To say retirement is a time to kick back and relax, has not known what it takes to command a detachment such as MCL Det 1267. To go back in our history, the Detachments last Change of Command (CoC) was between Out going, 2 consecutive terms, Commandant Reggie Nealy and incoming Commandant Nathan Pratt. Working together the transition was seamless and relatively un-eventful.
Marine Nathan Pratt stepped up and accepted the position as Commandant in 2018, again in 2019, and in the face of a national pandemic, remained "in-charge" for a 3rd consecutive term.
On May 17th, 2021 Senior Vice Commandant Bill Ward accepted the position/ promotion to command Detachment 1267 as Commandant. In the photo above, outgoing Commandant Pratt, hand the Detachment Colors to incoming Commandant Ward.
