93rd AGOW has new commander

The 93rd Air Ground Operations Wing at Moody Air Force Base has a new commander.

Brigadier General John P. Horner transferred command to Col. Scott A. Kindsvater Friday.

Moody airmen and families gathered to say goodbye to Brigadier General John Horner.

"It's been a hell of a ride and I won't forget it," said General Horner.

 "He'll be missed but his new command is very lucky to have him," said Tech Sgt. Charles Loner.

General Horner now heads to the Pentagon and and will be the director of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.

Tech Sgt. Loner says the general made a lot of improvements.

"Alot of improvements and technology we have as far as training equipment the simulators, new equipment training for a lot of our shooters improved weapon systems," said Loner.

With a symbolic change of command that dates back to the ancient Roman army, Col. Scott Kindsvater is now the commander of the 93rd Air Ground Operations Wing.

He wants to continue the ability to deploy in a moment's notice and explore ways to be more efficient in areas the chief of staff has coined persistent conflict.

Every two years commanders change. Col. Scott Kindsvater is ready to take it to the next level.

A change in command ceremony will be held for the 23rd wing next week.

The current commander, Col Gary W. Henderson is headed to Germany.
