Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 3, assigned to the Harry S. Truman Strike Group, welcomed the Navy's first female CVW commander during CVW-3's change of command ceremony Jan 4.
During the ceremony, which was conducted at Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana, Va., Capt. Michael S. Wallace, commander of "Team Battle Axe," was relieved by Capt. Sara A. Joyner.
"We have an amazing air wing and the squadrons make us the lethal fighting force we are," said Wallace, a native of Brookings, Ore. "The air wing is sharp and ready to go. I look forward to watching [Joyner] lead this team we built together."
