HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah — Col. Jon Eberlan will become the 75th Air Base Wing Commander at Hill AFB during a change of command ceremony here at 9 a.m. April 13.

Eberlan is remaining at Hill after nearly two years as the 309th Aircraft Maintenance Group commander in the Ogden Air Logistics Complex.

While at the 309th AMXG, he led 2,300 personnel in delivering depot repair, overhaul, modification and maintenance support to major weapon systems, including the C-130, F-16, F-22, T-38, F-35, and A-10 aircraft.

The group also provides “on-request” depot field team support and is responsible for U.S. Air Force world-wide Aircraft Battle Damage Repair.

During the ceremony, Hill will also bid farewell to Col. Jennifer Hammerstedt, who has served as 75th Air Base Wing Commander since June 2016. She is moving to Washington D.C. to serve in an assignment at the Pentagon.

As Hill’s installation commander, Hammerstedt was responsible for the Air Force’s second largest base by population and size. The wing oversees 1,000,000 acres and over 1,300 facilities valued at $6.5 billion while providing installation support for Ogden Air Logistics Complex, Life Cycle Management Center, Nuclear Weapons Center, 388th and 419th Fighter Wings and over 50 other associate units totaling 23,000 personnel. The 75th Air Base Wing also has base support responsibility for the operation of the 1,490-square-mile Utah Test and Training Range.
