912th Aerial Refueling Squadron getting reactivated at March Air Reserve

Col. Udo "Karl" McGregor is the commander of March's 452nd Air Mobility Wing, the reserve unit that flies the base's KC-135 and C-17 missions. While the 912th will be under the larger command of the 92nd Air Refueling Wing at Fairchild Air Force Base in Washington, McGregor will oversee its day-to-day operations.

There is also the possibility of other active duty squadrons coming to the base. But McGregor said he doesn't foresee March ever becoming an active duty base again.

That's going to be some strange duty for the 912th since there are no support functions at March such as are found on all active duty Air Force bases.
The commander of the 912th ARS will be Lt. Col. Brice Middleton.
