Air Force selects 409 officers for squadron command Published Dec. 5, 2014 Air Force Personnel Center Public Affairs JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- More than 400 officers from various career fields have been selected for logistics, mission support, materiel leader, operations support and air base squadron command, Air Force Personnel Center officials announced. Using squadron commander candidate lists released in September, wing hiring officials, major command functional managers and AFPC assignment teams matched 409 candidates to projected command positions, said Joseph Marchino, AFPC special duty assignments branch. Assignment teams will coordinate reporting dates with gaining and losing units to effect the announced command assignments. Not all candidates were matched, though, Marchino explained. Developmental teams select more candidates than known requirements to account for unprojected requirements that might occur throughout the year. Non-selected members will remain on the candidate lists and eligible for unprojected command opportunities until superseded by calendar year 2016 results. Non-selected officers also remain eligible for other assignment opportunities. "Being selected for squadron command is the culmination of years of preparation, training, and education. It is a significant milestone for advancing to progressively higher levels of command," said Marchino.
