COLCHESTER, Vt. -

A special ceremony was held a Camp Johnson honoring the work of one man and welcoming another.

Saturday was the change of responsibility ceremony for the Vermont National Guard. Command Sgt. Maj. Forest Glodgett has led the Guard since 2011. Taking over leadership is Joseph P. Quick. Over 100 people attended the ceremony, including special guests from Macedonia who served with Sgt. Maj. Glodgett in Afghanistan.

"I think what this emphasizes is the personal and professional relationships between Macedonia and Vermont," said Col. Dan Pipes with Vermont National Guard. "Particularly it's good to have senior level officials come and maintain those ties."

The Guard says during his tenure, Glodgett provided critical input and guidance for the Vermont National Guard through meetings, conferences, information gathering and field observation. He coordinated with the command sergeant major of the Army National Guard and major army commands, and served on various service councils and boards at the state and national level. Command Sgt. Quick will now take on those roles.
