Lt. Col. Carolyn Dale assumed command of the 45th Aeromedical Evacuation Squadron in a ceremony held here Saturday, April 6.

Dale had been the deputy squadron commander and chief flight nurse at the 45th AES prior to taking command. She originally came to MacDill in 2018 from Joint Base San Antonio Lackland, Tx., where she served as the chief flight nurse at the 433rd AES.

Presiding over the ceremony was 927th Operations Group commander, Col. Caroline Evernham.

“I’m very excited to see where Dale is going to take the 45th AES,” Evernham said. “She follows a line of very amazing commanders and she will be an amazing commander, too,” said Evernham.

Before the ceremony concluded, Dale addressed her Airmen with her visions for the future.

“This is not my squadron, this is our squadron. It is not my future, it is our future, and for that I want to thank you all for this opportunity,” she concluded.
