8/25/2009 - DAVIS-MONTHAN AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. -- The 355th Fighter Wing Commander here at Davis-Monthan, Brig. Gen. Paul T. Johnson, was promoted to the rank of brigadier general Aug. 14, and symbolized the event with a pin-on ceremony here Aug. 24.

The commander was nominated for the appointment to brigadier general in May this year with 37 other colonels across the Air Force. Confirmation from the Senate made his general-officer promotion official.

General Johnson arrived at D-M in July 2008, scheduled for a two-year assignment as wing commander. He is responsible for one of the largest installations and flying operations in the United States Air Force, with more than 6,000 Airmen, 2,000 civilians, and several dozen aircraft. He serves as the senior officer responsible for organizing, training and equipping a 22-squadron wing.

He graduated from Dresden High School in 1976, earned his commission from Officer Training School, and joined the Air Force in May 1985. He is a command pilot with more than 2,500 hours in the A-10 attack aircraft.

General Johnson and his wife, Patricia, live on base. They have two sons, Eric and Chris, and a daughter, Jessica.
