Combat Logistics Battalion 22 welcomes new commander

20 Apr 2012 | Sgt. Justin J. Shemanski

After the ritualistic exchange of the organizational colors from one leader to another, Combat Logistics Battalion 22 welcomed a new commander during a change of command ceremony at Soifert Field aboard Camp Lejeune, N.C., April 18.

Lt. Col. Matthew B. Reuter, of Eerie, Pa., relinquished command of the battalion to Lt. Col. William P. Carroll, of Quantico, Va., after two years at the helm.

During his tenure with CLB-22, a subordinate command of 2nd Marine Logistics Group, which serves as the logistical asset for the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit, the battalion deployed for 10 months in support of Operation Unified Protector. The unit served in action in the vicinity of Libya during the revolution that began in February 2011 after civil unrest against slain dictator Moammar Gadhafi’s regime thrust the county into a civil war.

Reuter noted that his Marines and sailors deployed three months early, yet performed exceptionally while supporting air and ground assets throughout the theater of operation.

“When I took command I gave very clear guidance to the Marines; it was two words – high standards,” said Reuter, as he addressed the crowd gathered before him. “They consistently met or exceeded my expectations.”

Reuter will report to 2nd Marine Logistics Group Headquarters for a brief tour of duty with the G-3 Operations section before heading to Norfolk, Va., for top-level schooling in June.

Carroll assumes command of CLB-22 following his tenure as the Deputy G-3 and Current Operations officer for 2nd MLG (Forward) during a deployment to Afghanistan from August 2011 to February 2012.

“Marines, I am honored and grateful to stand before you,” Carroll said as he addressed the formations of troops gathered for the ceremony. “We will continue to provide the best support possible to the 22nd MEU and will be ready to go when called upon to deploy again.”

Carroll’s personal decorations include the Meritorious Service Medal with gold star in lieu of second award, the Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal with gold star in lieu of second award and the Combat Action Ribbon.
