New commander takes charge of Air Force's largest wing in Europe
RAMSTEIN AIR BASE, Germany — Brig. Gen. Richard G. Moore Jr. assumed command Wednesday of the 86th Airlift Wing, taking charge of the Air Force’s largest wing in Europe from Brig. Gen. Jon T. Thomas, who was on the job for only 14 months.
Thomas, whose departure was likely hastened by his nomination in April for a second star, leaves Thursday for his new assignment as the director of strategic plans, requirements and programs at Air Mobility Command headquarters at Scott Air Force Base, Ill.
Moore, a transport and tanker pilot, comes to Ramstein from the Pentagon, where he held two separate staff jobs at Air Force headquarters since October 2014.
