Wallace departs, Brodie assumes command of the 31st MEU
Colonel Robert Brodie, newly appointed commander of the 31st Marine Expeditionary Unit, accepts the unit guidon from Col. Tye R. Wallace during a change of command ceremony at Camp Hansen, Okinawa, Japan, June 13, 2018. Brodie assumed command after recently serving at 1st Air Force, 601st Air Operations Center. Wallace, a graduate of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, led the 31st MEU through four deployments during his tenure, including the historic operational MEU deployment featuring the F-35B Lightning II fighter jet earlier in 2018. The 31st MEU, the Marine Corps' only continuously forward-deployed MEU, provides a flexible force ready to perform a wide-range of military operations.
