MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – The Marines of Military Police Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 17, 1st Marine Logistics Group, conducted a change of command ceremony here, June 20, in which Capt. Emmanuel T. Carper relinquished command to Capt. Kyle E. Larish.
The ceremony included the passing of the unit colors from the outgoing commander to the incoming commander. Afterward, each commander gave remarks to the service members, family and friends in attendance.
“It was a great tour with a fantastic group of Marines,” said Carper, 32, from Columbia, S.C. “We had worldwide deployments fighting both pirates and insurgents.”
For Larish, taking on the role of company commander is a big step that he said he is excited to take.
“It’s an exciting time for me to be here,” said Larish, 29, from West Seneca, N.Y. “I’m real fortunate to have this opportunity. There are only nine MP companies in the Marine Corps, and to have one of these, I am real fortunate.”
