This year mother nature tried to shutdown the event that was planned as a pig roast with outdoor games. BIG rain –no worries. The group secured a hanger location and brought the party inside. Chief Kirby said thank you and wanted all to know the day was a success and that the service members and their families were all appreciative.
Money for this event comes from our own Bob Szymkiewicz. He started his ATC career in the USAF in 1980. Bob loved the Air Force and still enjoys being a controller. He thought this would be a great way to pay it forward. “These folks are supporting several wars and are often away from family for long periods. The Air Force is what made my life and I want these controllers to know they are appreciated.”
