Change of Command

Col. Tom Yanni (center holding flag) assumes command of the Air Force Special Operations Command Air and Space Operations Center, or AOC, from Col. Rick Leibach (right) during a change of command ceremony recently. About a year ago, the AOC was established to directly support AFSOC's warfighting capability. "This ceremony celebrates the accomplishments of Colonel Leibach and welcomes, with high expectations, Colonel Yanni," said officiating officer Col. Michael Callan (left), Air Force Special Operations Forces commander. Colonel Yanni previously served as AFSOC Chief of Safety. Colonel Leibach is now assigned as AFSOC Operations Chief of Standardization and Evaluation. (U.S. Air Force photo by A1C Ali Flisek)
