The Air Force General Officer Management Office announced March 9 that Air Force Brig. Gen. Linda S. Hurry will replace Air Force Brig. Gen. Allan E. Day as commander of Defense Logistics Agency Aviation at Richmond, Virginia.

Since August 2016, Hurry has served as the director of expeditionary support for the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, Texas, where she oversees the delivery of worldwide installation- and mission-support capabilities to customers at the headquarters, major command and installation levels.

Hurry has performed as an aircraft maintenance officer at Vance Air Force Base, Oklahoma, and the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Complex, as well as a logistics readiness officer at wing, major command and combatant command levels. She served as the commander of the 92nd Logistics Readiness Squadron at Fairchild Air Force Base, Washington, when it won the Daedalian Award for being the best logistics readiness squadron in the Air Force and the Gerrity Award for being the service’s most effective logistics unit.

Hurry was also selected as a Secretary of Defense Corporate Fellow and spent a year with Caterpillar, Inc. before serving as the executive assistant to the commander of U.S. Transportation Command. Prior to her current assignment, Hurry was the commander of the 635th Supply Chain Operations Wing at Scott Air Force Base, Illinois.

The change of command ceremony is yet to be determined. Day will continue his career as the director of logistics, civil engineering and force protection for Headquarters Air Force Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.
