Commander Kevin O’Brien has assumed command of the Littoral Combat Ship.

A new crew, known as the “Gold Crew” joins the new commander, replacing the inaugural “Sioux City Blue Crew” in manning the ship.

Barbara Sloniker of the Siouxland Chamber of Commerce attended the ceremony at the Naval Station in Mayport, Florida this (Friday) morning where Commander Randy Malone relinquished his command of the Blue Crew to Commander Chavius Lewis

OC………..the U.S.S. Sioux City. :17

 

Sloniker says there is an immense feeling of pride with Sioux City’s association with the ship and crew:

A reception was held after the change of command with ship sponsor Mary Winnefeld.

Randy Malone had been the ship’s captain since it was commissioned last November at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
