Fallon Naval Air Station welcomed a new commanding officer at a change of command ceremony on Friday, March 18, 2016. Cmdr. Captain David Halloran relieved Cmdr. Captain Leif Steinbaughat, at the Fallon Naval Air Station.
Halloran stated he was looking forward to working with the Tribe and Cmdr. Halloran stated several times during his speech that Fallon is the best Naval Air Stations in the world and was excited to be here. Chairman George gave Halloran a warm welcome as the new commander to Fallon and he is looking forward to working with him and his staff.
