo of the Johnson Gates and the ceremonial last round from the casing ceremony to MG Strong.
