PERU, Ind. (WLFI) – The commander at Grissom Air Reserve Base near Peru, Ind. is under investigation and has been removed from his post.

The Air Force said Colonel Donald Buckley’s superiors lost confidence in his ability to command the 434th Air Refueling Wing. Grissom’s vice commander is temporarily leading the base.

Buckley has spent less than two years as commander overseeing more than 2,000 Air Force reservists and 16 K-C-135 Strato-tanker refueling planes.

The Kokomo Tribune reports Colonel Rob Palmer said Buckley is working as a technician at the base.
