WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE — Brig. Gen. Alice W. Trevino officially took command of the Air Force Installation Contracting Agency at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in a recent change of command ceremony.
Trevino replaced Brig. Gen. Cameron Holt, who is leaving to become the deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition in Washington D.C.
Maj. Gen. Bradley D. Spacy, commander of the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center in Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, presided over the ceremony and commented on the revolutionary impact Holt had on contracting and unique qualifications of Trevino to lead AFICA into the future.
Spacy said Trevino arrived exquisitely prepared for the job, referring to Trevino’s four master degrees and commands at two squadrons, one group-level and one wing-level, where she was ranked number one amongst her peers each time. Spacy also commented on Trevino’s five deployments, including during combat, peace keeping and humanitarian operations, saying Trevino knows the business from the pointy end of the spear.
Trevino congratulated the men and women of AFICA on their past successes and expressed her excitement to take the team even further.
“To the AFICA team, your efforts in support of the warfighter to transform acquisition innovation into a warfighting capacity are invaluable and your mission-focused reputation is one of superiority,” Trevino said. “We will stay on that task for superiority because it is about flying, fighting and winning. I look forward to leading with, and alongside of you, as we take AFICA forward.”
Trevino also spoke of her love for Dayton — this is Trevino’s second tour at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the first being at the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, where she served as deputy director for contracting — and thanked attendees for their warm welcome back to the community.
