Lt. Col. Tracy Markle assumed command of the 14th Operational Medical Readiness Squadron during a change of command ceremony July 16, 2020, on Columbus Air Force Base, Mississippi.

Markle relived the position from Lt. Col. Tracy Snyder, former 14th OMRS commander, who guided the squadron through many achievements over her time as commander.

“Thank you for the amazing opportunity to join the 14th OMRS,” said Markle. “To the men and women of the squadron, I am in awe of all the accomplishments that I have heard and thank you for the privilege of being able to join your team and I look forward to serving with you over the next two years.”

The 14th OMRS provides and coordinates comprehensive health care for a community of active duty, dependents, retirees and family member Department of Defense beneficiaries. The squadron also has the responsibility for preventive, integrated health care through mental health, public health, physical therapy, optometry and health and wellness activities for Columbus Air Force Base.
