Lieutenant Colonel Robert Mack took command of the 319th Missile Squadron during a change of command ceremony June 15, 2020 on F. E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming.

Prior to his current position, Mack was the Operations Officer for the 321st Missile Squadron here at F. E. Warren.

Lieutenant Colonel James Schlabach, outgoing 319 MS commander, will step into the role of 90th Operations Group Deputy Commander.

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.

Mack expressed his excitement to take the reins of the squadron and lead the Airmen Screamin' Eagles of the 319th.

“Our Airmen are our most cherished asset,” said Mack. “Without you, we cannot get the job done.”
