90-person Air Force unit moving from NM to Colo

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. (AP) - A 90-person Air Force unit is moving to Colorado from New Mexico.

The Air Force said Thursday the 4th Space Control Squadron will move from Holloman Air Force Base outside Alamogordo, N.M., to Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs this year.

The move is expected to begin this month and be completed by December. Air Force officials say the shift will save money and improve efficiency.

The Holloman unit will join the 76th Space Control Squadron already at Peterson. The two squadrons have similar missions and both operate communications systems.
