ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. The command of the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center at Kirtland Air Force Base is changing hands.

The Air Force says Brig. Gen. Sandra Finan on Thursday will assume command of the center from Maj. Gen. Garrett Harencak during a ceremony on the base.

Finan entered the Air National Guard in 1982 as an enlisted cryptographic equipment repair specialist. She received her commission by graduating from officer training school.

She most recently served as a top official for a Department of Energy program that stores and secures nuclear weapons.

Harencak is being reassigned to the Pentagon to serve as an assistant chief of staff for the Air Force.

Finan has been nominated for promotion to major general.
