The 932nd Airlift Wing welcomed the 22nd Air Force Commander, Maj. Gen. Bret Larson and 22nd Air Force Command Chief, Chief Master Sgt. Chin Cox, during their visit, Oct. 15-16, 2022.

While at the 932nd, Larson and Cox met with Citizen Airmen around the wing to discuss how the higher command could best serve them and the importance of bridging the gap between the decision-makers and the Airmen they affect.

 "We want to enhance communication and show that we understand the challenges of some of our processes," Larson said. "Our goal here is to show that the Airmen are our priority, and we want to help them be the best, most capable, and most fulfilled Airmen they can be."

Cox echoed Larson's sentiment, stressing the importance of Reserve Citizen Airmen of the 932nd to seek new challenges.

 "If someone asks you to volunteer for something, it’s because they believe in you,” Cox said. “Take those opportunities every chance you can because they will help you further your career.

During their time here, the command team answered questions from the Airmen and discussed the Air Force Reserves' critical role in ensuring national security.

 "We have to have smarter processes," said Larson. "It's the bureaucracy that we have to get past. We need to break through that. As commander, I work for the Airmen of the 22nd Air Force. I have 12,000 bosses, and that is all of you. It's my job to ensure you have the tools, motivation, and training you need to perform. I'm not doing my job if they don't have those things. It is important to maintain our readiness because we don't know when our nation will need us to defend her."
