Due to a lack of confidence, Colonel Michael Shreves was removed from his position as 27th Special Operations Group commander.
Colonel Michael Shreves, the commander of the 27th Special Operations Group at Cannon Air Force Base in New Mexico, was relieved of his duties due to a loss of confidence, according to a spokesperson for the base’s 27th Special Operations Wing. The decision was not based on any character issue or indiscretion but rather on the high standards expected of leaders in the 27th SOW. Lieutenant Colonel Charles Hodges, senior director of the 27th SOW Commander Action Group, will temporarily assume the role of interim commander. The 27th Special Operations Group is responsible for training and readiness related to special operations aircraft. Colonel Shreves, who has an extensive military background, including combat experience, had previously served as the Resolute Support Mission Liaison to the US Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan.
