There's new leadership at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.
A change of command ceremony was held Thursday where Colonel Douglas Denn assumed control of the base in Craven County.
Denn takes over for outgoing Colonel Francis Bottorff who took command in July of 2006. Bettor saw base headquarters go up in flames in 2007, but has improved the quality of life on base through many projects.
Colonel Denn says he's excited to carry on the great work of his predecessor.
Bottorff is taking a position at Marine Corps Installations East at Camp Lejeune.
