I’d like to share a story about a person I met a few weeks ago. I was at a local restaurant about to have lunch when an older gentleman came up to me and introduced himself. I was wearing a Fighter Country Partnership polo and he noticed (and liked) the logo. I invited him to sit down and I proceeded to tell him about Fighter Country Partnership and what we do to support Luke Air Force Base. He mentioned that he had served in the Air Force back in the 1970s and that his grandson was currently stationed at Luke.
FCP Visions Fall 2016 is now available as a digital download. This issue profiles new Brig. General Brook Leonard taking command at Luke Air Force Base, a moving piece about Luke AFB honoring the victims of 9/11 on the 15th anniversary earlier this month, an update on FCP’s work from the desk of FCP Executive Director Ron Sites, and much more!
