Lt. Col. Emily Ladd relinquished command of the 582nd Operations Support Squadron to Lt. Col. Cas Smith in a change of command ceremony in the helicopter hangar on F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, June 12, 2023.

Smith most recently served as the director of operations for the 37th Helicopter Squadron here on F.E. Warren.
