Change of command ceremony held at Camp Lejeune

CAMP LEJEUNE, NC (WITN) - There's a new leader at one military base in the east.

Lieutenant General Brian Beaudreault has assumed command of the II Marine Expeditionary Force at Camp Lejeune.

The position was formerly held by Lieutenant General Robert Hedelund. Hedelund will begin his next position at U.S. Marine Corps
Forces Command in Norfolk, Virgina later this month.

Beaudreault recently served as the deputy commandant for Plans,
Policies, and Operations at the Pentagon.

He officially took his post during a change of command ceremony on base Thursday night.
