Atlantic Command, Commander in Chief US

The title Commander in Chief, Atlantic Fleet was in common usage until late 1922 when the title Commander Scouting Force replaced it. Usage of the title Commander in Chief, Atlantic Fleet, was resumed on 1 February 1941, when the United States Fleet was reorganized to form the US Atlantic, US Pacific and US Asiatic Fleets, each with a four-star commander-in-chief. The title was changed in 2002 to Commander US Atlantic Fleet.
