HILL AIR FORCE BASE (AP) -- Col. Sharon Dunbar, a 22-year Air Force veteran, has assumed command of the 75th Air Base Wing.

The wing operates Hill Air Force Base and is host to other units, including the 388th and 419th fighter wings and the Ogden Air Logistics Center.

"I think getting out to an operation unit with such a stellar reputation, supporting two fighter wings and a premier Air Logistics Center, I'm excited," Dunbar said at the change-of-command ceremony Thursday. "This wing has an outstanding reputation."

Dunbar succeeds Col. Sebastian Romano, 49, who is retiring after 26 years in the Air Force and is going to work for a civil engineering firm in Virginia.

Dunbar, a 1982 graduate of the Air Force Academy, comes to Hill from Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, where she was commander of the 737th Training Group.

She is the first woman to command the 75th.
