SALT LAKE CITY — Sutherland Institute would like to join a grateful community in recognizing Col. Jennifer Hammerstedt, who has served at Hill Air Force Base as 75th Air Base Wing Commander since June 2016. She is moving to Washington, D.C., to serve in an assignment at the Pentagon.
As Hill’s installation commander, Col. Hammerstedt was responsible for the Air Force’s second largest base. The wing oversees more than 1,300 facilities while providing installation support for Ogden Air Logistics Complex, Life Cycle Management Center, Nuclear Weapons Center, 388th and 419th Fighter Wings and over 50 other associate units totaling 23,000 personnel. The 75th Air Base Wing also has base support responsibility for the operation of the 1,490-square-mile Utah Test and Training Range.
Such a task requires a special kind of leadership, and Sutherland wishes to thank Col. Hammerstedt and wish her great success in all future responsibilities.
