Col. John Devillier will be installed as commander of the 88th Air Base Wing during a 10 a.m. ceremony at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. He replaces Col. Cassie Barlow who is retiring.
Until now Devillier served as Commander of Air Force Mortuary Affairs Operations at Dover Air Force Base in Delaware. He also previously commanded the 466th Air Expeditionary Group in Afghanistan.
