Transfer of Authority

This past Sunday marked a special transition for our battalion; the TOA, or Transfer of Authority. This ceremony officially signifies the change of responsibility for the general support aviation battalion mission from the 7-101st to the 2-135.

The heart of the ceremony is the Casing of the Colors for the departing unit, and the Uncasing of the Colors by the incoming unit. This completed our RIP/TOA (Replacement in Place/Transfer of Authority).

Pictured here is our Battalion Commander, LTC Chris Petty, and Command Sergeant Major, Douglas Imfeld, uncasing the colors.
