HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- The 419th Force Support Squadron held a change of command ceremony here Oct. 6 as Lt. Col. Trevor Boswell relinquished command to Maj. Brian Weese.

Prior to assuming command, Weese served as individual mobilization augmentee to the Pacific Command Headquarters Commander, Pacific Air Forces at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii. Weese earned his commis­sion in 2007 through the Deserving Airman Commissioning Program.

During his remarks, Weese said he looks forward to the challenge of leading the FSS. He also stressed that the FSS is one of the most integral squadrons in the wing because it helps everyone else do their job.

“We are warriors bound to serve every member of this nation,” Weese said. “We are the stable force that helps this country sleep at night.”

Boswell relinquished command after leading the FSS since 2017, during which time they were named Best Military Personnel Flight in the Air Force Reserve in 2018. He will go on to serve as the Air Watch Duty Officer at Peterson Air Force Base, Colo.

“This is the most diverse mission set in the entire fighter wing, and each one of you has personally had a hand in the life of each person in this room,” Boswell said. “Whether you knew it or not, you are the mission.”

The 419th FSS is made up of about 70 people who manage nearly every aspect of an Airman’s career, overseeing force management, career development, education and training, services, family readiness, and computer support.
