(Left) Lt. Col. Kelly Kyburz, outgoing commander of the Joint Personal Effects Depot at Dover Air Force Base, Del., passed the guidon to Col. Tony Teolis, director of Casualty and Mortuary Affairs Operations Center at Fort Knox. He then passed the guidon to Lt. Col. Mark Laney (right) who took command Friday. The Joint Personal Effects Depot was originally stood up by the U.S. Army Human Resources Command immediately following the events of Sept. 11, 2001. The Army runs the only Joint Personal Effects Depot in the Department of Defense. It is the facility where the personal effects of killed, wounded or missing members from all military services including the Coast Guard, DoD civilians and contractors-—as well as embedded media—are sent. These personal effects are photographed, inventoried and prepared to be returned to the service member, if wounded, or to the person eligible to receive effects for the deceased service member. The CMAOC has command and control over the JPED.
