Tinker Air Force Base -- Lt. Col. Lisette Childers became the new 72nd Security Forces commander at an appointment to command ceremony June 18.
   Held at the Tinker Club, approximately 125 Airmen and civilians attended to welcome the new commander.
   "Commanding a unit is the best job any officer could have," said Col. Childers. "The opportunity and challenge to lead the Air Force's finest personnel is what every officer strives for."
   Col. Childers, a career Security Forces officer, came to Tinker from the Security Forces Directorate at Air Force Headquarters in Washington, D.C., where she was the chief of Manpower and Organization.
   Commissioned in 1989 from the University of Wyoming, Col. Childers has completed nine assignments in 17-and-a-half years, of which six were stateside. This is her first assignment at Tinker.
   Col. Childers succeeds Lt. Col. Brian "Max" Dubroff who left in February for an assignment at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany, and Lt. Col. Joe Hogan, an Individual Mobilization Augmentee commander.
