Headquarters Company, Combat Logistics Regiment 27, 2nd Marine Logistics Group, welcomed a new commanding officer during a ceremony aboard Camp Lejeune, N.C., March 23, 2011.

During the ceremony, Capt. Charles M. Hemcher, the outgoing commanding officer, was relieved by Capt. John D. Wilson.

 “I have big shoes to fill,” Wilson said. “[Captain Hemcher] did a great job and I hope I can do just as well.”

Wilson, who just returned from a joint service deployment with Combat Logistics Battalion 22, said he was glad to be back.

“It’s great to be back at Camp Lejeune and working with Marines,” he said.  “Those of you who have served with other services know that it’s a different experience.”

As Wilson takes the Headquarters Company reigns, Hemcher is moving on to another company within CLR-27.  Hemcher is now the commanding officer of Military Police Company.

“It was a pleasure working with Captain Hemcher,” said 1st Sgt. Lashaun L. Benjamin, the Headquarters Company first sergeant.  “I look forward to working with the new commanding officer, Captain Wilson.”
