The 502nd Air Base Wing at Joint Base San Antonio has a new commander and local political and business leaders joined military dignitaries for the change of command ceremony at the base Wednesday morning.
Brigadier General Theresa Carter took command just months after the 502nd was relocated to San Antonio after the BRAC realignment and replacing Carter is Brigadier General Robert La Brutta, who comes to the 502nd with management experience.
La Brutta was most recently the director of manpower and personnel for the U.S. Central Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Florida.

The bill allows investor-owned utilities, municipal co-ops and retail electric providers to establish discount programs similar to the one that has proven so successful in San Antonio the last couple of years.
