The former 307th Mission Support Group deputy commander recently oversaw the deployment of approximately 200 Airmen and has experience as a maintenance operations officer and aircraft maintenance squadron commander.

“He bleeds hydraulic fluid and weeps JP8,” said Col. David R. Anderson, the 307th Bomb Wing commander.

During his speech to 307th MXG personnel, Anderson highlighted the challenges expected in the next five to ten years. The B-52 Stratofortress is scheduled to undergo some of the most radical modernization in its 60-plus years of service.

Horton then thanked his mentors and addressed the 307th MXG Airmen.

He made a commitment to ensuring they have the tools and resources needed to continue to provide safe and reliable aircraft for mission success.

In return, he asked that they be a part of the solution and strive to make a difference for their wingmen.

“I need you to find your drive, find what motivates you, support the Airman next to you always, and let’s go to work.”
