F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. --

Captain Robert Chance took command of the 890th Missile Security Forces Squadron during a change of command ceremony June 3, 2019 on F. E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyo.

Prior to his current position, Chance was an exchange officer at Royal Air Force Honington, England.

Major David Lycan, outgoing 890th MSFS commander, will be attending the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth, Kan.

A change of command ceremony is a tradition that represents a formal transfer of authority and responsibility from the outgoing commander to the incoming commander.

Chance expressed his excitement to lead the Airmen of the 890th MSFS.

“I truly believe that there is no better job in the Air Force than squadron command, and my family and I are looking forward to helping grow this young organization,” said Chance. “Maj. Lycan did a fantastic job building the squadron from the ground up and I am honored to be in the position to pick up where he left off and keep moving forward.”
