Col. Dennis D. Grunstad II will assume command of the Wyoming Air National Guard on June 2, at 8:30 a.m., at the Cheyenne Civic Center.

Grunstad, who will be promoted to brigadier general at a later date, will assume the duties of the Assistant Adjutant General - Air, from Brig. Gen. Donald A. Haught.

Haught will retire from the Wyoming Air National Guard during a ceremony at 1 p.m. on June 2. He is the president and owner of a mechanical systems firm in Torrington.

"I am confident Col. Grunstad will carry on the excellent work of Brig. Gen. Haught and that the Wyoming Air National Guard will continue to be prepared to meet whatever may come our way," said Maj. Gen. Luke Reiner, Wyoming's adjutant general.

Grunstad most recently served as the air liaison officer at the Joint Force Headquarters, in Cheyenne. Before that assignment, he was the commander of the 153rd Airlift Wing.

"It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I accept this opportunity to serve Wyoming's Air family. I look forward to the continued opportunity to provide leadership and direction for this great organization of Airman as we successfully meet all of our state and federal mission requirements," Grunstad said.
