GOODFELLOW AIR FORCE BASE, Texas --

The 313th Training Squadron conducted their change of command ceremony at the event center May 10.

The 313th TRS welcomed their incoming commander, Lt. Col. Herbert Millet III, and thanked Lt. Col. David Sarabia, 313th TRS outgoing commander, for his hard work and dedication.

The 313th TRS was initiated 40 years ago, but was deactivated in 2011 due to the blending of 1N2 and 1N5 career fields.

In October 2018, the 313th TRS was reactivated after the need for advanced Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance training arose. During this time, Sarabia went from overseeing only one individual to commanding over 60 staff members who train over 200 students a day.
