by Larry Coffey - Rear Adm. Rebecca McCormick-Boyle relieved Capt. Gail Hathaway as commander of the Navy Medicine Education and Training Command during a combined change of command and retirement ceremony June 27 at the Army Medical Department Museum amphitheater at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston.

The Navy ship's bell rang out as local commanders and commanding officers from across all five military services were announced upon their arrival.

Eight strikes of the bell, followed by, "U.S. Army North, arriving, " announced Lt. Gen. Perry L. Wiggins, commander of U.S. Army North and senior Army commander of JBSA-Fort Sam Houston and JBSA-Camp Bullis. Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert D. LaBrutta, 502nd Air Base Wing and JBSA commander, was announced with six bells, followed by "Joint Base San Antonio, arriving."

Wiggins and LaBrutta were two of more than 175 leaders from the military and local communities gathered for a time-honored military tradition with a nautical theme.

After welcoming the guests, Hathaway introduced the change of command's presiding officer, Rear Adm. C. Forrest Faison, the U.S. Navy deputy surgeon general. Hathaway followed Faison's comments with her personal remarks and reading of her orders.

"I am extremely proud of this command - the people who do the heavy lifting every day - and the entire Navy Medicine Education and Training enterprise, " Hathaway said. "They have continued to just get the job done despite the roadblocks. It was said once, 'to be successful, you have to get up one more time than you fall.' No matter the setbacks, despite the lack of staff and despite being in three locations, this command just kept getting back up, dusting itself off and being successful."
