Air Force Reserve Command’s 910th Airlift Wing at Youngstown ARS, Ohio, added a new squadron by elevating the 910th Communications Flight to squadron status. “With the increased focus on cyber operations, we’ve experienced an increase in staff to help shoulder the workload,” said Lt. Col. Pete Milkovich, 910th CS commander, at the chance-of-status ceremony at the wing’s headquarters on Jan. 7. “We have already been functioning at a squadron level, so the change from flight to squadron is kind of a formality,” he added.
