Squadron moving to Duke

The 524th Special Operations Squadron at Cannon Air Force Base, N.M., is relocating to Duke Field near Crestview. Once here, it will become part of the 492nd Special Operations Wing. Cannon celebrated the heritage of the 524th SOS and the C-146 Wolfhound at an end-of-mission ceremony Wednesday, where the squadron guidon was turned over the 492nd SOW. The move to Duke Field has been under discussion for more than four years, according to Lt. Col. Derick Steed, 524th SOS commander. (Source: 27th Special Operations Wing, 05/31/17)
