• Looking back at 2008; looking ahead to 2009

    This UTA we start a new year. Looking back, we can be proud of our accomplishments in 2008; from our early deployments to include ASTS, SFS, APS, CES and others, to our early May air show where we played host to our Canadian neighbors. Operations and Maintenance deployed over the summer for an AEF assignment, and as a wing we began the long road of
