Presidio of Monterey Change of Command Ceremony
The change of command occurred on June 12 at Soldier Field, the Presidio of Monterey where COL Lawrence Brown relinquished command to COL Greg Ford. Thank you, COL Brown, for your steadfast leadership the past two years...welcome COL Ford to POM!
A change of command is a military tradition that represents a formal transfer of authority and responsibility for a unit from one commanding or flag officer to another. The passing of colors, standards, or ensigns from an outgoing commander to an incoming one ensures that the unit and its soldiers are never without official leadership, a continuation of trust, and also signifies an allegiance of soldiers to their unit's commander.

Fort Ord Reuse Authority (FORA) is a regional entity created by State law in 1994 following closure of the former Fort Ord military training base in 1992. FORA is charged with responsibility to plan, finance, manage and oversee conversion of the former military land for community reuse. When established, FORA was envisioned to “sunset” in 20 years under assumptions that certain goals and mandated conditions for reuse were achieved. Due to significant impacts beyond FORA’s direct control, such as an extended national recession, it became clear the originally anticipated goals could not be achieved as scheduled and legislation extended the life of FORA to 2020, again assuming that the mandated and anticipated regional goals could be achieved. The 2020 extension also required that FORA prepare a formal Transition Plan to assure that on-going legally mandated requirements would continue to be funded and addressed within the region.
