Army Brig. Gen. Michael C. Flowers will relinquish command of the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command Friday at 10 a.m. during a ceremony that will be officiated by Adm. Timothy J. Keating, commander of U.S. Pacific Command, according to a JPAC release.
Rear Adm. Donna Crisp will assume command. She will be the first two-star flag officer as well as the first female to take the position since the creation of JPAC in 2003. Previous commanders were one-star flag officers.
This assignment to Hawaii is the fourth for Crisp during her more than 30 years of service. She was most recently stationed in Hawaii with the Pacific Fleet between 2002 and 2004 the release said.
