After recently moving to Utah and becoming the installation commander at Hill Air Force Base, I’ve seen something unique to the people of Northern Utah. The patronage they provide to the base is overwhelming and the relationship we have with our communities is without a doubt, very special. I want to express my thanks for the outstanding support the community provides.
Recently the Top of Utah Military Affairs Committee sponsored the Salute to the Nation’s Defenders Picnic and the Ogden Raptors Hill Appreciation Night. Both of these events were hallmarks of the genuine support we receive from communities surrounding the base. I appreciate the committee’s dedication and truly cherish our relationship.
The Top of Utah and Salt Lake City Military Affairs Committees toured the Utah Test and Training Range to see portions of our mission that they help support. I enjoyed showing our community leaders our Air Force capabilities, as well as having them engage with our military members.
Due to the nature of our command, many people in the surrounding communities work on the base and have a huge stake in helping accomplish the mission. Many in the community are the government employees and contractors who make up Team Hill - this relationship is truly extraordinary. It’s an inspiration to see surrounding cities, small towns and businesses in the area backing the base.
I sincerely appreciate the tremendous support that our community provides and I’m excited to continue working with all of our community partners.
Thank you for all you do for the men and women of Hill AFB.
