  • Take care of the family, the mission -- Tigers Lead!

    It’s an absolute honor to be part of your team and shared legacy. You are the best in the world at what you do – never forget that. I want to take a moment to discuss 23rd Wing priorities as we prepare for the next fight and continue to defend this nation, our allies and partners from all enemies.
