A large group of Reserve Citizen Airmen, active-duty Airmen and civilian personnel gathered to watch Lt. Col. Aaron Bohl take command of the 93rd Bomb Squadron during a ceremony here, April 10.

The Louisiana Tech grad earned his commission in 2004, entering service with the U.S. Marine Corps where he became an AH-1W Cobra helicopter pilot. He served in that capacity for eight years before joining the Air Force Reserve as a B-52 H Stratofortress pilot in 2012

Col. David Anderson, 307th Operations Group commander, alluded to Bohl’s breadth and depth of experience during his speech to the gathering of family, friends, and fellow Airmen.

“Lt. Col. Bohl is one of the few in our unit to hold positions in all three of the 307th Operations Group’s organic units,” said Anderson. “He is highly respected in the wing, there is no doubt about that, and brings a ton of operational experience that will help bring the 93rd BS to new heights.”

Since joining the 307th Bomb Wing, Bohl has served with the 343rd BS, the 93rd BS, and most recently as director of operations for the 307th Operations Support Squadron. He has deployed in support of Operation Inherent Resolve and the Air Force’s Continuous Bomb Presence.

Bohl holds a Master’s degree in Business Administration from Louisiana State University and is a Command Pilot with more than 2,500 hours across multiple platforms.

In his first address to the 93rd BS, Hedrick emphasized the importance of its Total Force Integration with the active-duty 11th BS and the need to lead from the front.

“I look forward to building the TFI relationship with our 11 BS partners because we couldn’t do this mission without you,” said Bohl. “To the members of the 93rd, it’s an honor to serve with you, and I won’t ask you to do anything I wouldn’t do myself.”

Bohl replaces outgoing commander Lt. Col. Aaron Hedrick.
