WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio – Air Force officials announced that Maj. Gen. Shaun Q. Morris has been nominated for promotion to lieutenant general and will become the commander of the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center headquartered at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio.
If confirmed, Morris will replace Lt. Gen. Robert McMurry, who has led AFLCMC since May 2017.
Morris is currently commander of the Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center, and Air Force program executive officer for Strategic Systems at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico. He is responsible for the lifecycle management of nuclear weapons systems supporting two legs of the nation’s nuclear triad, including intercontinental ballistic missiles, air-launched cruise missiles, gravity bombs and nuclear command, control and communications systems.
In his new position Morris will oversee the total life cycle management for aircraft, engines, munitions and electronic systems.
Morris was commissioned through the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1988. He has held a number of key acquisition and sustainment positions on Air Force space and weapons systems, staff positions on the Air and Joint Staffs as well as commander positions at the squadron, group, wing and center levels.
“I’m humbled to be considered for this opportunity,” Morris said. “Over the course of my career, I’ve had several opportunities to be part of the great team at the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center. I’m honored to rejoin this fantastic organization with its long history of developing, fielding, modernizing and sustaining the world’s greatest Air Force, as well as forging critical relationships with our allies and partners.”
The future plans for McMurry have not been announced at this time.
