  • New OC-ALC commander ‘jazzed’ to be at Tinker

    Brig. Gen. Jeff King has long considered himself a customer of the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex. As a career aircraft maintenance officer, he said he has seen the impact of OC-ALC from all around the Air Force. “They probably don’t see it or feel it here in Oklahoma, but they’re making a difference … from the Middle East, to Europe, to the Pacific or any one of our installations that generate air power with the weapon systems we support,” King said. So, when the Air Force sent King to Oklahoma from Hawaii in the middle of a global pandemic, King said he was, “really jazzed about joining the OC-ALC team.” He took command of the complex this past July, and says his first three months have reinforced his belief that readiness starts in our depots. He said the Complex is filled with proud Americans working hard, side-by-side to support our warfighters in the field.
