C3F Holds Change of Command

Vice Adm. John Wade, prospective commander, U.S. 3rd Fleet (C3F), salutes sideboys during a change of command ceremony held at C3F headquarters, June 7, 2024. Wade became the 33rd commander of U.S. 3rd Fleet, a combat-ready force of more than 68,000 people, 100 ships and 400 aircraft stationed throughout California, Hawaii and Washington. An integral part of U.S. Pacific Fleet, U.S. 3rd Fleet not only leads naval forces in the Indo-Pacific, but also provides the realistic, relevant training necessary to flawlessly execute our Navy’s role across the full spectrum of military operations—from combat operations to humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.
