LAYTON, Utah (AP) — A new commander is set to take over the 75th Air Base Wing at Hill Air Force Base.

The Air Force says Col. Kathryn L. Kolbe will take command at a ceremony scheduled for Jan 11.

Kolbe will oversee the Ogden Air Logistics Complex, which has two fighter wings and other operations with 24,000 active-duty, civilian and contract personnel.

Kolbe succeeds Col. Sarah E. Zabel, who is being promoted to brigadier general and will become special assistant to the commander of the Air Force Sustainment Center in Oklahoma.

A native of Pennsylvania, Kolbe earned her commission through the ROTC program at Lehigh University. She was based in Baghdad in 2009-2010.
