The objective of this important program is to bring together leaders of the

military and civilian communities in an informal platform designed to foster

mutual understanding and establish friendships.

To increase civilian understanding of the military way of life.


I am honored to have been inducted into the Honorary Commander at Fairchild AFB. It is a position I take very seriously and want to let the Airmen know how much we in our community appreciate what the do each and everyday for us to keep our freedom and way of life. Many people ask me about the Honorary Commander Program and what it involves. I tell them it adds a special connection between the military and the local community enabling us to share experiences and insights.I have been fortunate these last 3 years to have been able to have many full day Immersion Tours with a number of Group Commanders, a few of them are: the 92d Mission Support Group & K-9's, SERE, the 92d Maintenance Group, Ops Group and the Flight Simulators.


It allows the Honorary Commanders to have hands-on experiences

with the many Groups and Squadrons activities and responsibilities

and we can then share those experiences and the respect and

understanding we have gained with our local community.


Our local city governments and businesses work hand in hand with Fairchild to make our community a better place to live, to work, and to retire. This program is an important to the specialpartnership we here in Spokane have with Fairchild AFB, the US Air Force, and all branches of the military...
