Cdr. Borya Celentano relieved Cdr. Lucas Mixon as commanding officer of Strike Fighter Squadron 204 (VFA-204) aboard Naval Air Station Joint Reserve New Orleans in a change of command ceremony February 6, 2021 in Belle Chasse.

During Cdr. Mixon’s's tenure as commanding officer, he oversaw multiple support detachments, and VFA-204’s first deployment to Guam in ten years. “VFA-204 successfully moved 10 F/A-18s, 160 people, and 60,000 pounds of support equipment to and from Guam in support of CVW-5 SFARP, marking the command’s first overseas detachment on over a decade. I was extremely proud of our Sailors’ hard work and determination in accomplishing this audacious goal!’ Cdr. Mixon said.
