Lt. Col. Raymond Fortner, commander of the 741st Missile Security Forces Squadron at Malmstrom AFB, Mont., was relieved of command on Tuesday because of "a loss of trust and confidence” for establishing and maintaining “an unhealthy command climate," according to a base statement. Fortner, who will be assigned to another position at Malmstrom until he rotates to another duty location, assumed command of the unit in July 2017. Maj. Cody Elliott is the unit's interim commander.
