Camp Pendleton's 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, known as the "Magnificent Bastards," will have a new leader starting Friday.

Camp Pendleton Patch reports Maj. Robert S. Weiler will become the new commanding officer of the 2/4, taking over command from Lt. Col. William H. Vivian.

The change of command ceremony will take place on base this Friday.

If you're looking for a place to celebrate the change of command, why not head over to "Bastards" in Downey? The bar, opened by former Marine Cpl. Nick Velez, was named in honor of the "Magnificent Bastards," Velez's former battalion. Click here to read more about that story.
