LITTLE CREEK, Va (NNS) -- Cmdr. Jon Rodgers relieved Commanding Officer Cmdr. Sean Moriarty of Mobile Security Squadron 6 (MOBSECRON 6) during a change of command ceremony Nov. 16.

"This has been the most rewarding tour of my career. The men and women of Mobile Security Squadron 6 are some of the finest the Navy has to offer. We are an active and relevant participant in the global war on terror[ism]. There is no other job as relevant or as rewarding," said Moriarty.

Rodgers enlisted in the Navy as a nuclear field technician where he earned a Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps Scholarship. He was commissioned in 1990 as a surface warfare officer upon graduating from Cornell University with a bachelor's degree in agriculture engineering technologies.

Rodgers has attended several colleges including Naval War College in Newport, R.I. with a Masters of Art in National Security Strategy. He graduated with honors from the Industrial College of the Armed Forces earning a Masters of Science in National Resource Strategy.

MOBSECRON 6 is part of Navy Expeditionary Combat Command (NECC), a global force provider of adaptive force packages of expeditionary capabilities to joint warfighting commanders. NECC serves as a single manning functional command to centrally manage the current and future readiness, resources, manning, training and equipping of the Navy Expeditionary Force.
