Note from Brig. Gen. Slocum

Congratulations !!

This is a huge step towards securing the 127th Wing and Selfridge ANGB's

The Department of Defense announced today that from the all of the ANG
Fighter Wing's - only five (5) now remain on the short list in consideration
for bed down of the next two (2) operational F-35 squadrons in the FY22-23

Selfridge/127th Wing is one of those five in contention to house and operate
the nation's newest and most advanced fighter aircraft.

What's next ?  The USAF is planning to conduct a 2 week site visit of each
of the five locations in the Jan-Mar 17 timeframe.  

The final announcement of the two selected locations is planned for Spring

Again - congratulations to all of you. Your hard work, dedication, and
professionalism have opened up this amazing opportunity to set Selfridge on
a course to be the tip of the spear - leading the USAF and SE Michigan for
the next century.

In your service - Respectfully,

Doug "Odie" Slocum, Brigadier General, MIANG
127th Wing Commander
