DOBBINS AIR RESERVE BASE, Ga. -- It was a special day for Lt. Col. Brad Douglass and his family. Not only did the family see their loved one promoted to the rank of colonel, but they also watched as he assumed command of the 94th Maintenance Group in a ceremony here Saturday.

The ceremony was presided over by Brig. Gen. Richard L. Kemble, 94th Airlift Wing commander, who spoke highly of the maintenance group and how well they have been performing.

“I’m grateful to be leading such a high performing group of maintainers,” said Douglass. “My goal is to continue leading this unit towards success and ultimately finding those little pockets of areas that we can improve to take us to the next level.”

This Air Force Reserve Citizen Airman began his journey in 1999 after graduating from the Reserve Officer Training Corps program at Middle Tennessee State University. Most recently, he held an Individual Mobilization Augmentee position at the Pentagon where he worked with the A4 Nuclear Weapons, Missiles and Munitions Division.

Douglass, the Pentagon officer turned commander, is humbled by his latest promotion.

“I’m honored to be the newest member of this high performing team, and General Kemble, I promise you that I’ll do my best to take them to the next level,” Douglass said.
