JBER holds change of command ceremony

By KTVA CBS 11 News 2:50 PM August 26, 2014
ANCHORAGE –

Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson’s active 3rd Wing as a new commander at its helm.

Col. Chuck Corcoran took over leadership of the wing in a change of command ceremony Monday, replacing Col. David Nahom. Corcoran is a familiar face at JBER — he’s been stationed at the base twice previously. Monday, Corcoran said Nahom launched the 3rd Wing on an upward trajectory he’d like to maintain.

Nahom, who was promoted to the rank of general before the change of command ceremony, is leaving JBER for a position at the Pentagon.
