“When you hear the words from him about what it’s doing for his young airmen and morale, that’s everything we’re all about,” Ron Sites, executive director of Fighter Country Partnership said. “We’re all about enhancing that quality of life and doing everything we can to support this mission here at Luke.”

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.
James “Rusty” Mitchell is the Director, Community Initiatives Team, Luke Air Force Base, Ariz. As the liaison between the base and surrounding communities, he coordinates dialogue and interaction to facilitate compatible growth in areas that impact Luke Air Force Base. His daily engagement with nine municipalities, Maricopa County, and the State of Arizona has profoundly advanced the ability of the base to coexist with its neighbors. Mr. Mitchell served twenty-two years in the Air Force flying fighters from Europe to the Far East, retiring in 1998 as a lieutenant colonel.
