Grand Forks Air Force Base has new commander

GRAND FORKS — Grand Forks Air Force Base has a new commander.

A ceremony was scheduled Wednesday for Col. Paul Baumann to take the reins from Col. Christopher Mann.

Mann was a vice commander who took over temporarily in mid-march when then-commander Col. Tim Bush was relieved of command for failing to meet physical fitness requirements.

Baumann comes from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Anchorage, Alaska, where he was a wing vice commander.
