Relief and appointment of Inchon regiment sergeants major

Sergeant Maj. James Cully, left, outgoing sergeant major, 1st Marine Regiment, passes his noncommissioned officer sword to Col. Peter Baumgarten, commanding officer, 1st Marines, during a relief and appointment ceremony aboard Camp Pendleton, Calif., Feb. 7, 2014. Relief and appointment ceremonies are one of the many traditions upheld in the Marine Corps today, which involves the passing of the noncommissioned officer sword from the outgoing sergeant major to the incoming. The passing of the sword signifies the transfer of responsibilities and accountability from one senior enlisted Marine to another.
