New Robins Commander calls base "efficient and effective"

The new Commander of Robins Air Force Base says he feels "right at home" after two months on the job.

Col. Jeffery King described the operations at Robins as "efficient and effective".

The Houston County Commissioners gave him an official welcome at Tuesday's meeting.

King said employee safety efforts at Robins are going well, and described the relationship between management and the unions as "strong".

He said the budget will be one of the biggest challenges ahead.

King said, "I think Robins Air Force base, along with every other installation today, is dealing with the larger budgetary woes that surround Sequestration, and a declining budget. We have to make tough choices between roads and grounds or supporting operations, but at the end of the day, taking care of airmen is very, very important."

King came to Robins from Kadena Air Force Base in Japan. Commanders typically serve two year assignments at Robins.
