Vice Adm. Mary Jackson, former commander of Navy Region Southeast, officially assumed the role of commander of the Navy Installations Command during a change-of-command ceremony held Friday in Washington.

The service branch said Friday Jackson succeeded Vice Adm. Dixon Smith, who served as the fifth CNIC and managed 71 Navy installations under 11 regions that include transmitter sites, missile ranges, schools, naval magazines and fuel storage sites.

She previously commanded the USS McFaul guided missile destroyer, which served as the flagship for the Combined Task Force Iraqi Maritime and Destroyer Squadron 50 in the Arabian Gulf and the North Arabian Sea.

Jackson also held various positions at the U.S. Naval Academy, U.S. Joint Forces Command, Naval Surface Forces, Atlantic Fleet, Navy Personnel Command and Naval Station Norfolk.
