    CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. - The Marines and sailors of Combat Logistics Battalion 6, Combat Logistics Regiment 2, 2nd Marine Logistics Group welcomed their new commanding officer, Lt. Col. Matthew Hakola, during a change of command ceremony here, June 12.

    Hakola accepted the battalion colors from Lt. Col. Brian Mullery, the outgoing commanding officer of CLB-6, before addressing the men and women under his command.

    He thanked the battalion’s service members for their hard work over the last several years, and congratulated them for their performance during their recent deployment to Afghanistan.

    “To the Marines and sailors of CLB-6, to start off I want to say you guys have done an awesome job,” said Hakola. “I’m extremely happy to be back here at Camp Lejeune … I couldn’t have asked to be coming to a better unit or to receive a better turn over.”

    Prior to assuming command of CLB-6, Hakola deployed to Special Operations Command Europe, where he served as the officer in charge for the European Engagement Group.

    Hakola complemented Mullery for the outstanding reputation of the battalion during his tenure. Mullery assumed command of CLB-6 in June 2012 and led the unit during its most recent deployment.

    “These men and women have chosen to do these jobs,” said Mullery. “While we were in Afghanistan, they did 50 combat logistics patrols … they delivered more than one million pounds of mail. They produced more than nine million gallons of water. They pumped more than 700,000 gallons of fuel.”

    “It’s what the young men and women of our nation are willing to do and have done every day,” he continued. “Every single individual did their job.”
