    The 332d Expeditionary Mission Support Group was inactivated and Col. William Notbohm relinquished command of the group during a ceremony at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia, May 13.

    In place of the EMSG is the newly formed Base Operations Support directorate, the A 1/6/7, which encompasses administrative functions in support of communication systems, force support, civil engineering, contracting and security operations.

    “The Base Operations Support directorate is designed to be a lean, scalable, problem-solving staff that will accelerate and improve the quality of wing decision making in the realm of base operations support,” said Notbohm.

    The group’s inactivation completes a trio of strategic organizational changes for the 332d Air Expeditionary Wing as it follows the Air Forces Central Command directive to transition to an A-Staff construct.

    “This is truly another historic day, both for this wing and for the 332d EMSG,” said Brig. Gen. Christopher Sage, 332d AEW commander. “As we execute the inactivation ceremony today, we will not forget the amazing work you’ve done. We will stand on your shoulders as we face the future.”

    The 332d Expeditionary Maintenance and Operations Groups were inactivated last month, making way for the Intelligence, Operations and Plans directorate and the Logistics directorate, also known as the A 2/3/5 and A4 respectively.

    A-staff is the common organizational structure for major commands within the U.S. Air Force, designed to allow for greater agility and faster decision making.

    “We will leverage today’s event to make us more lethal,” said Sage. “Today we take a step forward together into the future of our Air Force; the future of the Red Tails.”

    In his final address to members of the 332d EMSG, Notbohm reflected on his time in command.

    “It has been an honor, and will forever be the pinnacle of my professional career, to have led the Airmen of the 332nd EMSG. The Squadrons of the EMSG are well-led and peaking in performance. We are ready. Let’s make history. Spit Fire!”
