(WLAX/WEUX) – Citing issues with the command climate and allegations of misconduct, the commander of Volk Field Air National Guard base is relieved of her command.
Brigadier general David May, the top officer in the Wisconsin Air National Guard, removed colonel Leslie Zyzda-Martin, citing he “lost confidence in her ability to command.”
The Air National Guard didn’t provide details of the misconduct, but said investigations are ongoing. Zyzda-Martin was named commander of the base in Juneau County a little over a year ago. Lt. Col. Tom Bauer, who currently serves as the vice commander at Volk Field, will act as interim commander until a new commander is selected.
