403rd to get new leader

KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- Col. Jay Jensen, commander of the 403rd Wing at Keesler Air Force Base in Biloxi, Miss., is being reassigned to the Pentagon. Jensen will be senior Air Force policy administrator for the Reserve Forces Policy Board. In that job he’ll advocate for reservists. A new commander will take over the 403rd at the end of this month. In addition to a change in leadership, the 403rd is changing in other ways. The Hurricane Hunters will stay at Keesler but 10 of the C-130Js in the 403rd are being transferred to North Carolina. In addition, the active duty 345th will be reassigned to other active duty posts and the 815th will be dissolved. (Source: Sun Herald, 07/08/13)
