F.E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. --

The Mighty Ninety gathered to conduct a change of command ceremony June 28, 2021, on the Argonne Parade Field, F.E. Warren Air Force Base, Wyoming, to welcome the 90th Missile Wing's new commander, Col. Catherine Barrington.

Col. Peter Bonetti, the outgoing commander of the 90 MW, shared his gratitude toward the wing.

“I would be a fool if I didn’t recognize the help I've received this entire time,” said Bonetti. “I can see everyone here now in the front row, all the people who’ve been there for me.”

He explained that the support extended past Cheyenne.

“We talk about this place as a military community and I just don’t think it is--it’s a military family,” Bonetti said. “No matter where you go in Wyoming you’ll always have help from your military family.”

After the passing of the guidon, Barrington spoke about her serving as the new 90 MW Commander.

“To the men and women of the Mighty Ninety, Wranglers it’s good to be home,” said Barrington. “Wranglers, rest assured I will work tirelessly to make sure you have everything you need.”

Most recently, she was the 20th Air Force Operations and Communications director, F.E. Warren AFB. Her time there led her to be the 90 MW commander.

Barrington set the expectation on what we will bring to the fight.

“Our nation relies on the combat capability you bring,” said Barrington. “We will provide that.”
