U.S. NAVIOCOM YOKOSUKA JAPAN Change of Command

Very proud that Commander Michael C. Elliot (my Ops officer when I was CO of NSGA Yokosuka) assumes command of our former command today on Friday, 19 July.  He relieves Commander Mike Douglas.  Another former JO, LCDR Andrew T. Reeves is the Executive Officer.  A former PO3 has returned as the Command Master Chief - Cedric Rawlinson.  What an awesome opportunity for all involved.  Looking forward to EXTRAORDINARY things from this team.  BZ!!

CDR Mike Douglas did an outstanding job as a CO and we expect more out of him in the future.

Where is CDR Douglas headed next? We were stationed together in Key West when he was an Ensign and again at CID when he was XO.

It just hit me that it was our very proud day 6 years ago! Six years since the CoC in Yokosuka!!! IMagine that!

Gosh how time passes by quickly!

Japan is a great place and I wish the Elliot family all the best! I urge them to get out and about, outside the gates that is, and to enjoy every minute of their stay, that they will find will pass by too quickly. Japan is an amazing place! A once in a life time experience.

Kind regards,

Anneli

CDR Elliot will be an INCREDIBLE Commanding Officer! There is no one more dedicated to the mission, his Sailors or our community!
