Cmdr. Cameron Geertsema receives Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (NMCB) 5's Command colors from Cmdr. Peter Maculan during the battalion's change of command ceremony. Geertsema relieved Maculan as the commanding officer during a ceremony on Camp Shields. The passing of the command colors is a tradition observed by Seabee battalions during their change of commands. When the new commanding officer receives
the colors, it is the point at which all command responsibilities have been transferred to the new commanding officer. NMCB 5 is currently supporting Navy and joint forces throughout the U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM). (U.S.
