Wolford bids farewell to CLB-2, welcomes Mull

7 Jul 2011 | Sgt. Justin J. Shemanski

Lt. Col. Brian N. Wolford stepped down and welcomed Lt. Col. Denise M. Mull as the new commander for Combat Logistics Battalion 2 during a change of command ceremony at Soifert Field, July 7.

Wolford took command of the battalion in June 2009 upon returning from Iraq, where he served as the ground operations officer for Multi-National Force-West, and subsequently led CLB-2 into the fight in Afghanistan in August 2010.

During their 7-month deployment in support of International Security Assistance Force operations, the Marines and sailors of the battalion participated in nearly 200 missions, and logged more than 300,000 miles as they traversed the unforgiving landscape of Helmand province – just a couple of the statistics a proud Wolford noted to the crowd who came to bid him farewell.

“We led quite a kinetic fight during our deployment in Helmand,” said Wolford, who has participated in nine deployments during his career.

“…And what you all did was nothing short of amazing.”

Wolford detailed the process in which the unit supported the ground forces in Afghanistan. From thousands of gallons of fuel to hundreds of tons of supplies delivered to outlaying patrol bases via ground and air transportation, the personnel of CLB-2 ensured the troops they supported didn’t have to worry about how they were going to sustain themselves.

“They will go to the ends of the earth for you,” concluded Wolford.

Mull, a native of Nogales, Ariz., joins the unit from United States Central Command in Tampa, Fla. She received her commission in 1993 and her personal decorations include the Bronze Star Medal, Defense Meritorious Service Medal and two Meritorious Service Medals.

“I’m very proud to be your future commander,” said Mull, as she addressed the Marines and sailors standing before her.
