Maj. Gen. Christopher Weggeman has succeeded Maj. Gen. Burke Wilson and assumed command of the 24th Air Force – Air Forces Cyber.
Weggeman is the fourth commander of the component numbered Air Force, the U.S. Air Force said June 20.
He previously served as director of the U.S. Cyber Command‘s plans and policy and was principal adviser on strategy, policy, contingency and theater security cooperation planning.
“The cyber mission is so dynamic, there is much to be done… Weggeman is the right leader, at the right time, to take 24th Air Force to the next level,” said Wilson.
Wilson will move on to his new assignment at the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
The change-of-command ceremony was held in June at Joint Base San Antonio – Lackland.
