GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Grand Forks Air Force Base has a new commander.

Col. Paul Baumann took the reins from Col. Christopher Mann during an assumption of command ceremony on Wednesday.

Mann was a vice commander who took over temporarily in mid-march when then-commander Col. Tim Bush was relieved of command for failing to meet physical fitness requirements.

Baumann comes from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage, Alaska, where he was a wing vice commander.

The Grand Forks Herald reports that Gen. William Bender says Baumann has the aptitude and attitude for the job and a sterling biography.

The general says Baumann knows the Air Force from every angle, from the Pentagon to the field level.
