Team Hill, as the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, I am grateful for your service to our great nation. Each of you are a valuable member of Team Hill.  The mission of the 75th Air Base Wing, as well as those of our 60 mission partners, could not be accomplished without you.

This Thanksgiving I will reflect on the many things I am fortunate to have as I am very thankful for everyone in my life. I will spend valuable quality time with my family and friends while enjoying some great family traditions. The holiday season can be a challenge for some as they may not have the opportunity to be with close family and friends. I ask you to be great Wingmen by reaching out to those individuals and inviting them to be a welcome part of your Thanksgiving celebration. Our Wingmen culture and resiliency is alive and well, so let's ensure we take care of our Airmen.

Please take the time to enjoy this break and recharge. Remember, Thanksgiving is a time for reflection and giving thanks for all the things we are fortunate to have in our lives. Like many of you, I am thankful for family, the freedoms we enjoy in this great nation, and for our fellow brothers and sisters in arms, who are sacrificing their freedoms to protect ours.

Enjoy the long holiday weekend, but please do it safely and responsibly! I want to see all of you back safe and sound.

Again, thank you for all you do for our United States Air Force and our nation!
