Thomas Ciampolillo, the battalion sergeant major (middle, right) after assuming command of the New York Army National Guard battalion during a change-of-command ceremony here Sept. 8. During the ceremony, Col. James Pabis, the commander of the 153rd Troop Command (left), passed the colors from outgoing commander Lt. Col. Arthur Zegers (right) to Fowler, signifying the change of responsibility and authority for the battalion from one commander to another. Traditionally the unit’s colors marked the location of the commander on the battlefield, and the ceremony allowed the Soldiers to know who their commander was.
