Volk Field has a new commander
VOLK FIELD, Wis. (WKBT) — Volk Field has a new commander as of this week.
Col. Matthew Eakins took command Jan. 10 of the Air National Guard combat readiness training center.
“I’m excited to be in command of such a world-class organization,” Eakins said during a formal assumption of command ceremony. “There are only four CRTCs in the country, and Volk Field is known to be the best.
“At the same time, our squadrons continue to deliver world-class results around the world when they deploy,” Eakins continued. “Not only are your facilities, your airspace and your Airmen and full-time workforce second to none, your professionalism and pride in how you approach your job day in and day out is a reflection of your commitment to providing the best experience for our customers.”
The previous commander, Col. Leslie A. Zyzda-Martin was relieved of duty in November following allegations of misconduct. Lt. Col. Tom BAuer served as interim commander.
