Capt. Charles Kuba, a native of Gibsonia, was relieved as reserve component commander Dec. 4 at a change-of-command ceremony at the National Naval Aviation Museum aboard Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla.
Rear Adm. Shawn Duane served as guest speaker. He spoke of the myriad of challenges and tragedies befalling Pensacola this past year, but noted ending on a high note in celebrating the service of Kuba.
“Kuba is a man of character who does the right things for the right reasons,” Duane said. “Over the past 10-plus years, he has served as a role model for thousands of young officers coming through this program on their way to getting Wings of Gold.”
