HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah – Brig. Gen. Stacey T. Hawkins will take command of the Ogden Air Logistics Complex in a ceremony here today.

Hawkins comes from Headquarters Air Mobility Command at Scott AFB, Illinois, where he served as director of logistics, engineering and force protection. In that role he was responsible to the AMC commander for leadership, management, and integration of total-force logistics, engineering, and force protection activities across the global mobility air forces enterprise.

The general has served in special-duty assignments as a U.S. Air Force Honor Guard ceremonial guardsman and as maintenance officer for the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. He also served as special adviser to the vice president of the United States at the White House.

As Ogden ALC commander, he’ll lead an organization of approximately 8,100 personnel who perform depot repair, overhaul, and modification of the A-10, C-130, F-16, F-22, F-35 and T-38 aircraft, the Minuteman intercontinental ballistic missile system, and a wide range of commodities. His responsibilities will extend to maintenance operations at remote sites in Japan, Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, Texas, California, Florida, and ICBM wings located in Wyoming, North Dakota and Montana.

Hawkins is a native of Bastrop, Louisiana, and a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy who began his active-duty career in 1991. He replaces Brig. Gen. Steven Bleymaier, who served as Ogden ALC commander since August 2015.
