Defense Secretary James Mattis on Tuesday stopped by Mountain Home Air Force base to meet with the 366th Fighter Wing leadership and Airmen after a visit to Vancouver, Canada.
Secretary Mattis held a town hall meeting as an opportunity for airmen to ask questions about Air Force operations.
“This visit was an excellent opportunity to show-off the Gunfighters to the Secretary of Defense. He was impressed,” said Col. Joe Kunkel, 366th Fighter Wing commander, in a news release. “It was great to hear Secretary Mattis honor our contributions and articulate how important Gunfighter Airmen are to the defense of our great nation!”
