MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho – U.S. Air Force Maj. Kelli Walker assumed command of the 389th and 391st Fighter Generation Squadrons and Maj. Carrie Dumlao assumed command of the 366th Maintenance Squadron during an assumption of command ceremony Dec. 8, 2023 at Mountain Home Air Force Base, Idaho.


The 391st FGS, and 366th MXS recently faced several challenges that required a change in leadership. The new commanders are moving into these positions with a fresh perspective, ready to face those challenges and continue building toward the future.


“This is a unique situation and with it will come unique challenges. I am grateful for the opportunity and I will work hard for the men and women in both the 389th FGS and the 391st FGS," said Maj. Kelli Walker, 389th and 391st FGS commander. "Both squadrons are at the forefront of generating combat airpower for our nation I owe it to each of them as well as their families to train them and equip them for success.” 


“I am excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and the potential for growth and advancement that I see within the 366th MXS,” said Maj. Carrie Dumlao, 366th MXS commander. “This is an organization with many strengths, and I hope to cultivate them and bring them out to fortify the wing mission.”


Dumlao said she hopes to build upon the strong foundation that’s already there in the maintenance group and ultimately achieve the unit’s vision of being the premier strike eagle maintenance squadron.


As leadership changes, the 366th’s mission remains the same, provide mission-ready Gunfighters to conduct military operations anytime, anywhere. These units play a critical role in that mission, keeping our Strike Eagles in the air.
