Col. Scott Campbell, 355th Fighter Wing commander, held his final all call with the 355th Fighter Wing team at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz., June 1, 2018.

Campbell discussed the successes of the base and its Airmen during his command, where he sees the Air Force going in the future, what he has learned as D-M’s commander and answered questions from the Airmen in attendance.

“I’m very proud to have seen this installation grow and improve over the past two years,” Campbell said. “This base will continue to prosper far into the future.”

Though this was Campbell’s last all call as the 355th Fighter Wing commander, he will continue to serve the Air Force as the United States Air Force Academy’s vice commandant of cadets in Colorado Springs, Colo.

“It’s been my honor to command and to serve [the Airmen of D-M],” Campbell said. “It’s been an awesome two years as the wing commander here and I appreciate all of the efforts that you all have put forth for us as an Air Force.”
