CC Message – Dedication to mission

TINKER AIR FORCE BASE, Okla. -- You don't have to look far to see the results of our hard work. As the news reports of North Korea flexing their muscles hits the stands, the United States has responded with muscles of our own.

As the B-52s, B-2s and F-22s fly over South Korea they remind our adversaries of our world-class capabilities. When I see our aircraft flying, I'm reminded it's because of what you do on a daily basis that gives our nation the ability to fly, fight and win by protecting ourselves and our allies.

From PDMs on the B-52s and F-22s, the parts managed and repaired through our supply chain and maintenance organizations, the avionics, software and missiles that stand ready at a moment's notice, please don't forget that what you do for our country pays dividends in monumental ways.

Our fiscal environment maybe bleak, but your dedication to the mission is more apparent than ever. I continue to let our decision makers know the impact furloughs will have on our workforce and our military readiness. I'm proud of the overwhelmingly positive response I've received from the workforce. We're executing our mission by delivering parts, software, engines, missiles and aircraft as we've always done and achieving it with the unprecedented quality required to meet our warfighter's needs.

Again, thank you for everything you do for our Air Force and our Nation.

Keep 'em flying...it's what we do!
