US İncirlik Air Force gets new air commander

U.S. Air Force Colonel Paul Quigley has been named as the new commander at the U.S. İncirlik Air Base’s 39th Weapons System Security Group (WSSG) in the southern Turkish province of Adana.

39th WSSG Commander Col. Quigley took over his mission from 39th Air Base Wing Commander Air Force Colonel David Eaglin with the 39th WSSG change of command ceremony at the İncirlik Air Base on June 7, the official website of the base announced.

Eaglin presented the guidon to Quigley as a tradition of a change of command ceremony, formally transferring authority and responsibility from the outgoing commander to the incoming commander.

The İncirlik Air Base serves as a main base for U.S. military operations in the region.

The base is used by the U.S. Air Force, the Turkish Air Force, the Royal Air Force and the Royal Saudi Air Force. It also houses a stockpile of dozens of American tactical nuclear weapons.
