86th Airlift Wing,

As I settle into my new role as your wing commander, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for the incredibly warm welcome, and share my enthusiasm about the journey ahead.

Since stepping into this position in the past month, I have been deeply impressed by the remarkable dedication, professionalism, and spirit that define this team. It was a privilege to recognize 182 Airmen who were selected to promote to the esteemed rank of Master Sergeant, a clear testament to the exceptional talent and leadership within our ranks. I also had the honor of commending 3 Airlifters of the Week, whose exceptional efforts and achievements form the very foundation of our mission's strength. And let's not forget our long-term host nation employees, who were honored at the Length of Service Ceremony for their 20-45 years of dedicated service. This event was a poignant reminder of the enduring partnerships and mutual respect that strengthen our Kaiserslautern Military Community.

Having previously served as the 521st Air Mobility Operations Wing commander on this base, I had the privilege to witness the excellence that the 86th Airlift Wing embodies. It is an incredible honor to lead this extraordinary team. My highest priority as your wing commander is to provide unwavering support. Your hard work and dedication are the backbone of our operations, and I am committed to ensuring you have the resources, training, and opportunities you need to continue to excel. Your well-being and professional development are of the utmost importance to me, and I am dedicated to fostering a culture where everyone feels valued and empowered to do their best work.

Thank you again for such a heartfelt welcome. I look forward to seeing firsthand your incredible contributions to the success of the Global Gateway mission, and providing you with pathways to soar to even greater heights.
