Capt Jon Becker assumed command of Pierre Composite Squadron this week during a change of command ceremony at the squadron headquarters. Due to weather travel safety concerns, Col Michael Marek, SD Wing Commander, conducted the change of command ceremony via Internet video.
Becker succeeded Captain Ruth Carley, who was completing her four-year term as commander.
Becker is a CAP mission pilot, observer and scanner. He previously served as CAP’s squadron commander in Pierre from 2016 to 2018 and in several squadron jobs.
