The oddest thing to me about the CD National Guard Commander being removed is...

... there is no new Commander named. Someone on FB asked me if there will be a change of command ceremony.

The simple answer is there can't be one. Why? Because there is no new commander named. That's what you have at a change of command ceremony. The outgoing commander ceremoniously hands a flag to the new commander and the deed is done.

We have no new commander here. The deputy will serve as acting commander simply on the basis of the chain of command, not because they have been named.
