1/3/2012 - ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- Col. Dawn Wallace was selected be the new commander of the Readiness Management Group here
Additionally, Lt. Col. Patti Frisbie, Interim Program Manager for RMG Detachment 3, MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., was selected to be the new RMG deputy commander.
Wallace has vast experience in the Air Force Reserve, serving in Individual Mobilization Augmentee, Traditional Reserve, Air Reserve Technician, and Active Guard and Reserve programs. She served in Air Force Reserve positions at Homestead AFB and Headquarters Air Force Reserve Command before coming to the Readiness Management Group.
"The RMG is a unique organization, in our structure and our mission," said Col. Stephanie Gass, current RMG commander. "Col Wallace doesn't just understand this, she has been integral to the Group's effort to improve partnerships, standardize our processes, and lift service levels. She's the perfect choice, and she and Colonel Frisbie will be a great team. I'm excited for them both and the RMG."
Frisbie served as an Individual Mobilization Augmentee in a number of positions before becoming an Active Guard and Reserve Airman as the Program Manager for RMG Detachment 26 at Peterson AFB, Colo. Frisbie said she was both surprised and excited to be going to RMG headquarters. She calls the opportunity a chance to share her "boots on the ground" detachment experience at headquarters, further "empowering" the RMG team. "We're experiencing greater partnership and synergy between headquarters and detachment staff as we continue to fine-tune our operations for the future," she said.
"Col Frisbie is the right person, for the right place, at the right time," said Wallace. "Together we will continue to deliver even better support to our IMAs and their chains of command, build even stronger partnerships with AFRC and ARPC, and collectively ensure every member of 'One RMG' is appropriately mentored, career developed, and provided the tools necessary to accomplish the mission today, and into our future."
Gass will be the new Director of Manpower, Personnel and Services, at Hq AFRC, here.
The mission of the RMG is to seamlessly integrate war-time ready Reserve forces into the Air Force mission, supporting both steady-state and contingency operations. The change of command is scheduled Jan. 13 at the Museum of Aviation.
