    Marines with Echo Battery, Battalion Landing Team, 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, stand in formation during a Change of Command ceremony at Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan, April 12, 2019. During the ceremony, Capt. Michael Bruce relinquished command to 1st Lt. Jessi Wieck – the battery is currently forward-deployed to Okinawa as the artillery support for BLT 1/4, the Ground Combat Element for the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit. Wieck, the first female to command a Marine artillery battery, is a native of Brooklyn, Iowa – she commissioned in January 2016 after graduating from University of Iowa in Iowa City. Bruce, a native of North Reading, Massachusetts, commissioned in 2010 after graduating from Northeastern University in Boston. The 31st MEU, the Marine Corps’ only continuously forward-deployed MEU, provides a flexible and lethal force ready to perform a wide range of military operations as the premier crisis response force in the Indo-Pacific region.
