JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, Alaska --
The winter dark ages are starting to subside, somewhat, & we remain
diligently engaged in our Air Dominance (POWER) mission both in Alaska and
It is a great time to be a Citizen Airmen - the new POTUS is tasking his new
SecDef for a readiness assessment with an eye towards asking the Congress for
supplemental $$ for both FY17 & FY18.
This is all goodness because I know we often times have more military
volunteerism then days and dollars. On the civilian side, ART positions are
exempt from the hiring freeze which will allow us to move forward with some of
our staffing options.
So thanks for getting the mission done with our 3 WG PARTNERS & thanks for
rolling with the punches.
See you at the Airmen of the Year (PEOPLE) celebration on 11 February!
All the best - Beldar
