In a ceremony aboard the USS Constitution, Col. Roman Hund retired from active service in the US Air Force on Wednesday, August 1, 2018. Commander of the 66th Air Base Group at Hanscom Air Force Base since July 2016, Col. Hund became a familiar face around Bedford over the past two years.
Here’s a sampling of images captured by The Bedford Citizen over the past two years:
According to the Hanscom Air Force Base website, Col. Hund entered the Air Force in 1992 with a commission through the University of Minnesota Reserve Officer Training Corps program. His assignments include duty as a flight and squadron commander, chief of maintenance, staff/action officer on joint and major command staffs, and executive officer at the wing and MAJCOM level. As the Chief of Maintenance for the 603rd Air Control Squadron, Col. Hund moved the 727th Expeditionary Air Control Squadron from Baghdad International Airport to Balad Air Base, Iraq, supporting ground-based radar and command and control for the entire Operation Iraqi Freedom area of operation. He later served as Deputy Commander, 332nd Expeditionary Mission Support Group, Balad, Iraq, where he succeeded in implementing the largest Base Operations Support-Integrator transition effort ever taken on by the Air Force in combat.
Best wishes to Col. Hund and his family as they move into the private sector.
