  • NOTAM: Welcome to Fiscal Year 2021

    Welcome to Fiscal Year 2021 – the year of violent execution for the 152nd Airlift Wing.

We start the year at a high OPTEMPO, with MAFFS winding down, COVID response ongoing, and final preparations for our two major inspections -- AFMAA in November and UEI CAPSTONE in December. While the Wing is busier than ever focusing on Readiness, I want to ensure our focus is not diverted by societal issues that could negatively impact our force. With that in mind, I would like to highlight two potential pitfalls, 1) election season and 2) domestic violence.
