Many naval aviators choose to make their home in Anacortes. On Thursday two city residents were key players in a traditional “change of command” ceremony at nearby Whidbey Island Naval Air Station. USN Cdr. Hunter Bankart (2nd from right) was relieved of command of Electronic Attack Squadron 138 by USN Cdr. Matthew Mulcahey (third from right). Bankart’s new orders take him to the East Coast. Guest speaker at the event was USN Capt. Darryl Walker (right), currently serving an assignment at the Pentagon in Washington, D.C. Others pictured here include USN Chaplain Andrew Hayler (left) and Cmnd. Master Chief Matthew Miesle (2nd from left). Note: See more photos below “In the News.”
