CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Cheyenne’s Air Force Base has a new commander for its missile wing.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1FPWI8o) Col. Stephen Kravitsky took over the F.E. Warren Air Force Base’s 90th Missile Wing Wednesday in a change-of-command ceremony.

The transition comes amid reports of low morale as base leaders work to recover from a test-cheating scandal and a drug investigation, among other issues.

Kravitsky enlisted at the age of 18 and has served various roles related to intercontinental ballistic missiles.

The 29-year airman replaces Col. Tracey Hayes, who was the missile wing’s first female commander and is headed to a different role at the Pentagon.

She was presented with the Legion of Merit during the ceremony for distinguished and meritorious conduct.
