Peterson bids farewell to Special Operations Aviation Command; Evans welcomed | fayobserver.com

Maj. Gen. Erik C. Peterson has spent his career in the Army aviation.

For most of his more than 30-year career, he’s flown helicopters in support of both conventional and special operations forces.

But the general’s biggest impact as of late hasn’t come from a pilot seat.

At the helm of U.S. Army Special Operations Aviation Command, Peterson operated with a “subtle touch on the controls,” and a nuanced understanding of force management and readiness issues, officials said.
