YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — The 910th Airlift Wing at the Youngstown Air Force Reserve Station in Ohio has a new commander.
Air Force Reserve Col. Joseph Janik took over as wing commander and installation commander of the Youngstown Air Force Reserve Station in Trumbull County in a ceremony Saturday.
Janik replaces Col. Daniel Sarachene, who became commander Feb. 1, 2017.
A U.S. Air Force colonel based at Scott Air Force Base is being promoted to general and will head the Illinois Air National Guard.
Janik said after the ceremony that the Reserve station is in a good position because of strong support from its base-community council and projects including completion of a multimillion-dollar shooting range.
As installation commander, the Buffalo, New York, native will lead day-to-day operations and maintenance of the Reserve station that provides support for nearly 2,000 assigned Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps reservists and civil service employees.
On Monday, the Air Force made Capt. Zoe “SiS” Kotnik the first female pilot to command the F-16 Viper Demo Team.
