Outgoing ADT commander Lt. Col. Greg Allison relinquished command to Lt. Col. David Boyle, of the Missouri National Guard.

“The ADT is a unique complement to direct action combat operations in the global war on terrorism,” said Boyle.

Transfer of authority from one command to another is a traditional event, rich with symbolism and heritage. The key to this ceremony is the passing of the guidon. The outgoing unit hands off the guidon to their Task Force commander, who then hands it off to the incoming commander, charging him with the responsibility of the unit.

“Long term, through our combined efforts, we hope to [afford opportunities for] the Afghan farmers and deny terrorists the fertile ground they've come to enjoy for recruiting, training, and support," Boyle said.
