The head of the Air Force Expeditionary Center on Wednesday relieved Col. Ryan Marshall, the commander of the 621st Contingency Response Wing, because of a loss of confidence due to alleged conduct unbecoming an officer.
Marshall had been the commander of the wing since June 2018.
“This decision was made in the best interest of the men and women serving in the 621st CRW,” Expeditionary Center Commander Maj. Gen. John Gordy said in a release. “I hold our leaders to the highest standard because that’s what our Airmen deserve.”
No additional details were released. Wing Vice Commander Col. James Hall has been named the interim commander, effective immediately.
The 621st CRW, based at JB McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., is the military’s only contingency response wing tasked with missions such as rapidly deploying to quickly open airfields in austere locations.
