The Air Force Change of Command is a ceremony that dates back to the 18th Century. Organizational flags were developed with color arrangements and symbols unique to each particular unit. When a change of command takes place, the flags are passed to the individual assuming command in the presence of the entire unit. For Col Keith Crawford and Col Shawn Cochran of the 449th Air Expeditionary Group, the time has come. ~SSgt Jonathan Guzman U.S Air Force Rammstein United States Air Force U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) 435th Air Expeditionary Wing Combined Joint Task Force-Horn of Africa AFN Europe AFN Kaiserslautern Air Force Television Pentagon Defense Media Activity DVIDSHUB
