Robinson takes reins at AETC

Lt. Gen. Brian Robinson took the reins of Air Education and Training Command from Lt. Gen. Brad Webb during a change of command ceremony at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph, May 20.

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. CQ Brown, Jr. presided over the ceremony and emphasized the importance of the AETC mission to recruit, train and educate Airmen.

“It’s not the destination, it’s the journey,” Brown said, quoting Ralph Waldo Emerson. “Our Air Force is not just about aircraft, it’s about Airmen, and they all start here. For the past 80 years, every Airman has started their journey with our First Command, Air Education and Training Command. I’m thankful for the professionalism, the capability and the competency of the Airmen at AETC.”

During his speech, Brown talked about Webb’s tenure at AETC and his outstanding leadership and strategic thinking during uncertain times, keeping the training pipelines open for production during the pandemic, setting the standard for the other military services. He then highlighted Robinson’s service and his distinguished flying career, as well as his leadership across the Air Force, including strategic airlift and aerial delivery operations.
