I wanted to officially say "hello" and tell you what a privilege it is to return here and serve with the 96th Test Wing.  My wife and I look forward to meeting you and learning more about your support for Team Eglin, the test enterprise, and the warfighter.  The legacy of the 96th TW is well known throughout the Air Force and we are honored to be a part of that history.

My transition schedule is front-loaded with mission briefs across the groups and wing staff agencies, and I will focus on getting out and meeting as many of you as I can over the next few weeks.  I will host a commander's call in the near future to address my expectations and goals.

In the meantime, keep doing what you're doing.  Your hard work and professional approach to test and installation support will enable us to lead AFMC in every measure of excellence.  With today's fiscal challenges and a growing array of threats, our nation's well-being is directly linked to your success.  Please never forget that.

Thanks for your service, and for making Eglin AFB a great place to live and work.  We're thrilled to be back!
