Lieutenant Col. Patrick J. Keane, an East Meadow native, recently transferred his duties as commanding officer of 2nd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, to Lt. Col. Anthony J. Bango during a change of command ceremony aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, N.C., Jan. 9.

“Leaving this battalion is without question one the hardest things I have ever had to do. It is only made easier because I am handing it off to [Bango],” Keane said. “You are the right guy across every possible measure. I know this battalion will do extremely well under you.”
