WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - There is a change of command at the top of one of the region's most-loved tourist attractions.

Captain Terry Bragg is the new executive director of the Battleship North Carolina War Memorial.

He replaces Captain David Scheau.  He retired from the Navy before taking charge of the battleship and is preparing to retire from those duties as well.

The battleship is host to more than 250,000 visitors every year, and keeping it ship-shape is a big job.
