Commander's Comments: Col Jason Knobbe, August 2020

MCCONNELL AIR FORCE BASE, Kansas --

Fighting Jayhawks,

 

It’s been a short period between the July and August drills, but let me assure you that your fellow Guardsmen have been busy.

 

Here’s a brief overview of the extraordinary work that was done over the past month.

 

The 184th Civil Engineer Squadron worked with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Marion and Council Grove Reservoirs to repair campgrounds that sustained serious damage during the 2019 floods.

 

Completed projects include a new boat dock, around 50 new RV electrical pedestals, and new roofs on about 15 campsite shelters and one large pavilion.

 

Their efforts saved the parks years of delayed openings, and the completed structures will be enjoyed by Kansans for years to come.

 

 

The 184th Security Forces Squadron is wrapping up their annual training. During their training, they connected with the Kansas Highway Patrol to learn how to use SWAT team tactics while entering buildings under dangerous conditions.

 

Their weapons skills and lethality are truly impressive which makes me glad they’re on our team.

 

Finally, the 299th Network Operations Squadron and the 184th Communications Flight partnered up to get the entire wing through the CHES e-mail migration.

 

I know this was a difficult transition for some of you, but these two organizations provided top-notch support during the planning and implementation phases.

 

Our communications network is stronger and more streamlined because of their hard work.

 

These are perfect examples of one of my top priorities – Strength Through Connections and Partnerships.

 

Appreciate all you do!

 

Col Jason L. Knobbe
