WSMR Promotes Commander

Nov 29, 2013

The commander of the Army's White Sands Missile Range in southern New Mexico is being promoted.

The Las Cruces Sun-News reports that Brig Gen. Gwen Bingham will be getting a second star Monday when she's promoted from brigadier general to major general during an afternoon ceremony.

Bingham became the range's commander in September 2012.

The promotion could mean a new assignment, but Bingham says she isn't aware of any impending changes any time soon.
