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
