MCCONNELL AIR FORCE BASE, Kan. --
A MESSAGE FROM COMMANDER:
I hope this message finds you and your families well. As you all know the United States is still in the midst of a COVID pandemic, with no clear end in sight. We are optimistic about the new vaccines becoming available, but the roll out will still take several months, and possibly even years, to get us back to normal operating procedures.
With that being said, flexibility has always been a strength of our Airmen, and we are asking for some of that flexibility now. We rescheduled our December UTA due to budget constraints coupled with increasing numbers of COVID cases in the state of Kansas. With the number of cases still rising, and to avoid last minute adjustments, we are pre-emptively moving the January UTA to 23-24 January. This will let us have a better sense of the budget as well as allow time for family gatherings that could result in unintended COVID exposure.
Please continue to remain flexible as we may need to move these dates again. As always, commanders should utilize all dates in January as needed to meet mission requirements. If you have any questions, I encourage you to seek your unit commander or first sergeant for further guidance.
Thank you for all that you do. We will persevere through this pandemic together.
