CHEYENNE, WYO. — The 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base has a female commander for the first time.
Col. Tracey L. Hayes formally took command of the wing and its 150 nuclear missiles in a ceremony Monday. Hayes previously served as vice wing commander of the 460th Space Wing at Buckley Air Force Base in Aurora, Colo.
The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports Hayes replaces Col. George Farfour, who temporarily took over command duties when Col. Chris “Boots” Coffelt stepped down at the end of May.
Hayes said she looks forward to upholding the reputation and excellence the missile wing has shown in the past.
The 90th Missile Wing has some 3,500 civilian and military personnel.
