Guam - U.S. Naval Base Guam welcomed its new commanding officer today.  Captain Richard Wood II, who made his way to the island after recently serving at the Pentagon, will now oversee the many base projects underway, which was started during the term of outgoing commander Captain Scott Galbreaith.

Joint Region Marianas Commander Rear Admiral Paul Bushong recognized and presented an award to Captain Galbreaith for all his accomplishments during today's change of command ceremony.  "His commitment to the Navy, his support of the preservation and promotion of the Chamorro culture and heritage, including extraordinary efforts to make historic sites on Navy installations are available to the public," he said.

Captain Galbreaith is now headed to his next duty station in Washington, DC.
