BILOXI, MISS. — Keesler Air Force Base will have a new commander this summer.

Brig. Gen. Brad Spacy, 81st Training Wing commander, has been named director for logistics, installations and mission support for the European Air Force command at Ramstein Air Base in Germany.

Base officials are expecting a change of command ceremony about mid-August.

Col. Patrick Higby, who is the deputy commander of the White House Communications Agency at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C., will take over at Keesler.

Spacy took command at Keesler in May 2012. Keesler earned the 2013 Commander-in-Chief’s Installation Excellence Award recognizing the top U.S. Air Force base in the world.
