Season's greetings! Published Nov. 30, 2023 By Col. John F. Benson 403rd Wing Commander KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. -- As we approach the holiday season, it’s important we take a moment to reflect on your outstanding accomplishments this year. First, let me say it’s a privilege to be among 403rd Wing of Choice Airmen and I’m proud of what you do for America. In my few months as your commander, 403rd Warfighters aggressively met short notice taskings and deployments while overcoming fiscal uncertainties. Regardless of the challenge, you adapted and persevered to accomplish the mission. Whether it’s tactical airlift, weather reconnaissance, aeromedical, medical, maintenance or mission support, you’ve clearly demonstrated why we continue to be the Wing of Choice! Thank you for your dedication, professionalism, and service. Well done! As we celebrate the holidays with our friends and families, please remember those who are currently deployed, sacrificing time with their families in service to our great Nation. Make every effort to support them and their families—be a solid Wingman. Wishing you all a joyful holiday season and eagerly anticipating the opportunities and successes that await us in the new year! Thank you! Happy Holidays!
