The 302nd Maintenance Group Airmen welcomed their new commander during a change of command ceremony, here, June 7.

Col. Jason Martin relinquished command of the 302nd MXG to Col. Jordan Murphy.

During his last address to his Reserve Citizen Airmen, Martin, spoke of the group’s professionalism and accomplishments.

“You’re inheriting an excellent group of talented maintainers,” said Martin. “I know they’ll be in good hands.”

Before taking command of the 302nd MXG, Murphy graduated from Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama, and commanded the Air Force Reserve’s largest maintenance squadron.

Martin is now serving as the Air Force Reserve Command’s Aircraft Maintenance Division chief at Robins Air Force Base, Georgia.

The 302nd MXG is responsible for maintaining the 302nd Airlift Wing’s C-130 Hercules aircraft and maintenance equipment. The group trains and equips Airmen to support wartime and peacetime operations, to include the wing’s aerial firefighting mission.
