JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas --

Col. Terry W. McClain, 433rd Airlift Wing commander, officiated an assumption of command ceremony by passing the 433rd Medical Group guidon to Col. Michael C. Brice here July 13.

McClain praised Brice’s record of thoroughness and handling of medical documentation, and how he was stratified highly in performance evaluations compared to his peers.

After accepting the guidon, Brice addressed a few topics. He also spoke about how and why he was assigned here, and his mission priorities for the group. He talked about the “MILE” acronym, which is Managing resources, Improving the unit, Leading people, and Executing the mission.

He ended with “I’m really grateful I got this job, I know the kind of people you are, we have really great leadership here,” said Brice. “I’m just here to help.”

Brice is returning to the Alamo Wing. He served as an optometrist in the 433rd Aerospace Medicine Squadron before leaving in September 2014 to command the 310th Aeromedical Dental Flight at Buckley Air Force Base, Colorado, and the 934th Aeromedical Staging Squadron, Minneapolis-St. Paul Air Reserve Station, Minnesota.
