COMPACAF extends holiday greetings
JOINT BASE PEARL HARBOR-HICKAM, Hawaii -- Fellow Airmen,
As we take time to celebrate the holiday season, David and I want to give you a very heartfelt "thank you" for all you and your families do to deliver mission success for PACAF each and every day.
During these first few weeks in command, I have had an opportunity to visit a few of our bases and talk with our hard working 46,000 PACAF Airmen. Your success has certainly been the command's success. I am overwhelmed by your accomplishments and humbled to be a part of the proud PACAF team.
PACAF Airmen have conducted a wide range of operations in 2014, participating in more than 50 joint and multinational exercises, saving lives and property during humanitarian aid and disaster relief missions, and establishing the Pacific Integrated Air and Missile Defense Center.
As you spend time with family and friends over the holidays, I ask that you remember our military members who are deployed or serving remote tours, and separated from their loved ones. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers as they continue to execute the mission thousands of miles away.
Each and every one of you are vital to accomplishing our mission here in the Pacific. Please take care of yourselves, your families, and each other. Happy Holidays to you and your families!
