Brilakis, relinquishes command to Lt. Gen. Robert F. Hedelund at Naval Support Activity Hampton Roads, Virginia, July 3, 2019. The change of command is a time-honored tradition where all responsibilities and authority are ceremoniously passed from one commander to another. MARFORCOM is one of three major Marine Corps commands, along with U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Pacific and U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Reserve, which generates operating forces to support Unified or Joint Task Force Commanders.
