Wing Commander Takes Final Flight
180th Fighter Wing Commander, Col. Craig Baker, prepares for his final flight as the wing’s commander, July 14, 2016, concluding his historic tour as the first active duty officer to command an Air National Guard Wing. The 180FW became the first Ohio National Guard unit in history to become part of the Air Force’s Total Force Integration concept when the wing was assigned an active duty commander March 2, 2014. Baker’s assignment to the 180FW was one of the first steps in building the framework to increase overall integration between the Active Component, or AC, and the Reserve Component, referred to as RC, which is comprised of the Air Force Reserves and Air National Guard.
