The Corpus Christi Army Depot hosted a big change of command ceremony on Thursday.

CCAD announced that Col. Christopher B. Carlile, commander of the Corpus Christi Army Depot, was chosen to serve at the Army Material Command Headquarters as a Special Assistant of Organic Industrial Operations, effective Thursday.

The executive authority of CCAD will go to Mr. William Braddy, who is the CCAD Deputy Commander for Production Operations until commander Col. Garner Pogue, III, takes over in July.

Col. Carlile said Thursday's change of command was a bittersweet moment.
