Col. Andrew Gebara will take over command from outgoing commander Col. Tim Fay.
Fay commanded the wing for nearly two years. He will move on to a new assignment at the Pentagon.
Col. Fay assumed command of the 2nd Bomb Wing from Col. Steven Basham in a change-of-command ceremony at Hoban Hal in July of 2010.
Maj. Gen. Floyd L. Carpenter, 8th Air Force commander, presided over that ceremony.
Col. Fay’s career began at Barksdale in May 1989, when he served as an executive officer and B-52 pilot with the 596th Bomb Squadron. He returned again in November 2007 as the 2nd Operations Group commander.

Gebara, a Highland, Calif., native, entered the Air Force in 1991 after commissioning through the U.S. Naval Academy. A veteran of four campaigns, he has served tours of duty with the Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps, as well as two stints on the multinational personal staff of the commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Kabul, Afghanistan.
A command pilot with more than 3,300 hours, he has 46 combat sorties in the A-10 fighter and B-2 bomber in Iraq and other theaters, and flew a 29-hour combat support sortie in the opening days of the Afghan conflict.
