Barnes Air National Guard Base, 104 Fighter Wing - Westfield, Mass -- The winter of 2008 marks the last opportunity our unit members have had to nominate their employers for an orientation visit to an Air Force training exercise. 30 employers traveled to Savannah GA with the last training deployment of the A-10s to see the men and women of the 104th Fighter Wing hard at work.
With the F-15s now a permanent part of the 104th fabric, we are once again invigorating the ESGR Boss-lift program, and 30 employers will be able to fly down to Tyndall Air Force base to see the men & women of the 104th participate in the Weapons System Evaluation Program during this winter's deployment.
The employers will fly down on a military aircraft on April 14th and return the 17th. They will have a rare opportunity to learn about the Air National Guard and their roles in the combat Air Force; learning first-hand the impact they have in the defense of our country by supporting their members in uniform.
Their will be a nominal cost for employers to participate, which will cover a few meals and incidentals, all other expenses will be provided through the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve program.
If you would like to nominate your employer to attend, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and nominate your employer.
Please send us their name, address, phone, and e-mail address. There are some restrictions and space is limited on this trip. Please coordinate with your employer before submitting their names. The deadline for submission is March 5th.
