The 911th Civil Engineering Squadron is paving the way, quite literally, for the much larger C-17 Globemaster III. With new aircraft come new responsibilities, and the 911th CES is tasked with transforming the base for the C-130 Hercules to C-17 conversion.
“We build it, maintain it and protect it,” said Master Sgt. Brenda Smith, 911th Civil Engineering Squadron first sergeant. “That's our mission statement and that's exactly what we do. We're very fundamental to the base. There is almost nothing they can't do. It's impressive to watch. They just do so many different things and it's awesome.”
