FORT DEVENS, Mass. – Ribbons are best known for the wrapping and decoration of boxed gifts given at special occasions such as birthdays or holidays. But that is not their sole purpose; they are also used as a representation of change and new beginnings.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to dedicate the renovations and re-opening of building 642, the 25th Marine Regiment Headquarters, on Fort Devens May 22, 2014.
“Today’s ceremony marks the re-opening of building 642, the 25th Marine Headquarters,” said Lt. Col. Steven F. Egan, Army Garrison Commander, Fort Devens. “You guys have set a very high standard. I know the partnership that went on with the department of public works and the Ft. Devens’ staff. What you guys have done is incredible, and it truly looks amazing.”
