Maj. Jessica Z. Wruck assumed command of the 452nd Security Forces Squadron at the Cultural Resource Center, here at March Air Reserve Base, August 26.

Col. Kelly E. Hosey, 452nd Mission Support Group commander, presided over the assumption of command ceremony.

"There's no doubt in my mind that Maj. Wruck is the right person to lead the 452nd Security Forces Squadron," said Hosey. "I'm glad that we're finally making it official."

Maj. Wruck is a 2007 graduate of North Carolina A&T State University with a degree in Electronics and Computer Technology, where she also received her commission. She previously served as the Operations Officer for the 452nd Security Forces Squadron.

"I can't think of a better location or unit to be in," said Wruck. "It's not just about the location, it's about the people. That's the truth. The leadership here has grown up together and they are invested in this unit and this base."

Maj. Wruck will command over 270 airmen providing base operations security support, deployment support for combatant commander assigned missions, and weapons qualification and maintenance for the 452nd Air Mobility Wing and surrounding Air Force agencies. The 452nd SFS also ensures the protection of assets valued at over $2.2 billion dollars and a base population of over 5,500 personnel.

"I challenge all of you to come up with your own leadership philosophy," said Wruck. "I believe fully in transparency and accountability in leadership. My goal for this unit is to make you all the most well-trained and lethal defenders possible."

Maj. Wruck ended her speech by thanking her family and leadership for all of their support.

"I want to thank all of you for trusting me with this responsibility," said Wruck. "I take it very seriously and I will do you proud."
