USAFE leaders to Saber Nation: ‘The future is bright’

Even if you weren’t present at last Friday’s all-call or part of the official tour, two of the highest-ranking commissioned and enlisted Airmen in this hemisphere applauded your dedication to service.


U.S. Air Force Gen. Frank Gorenc, U.S. Air Forces in Europe and Air Forces Africa commander, and Chief Master Sgt. James Davis, USAFE and AFAFRICA command chief, toured Spangdahlem Oct. 18, their first visit since assuming their respective leadership roles in August.

Among their many stops, they visited the 726th Air Mobility Squadron to meet the Airmen who support the air transportation mission and the 52nd Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal Flight. Gorenc even tested out the 726th AMS deicing simulator while Davis test drove EOD’s bomb disposal robot.


“As far as the base is concerned, we have a lot of mission partners on this
Base. The AMC mission continues to perform spectacularly as part of the
en-route system for the entire United States Air Force, working through a
surge and preparing very well for flow to and from the AOR.”


“I’m thrilled to be here in Saber Nation,” Davis said. “The things we’ve been told and the things we’ve seen really do typify who you are and what you’re doing on a daily basis. I want to say ‘thank you.'”
