SPANGDAHLEM AIR BASE, Germany --

MEET YOUR NEW COMMANDER

Name/Rank: Lt. Col. Gregory Mayer

Organization: 52nd Civil Engineer Squadron

Where and When you Joined the AF (Source of Commissioning for Officers):
I was commissioned into the Air Force by my dad after I graduated from Texas A&M University in December of 1999.

Off-duty time is for: Spending time with family and friends, exploring local sites, participating in an activity you enjoy or pursuing your long-term goals.

(Past three) previous assignments:
- Student, U.S. Army War College, Carlisle Barracks, Pa.

- Commander, 56th Civil Engineer Squadron, Luke AFB, Ariz.

- Eastern Europe Branch Chief, HQ USAFE/A5I, Ramstein AB, Germany

Organizational Goals:
We will focus on supporting the wing in the development of full-spectrum airpower, building combat-ready engineers, developing military and civilian leaders and ensuring Spangdahlem continues to be a great place to work and live.


Work Philosophy:

I want leaders at all levels in my squadron to empower their subordinates, treat others with respect and remain optimistic — all while focusing on providing superior customer service. Relationships within the squadron and across the wing are vitally important and should be cultivated. Finally, in order to take care of your wingman, you’ve got to personally get to know your peers and subordinates.
