Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - August 21, 2020

Hello everyone, and welcome to the August 21st edition of Nellis AFB / Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! The 57th Wing at Nellis welcomed a new commander earlier this month, as Brig. Gen. Michael “Johnny Bravo” Drowley took command of the wing from Brig. Gen. Robert Novotny. “I feel resolved, proud and excited today,” said Novotny. “I feel that way because I’m giving the wing to an incredible man and patriotic friend, Johnny Bravo. No matter what challenges come your way I know you’ll tackle them and make the 57th Wing better.” Drowley previously served as commander of the 355th Wing at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.
