Volk Field commander relieved of duties after investigation

CAMP DOUGLAS, Wis. (AP) – There has been a change of command at the Volk Field Air National Guard Base in Wisconsin. Col. Leslie Zyzda-Martin has been relieved of her duties as commander of Volk Field at Camp Douglas. The National Guard said in a statement that Brig. Gen. David W. May ended Zyzda-Martin’s command Monday due to “lost confidence in her ability to lead.”

The guard’s statement said the decision was made following investigations that revealed issues concerning command climate and alleged misconduct.

Officials were not more specific. 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.
