New Commander for Air Force Expeditionary Center

Maj. Gen. Frederick Martin assumed command of the Air Force Expeditionary Center at JB McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J., this week. Gen. Paul Selva, head of Air Mobility Command, presided over the Sept. 9 change-of command ceremony, according to McGuire’s Sept. 11 release. Martin succeeded Maj. Gen. William J. Bender who ran the center since October 2010. “There is mobility happening everywhere on every continent of the globe,” said Martin upon assuming command. He said the center builds relationships that lead to partnerships. Martin comes to the Expeditionary Center after a year as deputy director of the Office of Security Cooperation-Baghdad, Iraq. The center is the Air Force’s center of excellence for advanced expeditionary combat support training and education. (McGuire report by Capt. Brooke Brzozowske)
