Major Sarah K. Pangelinan assumes command of the 752nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron (AMXS) from Colonel James L. Hartle, commander of the 452nd Maintenance Group, during her formal assumption of command ceremony held at March Air Reserve Base, California on January 22, 2017.

The passing of the guidon is a traditional ceremony signifying the passing of the duties and responsibilities to the new commander.

It is a time honored tradition and the  passing of colors, standards, or ensigns from an outgoing commander to an incoming one ensures that the unit and its troops are never without official leadership. It signifies a continuation of trust, and also forges an allegiance of between airman and their unit's commander.
