    NAVAL BASE GUAM – A native of Modesto, California, raised in Australia, Philippines and Japan, is the newest commanding Officer of an Independence variant littoral combat ship.

    Cmdr. Brian Bungay became the commanding officer of USS Jackson (LCS 6) Blue Crew, during a change of command ceremony, Sept., 10.

    As commanding officer, Bungay maintains absolute authority and responsibility to ensure the safe handling of Jackson and the safety, well-being and proficiency of the crew.

    “It is my absolute honor to serve alongside the best crew in the Navy today, the men and women of USS Jackson," said Bungay.

    Prior to Jackson, Bungay served as the executive officer aboard Jackson.
