Air Force Reserve Command boss Lt. Gen. Charles Stenner last week announced several senior leadership changes among his ranks. Maj. Gen. Frank Padilla, commander of 10th Air Force at NAS JRB Fort Worth, Tex., will become the Air Force’s deputy inspector general. Brig. Gen. William Binger, AFRC’s Force Generation Center boss at Robins AFB, Ga., will replace Padilla at 10th AF. Maj. Gen. Wade Farris, currently AFRC’s director of air, space, and information operations, will take command of 22nd AF at Dobbins ARB, Ga.
The Air Force will begin its 71st annual Operation Christmas Drop on Dec. 4. The weeklong exercise is a yearly tradition that delivers supplies such as food, fishing equipment, school books, and clothes to remote islands in the Pacific. It is the longest-running Department of Defense humanitarian mission.
