“The commander of the 88 CPTS is responsible for leading the Air Force’s largest comptroller squadron with 143 personnel, a $445 million wing budget, a $52 billion accounting operation for Air Force Materiel Command, the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center, and 129 mission partners, as well as providing military, civilian, and travel pay services to 38,000 customers spanning a six-state region,” Richards said. 

During Justus’ tour, she also served as the director of staff for 18 wing staff agencies and the Air Force Band of Flight located at Wright-Patt AFB.  

During the ceremony, Richards thanked Justus for her leadership and contributions to the 88 ABW and wished her the best of luck in her Air Force career.  

“Lt. Col. Justus did an outstanding job of navigating the complex workplace dynamics and obstacles by leading with a people first attitude,” he said. “She tight-roped the difficult line of enhancing team cohesion and morale while upholding high standards.” 

Among her many accomplishments, Justus also led the “No Wrong Door” design, layout, and plan to relocate eight helping agencies, improving coordination of timely support services for 35,000 personnel. 

Justus spoke to the Airmen of the 88 CPTS, expressing her gratitude for their efforts over the last two years.  

“It is your hard work that paid off as we were recognized as the honorable mention for the 2024 Commander in Chief Annual Award for installation excellence,” Justus said. “Your jobs are not easy, but I hope that I was able to help advance you, your Airmen, and mission success during my time.” 

Moore, a Columbus, Ohio native, most recently served as the commander of the 17 CPTS at Goodfellow AFB, Texas. 

In that role, he oversaw the planning, obligation, and execution of funding for the Department of Defense’s largest intelligence training pipeline as well as it’s only fire academy.  

“Maj. Moore, we are extremely excited to welcome you and your family back to Ohio and to our team at Wright-Patt,” Richards said. “I have the utmost confidence that you will sustain the momentum this team has built over the last two years and lead them to even greater heights.”  

Moore thanked those in attendance while also addressing the Airmen of the 88 CPTS for the first time.  

“I look forward to working with each of you to deliver war winning capabilities through agile installation and mission support,” Moore said. “This unit has a culture and legacy of success. As we move forward together, my goal is to take care of each other, provide exceptional customer support, maintain readiness, and accomplish the mission through creativity and innovation. I look forward to learning from each of you and I cannot wait to get started here.”
