The colors represent responsibility of the 303rd MEB mission and the welfare of the Soldiers. In this case, Command Sgt. Maj. Beau Tatsumura, transferred to the outgoing commander, Membrere, on to the senior commander, 9th MSC Commanding General Brig. Gen. Douglas Anderson, who then passed the colors to Dethlefs.
