Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has nominated Lt. Gen. Bradley Heithold to be commander of Air Force Special Operations Command at Hurlburt Field, Fla.

Heithold currently serves as vice commander of U.S. Special Operations Command at the Pentagon.

Heithold enlisted in the Air Force in 1974 and spent three years as an avionics technician at Holloman Air Force Base, N.M., according to his Air Force biography. He was commissioned in 1981 as a distinguished graduate of the ROTC program at the University of Arkansas. He was commander of the Air Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance Agency at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland before coming to the Pentagon in July 2011.

If confirmed, Heithold, a master navigator with more than 3,400 flight hours, would replace Lt. Gen. Eric Fiel, who has commanded AFSOC since 2011.
