HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah -- This holiday season provides us all a great time to reflect on the things we’re thankful for. Personally, I treasure all the opportunities the Air Force allowed me to experience and the friends, and family, I made over the years.

More recently, serving as your installation commander throughout this most challenging of times showed me the true resilience, grit and determination our Airmen and Guardians bring to the defense of our nation… and I’m both humbled and thankful.

Every day each of our 75th Air Base Wing teammates make positive differences in the lives of fellow warriors, former warriors, family members and strangers alike to make Team Hill a truly remarkable assignment.

So, during this Thanksgiving holiday I want to wish you all a safe and relaxing time to share with those closest to you. Let’s make sure you plan ahead, stay alert and let’s all come back from the holiday recharged and ready to go.

Again, it’s an honor to serve you every day and I thank you all for your service.

Happy holidays!
