WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio --

Col. Bartholomew G. Bonar passed the guidon of the National Air and Space Intelligence Center’s Global Exploitation Intelligence Group to Col. Duane J. Diesing as part of a July 26 change of command ceremony here.

GX is responsible for executing analysis of signals intelligence, human intelligence, open source intelligence, and foreign materiel to create integrated intelligence for NASIC and the nation.

Col. Parker H. Wright, National Air and Space Intelligence Center commander, officiated the ceremony in front of a crowd of more than 300 NASIC employees gathered in the Center’s Intelligence Production Center.

“The prospect of replacing Bart was a daunting task and one that I did not relish.  So I started the way I always do when looking for talent…by asking for recommendations from people I trust,” said Wright.  “I didn’t know Du, but his name kept coming up time and again.  And as I reviewed his records, I knew he would be a great fit. I’m confident Du will take the baton firmly from Bart and continue the race with GX at a full clip.”

Prior to taking command, Diesing was the chief of the Engagements Division in the Intelligence Directorate of United States Southern Command, Miami, Fla., where he served as the command’s lead for intelligence engagements across the Caribbean, Central America and South America.

“To the men and women of the Global Exploitation Intelligence Group I am excited to be part of this team, and I look forward to learning about each squadron and mission area, and getting to know each of you,” said Diesing. “Your expertise is well respected across the community, and I hope over these next two years to lead you in mission accomplishment while caring for and ensuring your deliberate development.”

Wright also shared a few words regarding outgoing GX commander Bonar, who plans to retire from the Air Force in October.

“Bart, thank you for your leadership of GX the past two years.  You are leaving the team better than you found it,” said Wright. “As you prepare for retirement in a couple of months, I can say with confidence that you’re going out on a high note, on your terms, and with what must be a great sense of pride.”
