The U.S.S. Constitution is getting a new commander, and he’s another native New Englander.

Cmdr. Sean Kearns is scheduled to take command of the historic warship docked at the Charlestown Navy Yard in Boston in an onboard change-of-command ceremony on Friday morning.

Kearns, from Hampden, Maine, takes over from Cmdr. Matt Bonner, a Meredith, N.H., native who is moving on to a job with the Joint Staff at the Pentagon.

Kearns holds degrees from Boston University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He recently completed a tour at the Surface Warfare Officers School Command in Newport, R.I.

The Constitution is the world’s oldest commissioned warship still afloat.
