104th Fighter Wing Student Flight takes on Landscaping Community Service Project

Release Number: 020809

35 Air National Guard members of the 104th Fighter Wing's student flight program will take part in a community service project to landscape the property at South Middle School (30 W. Silver St. Westfield, Mass.) on Sunday Aug. 2, between the hours of 9:00 a.m. to noon.

The student flight is comprised of the newest members of the 104th Fighter Wing who complete a six-month rotating curriculum which indoctrinates and familiarizes them with the military while preparing them for basic training. The Student Flight was looking for a way to get involved in the community and has begun an initiative where they will complete a new community service project every three months.

Master Sgt. Douglas Daponde, the programs coordinator said, "This is a way for the students to give back to the community and also a way for the community to understand and recognize what the 104th Fighter Wing is about."
