WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio --

445th Teammates,

This Memorial Day may look different in the way of celebrations and ceremonies but the one constant is our ability to take a moment and reflect on the brave men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice so we could enjoy an incredible way of life. I hope you have the opportunity to honor their memory and sacrifice by connecting with the ones you love whether that is virtually or in a small gathering. I am proud to serve with you and amazed at your contributions to our great nation. Please thank your family and friends for supporting you and making sacrifices so you may serve.

Have a safe and peaceful weekend!
