Stehle left the Marines, Sailors, and loved ones of the Regiment with these final messages.

“I’d just like to thank the battalions, the battalion command teams that are here,” said Stehle. He also stated to the command team“ You know you’ve done some extremely heavy lifting over these last couple years and you’ve never skipped a beat and never missed an opportunity to take advantage of training or deployment opportunities and it’s been fantastic.” To the incoming coming commanding officer, Col. Ryan E. Scott, Stehle added, “Ryan, the CLR team is ready for you and I have no doubt they’re going to continue to exceed expectations and do extremely well.”

CLR-1 provides logistics support to the 1st Marine Division beyond its organic capabilities in any environment and throughout the spectrum of conflict in order to allow the division to continue operations independent of any logistically driven operational pauses.
