The 18th Air Force Commander, Maj. Gen. Kenneth T. Bibb Jr., relieved Col. Jaron Roux, the 437th Airlift Wing Commander, on April 1 for lack of confidence in his ability to command, following an investigation into and substantiation of allegations that Roux engaged in unprofessional relationships and fraternization.  Roux has been reassigned to Headquarters, Air Mobility Command, Scott AFB, Ill.


“Commanders are placed in a special position of trust and are expected to exemplify the highest standards of conduct personally and professionally," said Bibb. “I must have complete confidence in our wing commanders to lead Airmen, maintain good order and discipline, and execute the mission in an environment where professional relationships and the Air Force core values serve as the foundation for our actions.”


Col. Christopher M. Robinson, 437th Airlift Wing Vice Commander, will serve as the interim commander effective immediately.
