Anacortes residents in ‘change of command’

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.”

About Photographer Steve Berentson

A fourth generation Skagit County native who was moved kicking and screaming from this island community in 1960. I finally reclaimed an Anacortes address in 1980, and I have been in constant celebration of my return since that time. Many of us who call Anacortes home love Fidalgo Island for its natural assets: among them are rugged beaches, pristine lakes, thousands of acres of forestland and some awesome views of the Skagit Valley and surrounding islands. Another element of my love affair with this community is its people, both natives and immigrants. They will “star” in many of my journal entries.
