Change of Command to be Held on Friday

Thursday, May 22, 2003
On Friday May 23, at the Coast Guard Recruit Training Center in Cape May, New Jersey, the Coast Guard Cutter Dependable will conduct its Change of Command Ceremony where Commander Rickey George will be formally relieved by Commander Michael Christian. The ceremony highlights the responsibility of command and clearly demonstrates the transfer of that responsibility from one Commanding Officer to the next. Captain Arthur Brooks, Chief of Staff, Coast Guard Atlantic Area will officiate the ceremony. In addition to being relieved as Commanding Officer, Commander Rickey George will also be celebrating his retirement ceremony. It is fitting that Commander George finishes his illustrious career in the same location where he began it over 30 years ago when he completed Basic Training in Cape May. Having risen through the ranks he has earned fifteen promotions during fifteen tours, commanded three different classes of vessels and has over 12 years of sea time.
