CLB-5 moves forward with new commanding officer Lance Cpl. Jerrick J. Griffin

Lt. Col. Robert Meade, incoming commanding officer for Combat Logistics Battalion 5, Combat Logistics Regiment 1, 1st Marine Logistics Group, from Greenville, Tenn., speaks to the crowd during a change of command ceremony at Camp Pendleton, Calif., June 2. Meade assumed command of CLB-5. The battalion will deploy to Afghanistan next spring.

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - Marines with Combat Logistics Battalion 5, Combat Logistics Regiment 1, 1st Marine Logistics Group conducted a change of command ceremony here, June 2.

Lt. Col. Jeff L. Jarosz, from Chicago, passed the torch of command to Lt. Col. Robert T. Meade, from Greeneville, Tenn. The passing of the battalion colors from Jarosz to Meade symbolized the transfer of responsibilities from one commander to the next.

“In the two years I have been here, we have done so much,” said Jarosz, the outgoing commanding officer. “It’s been an honor and a privilege to serve with these Marines.”

CLB-5 was activated here in 2006 and has provided logistics support in Iraq and Afghanistan.

“This is an outstanding battalion,” said Meade, the incoming commanding officer. “I will continue to follow in the footsteps of [Lt. Col. Jarosz] and carry on the proud heritage of the battalion as we prepare for another deployment to Afghanistan.”

The unit will deploy to Helmand Province, Afghanistan, next spring. Meade hopes to do great things with the battalion.

“He really left me a great organization here,” said Meade. “I really look forward to continuing what CLB-5 is doing.”
