Get Your War On Today at Los Alamitos or This Weekend at Seal Beach
|Maj. Gen. John S. Harrel|
Major General John S. Harrel, commanding general of the California Army National Guard's 40th Infantry Division since August 2007, is transferring command to Brigadier General Scott W. Johnson during what is billed as a "rare and impressive event." Troops, family, veterans, dignitaries and the general public will be there.
Harrel, whose National Guard lieutenant son is currently deployed overseas, is assuming command of the California Army National Guard.
The free tours open at 10 a.m. and close at 2:30 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday. The base is at 800 Seal Beach Boulevard, but no public access is available through the main gate. Instead you must pass through the Liberty Gate, which is on Seal Beach Boulevard an eighth of a mile south of the Pacific Coast Highway intersection.
