Commander of DAFB 512th Airlift Wing Moving On


The commander of the 512th Airlift Wing at Dover Air Force Base, Col. Craig Peters, has been selected to lead the 439th Airlift Wing, at Westover Air Reserve Base, Massachusetts. Peters has been the 512th AW commander since June 2017. During his time at Dover, he successfully led the wing through a unit effectiveness inspection and the wing’s largest deployment since the early 2000s. Peters is scheduled to assume command of the 439th AW in April. Col. Norman Shaw, the 512th AW’s vice commander, will lead the wing until Peters’ successor is named.
