The Air Force has assigned Lt. Gen. Clyde Moore to command the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio, announced the Defense Department on Wednesday. Air Force Materiel Command created the center last fall as part of the command-wide reorganization that saw it consolidate functions from 12 centers to five. AFLCMC oversees the command’s acquisition mission. Moore has been serving since October as AFMC vice commander.
