Relief and Appointment ceremony brings new face to Combat Logistics Battalion 6

18 Apr 2012 | Cpl. Katherine M. Solano

The position of sergeant major of Combat Logistics Battalion 6, 2nd Marine Logistics Group was transferred from one Marine to another during a relief and appointment ceremony aboard Camp Lejeune, N.C., April 17.

Sgt. Maj.  Roger F. Griffith, of Tazewell, Va., received the Sword of Office from Sgt. Maj. Phillip A. Orellano, of Los Angeles, symbolizing the trust emplaced with the incoming senior enlisted advisor.

Orellano addressed his Marines and sailors during the ceremony, citing his appreciation for their hard work, especially during their recent deployment to Afghanistan.

“When I took the sword from the battalion commander, I told [everyone] I was here to work for you,” said Orellano.  “Throughout the entire time that I’ve been here, you all have demonstrated nothing but professionalism and good conduct.  My hat is off to you for a great deployment.”

The next step in Orellano’s career is a tour at Marine Corps Recruiting Station Los Angeles.

Griffith followed with a short speech, stating he looks forward to leading the Marines and sailors of CLB-6 “wherever we may go next.”

He arrived at the battalion following a tour with 2nd Marine Special Operations Battalion, U.S. Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command.
