To all USAF Expeditionary Center Enterprise Airmen,


Since the start of this year, we have operated in unprecedented conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Chief Berg and I are incredibly impressed with your resiliency, your commitment to our core values and your dedication to the mission.  In spite of current challenges, you continue to enable global mobility operations in the most contested and ever-changing environments while generating Airpower … from the Ground Up!  We know you are looking forward to celebrating America’s Independence Day and hope that you can spend this time with family and friends while staying safe and ensuring you are ready should our Nation call. 


As we mark 244 years of independence for the United States of America, we acknowledge that none of this could have happened without the continued service of the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who are willing to stand and fight in the defense of freedom.  On this day, we especially want to thank you for all your hard work and service to our great country.


Happy 4th of July!


With deepest respect,



JOHN R. GORDY II                                               KRISTOPHER K. BERG, CMSgt, USAF
