"Protocol is something the military uses to show proper respect to senior leaders and civic leaders," said Donovan. "But protocol is much more than showing respect - it is about efficiency and doing something in a way that makes the most sense," he added.

On September 14, the 849th Mobility Augmentation Company, a Minnesota Army National Guard unit based in Litchfield, not only received its first female commander, but it also officially cased its colors, signifying its separation from the 682nd Engineer Battalion. With new colors and new leadership, the 849th has been restructured into Company B, 334th Brigade Engineer Battalion, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 34th Red Bull Infantry Division.
