Chief Master Sgt. Jason France, chief at Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command, has been assigned to serve as senior enlisted leader of the U.S. Transportation Command.
He will perform his new duties from Scott Air Force Base, Ill., succeeding Chief Master Sgt. Matthew Caruso, the Defense Department said Monday.
France joined the U.S. Air Force in 1990, his career spanning the staff, squadron, wing, center, group and command levels. He took part in major security and military operations such as Sea Signal, Southern Watch, Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom.
In his current role with AFMC, France advises leaders on factors that contribute to the performance of enlisted airmen, and supports efforts to develop and implement policy.
France's assignment to TRANSCOM comes four days after U.S. Army Gen. Stephen Lyons' swearing in as the command's new leader.
