USAF EC remembers 9-11

The events of Sept. 11, 2001, are remembered around the world. At the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center on Fort Dix, N.J., six American flags flew at half-mast in honor of the nearly 3,000 victims from that fateful day. The USAF EC, in a sense, now gets its name from what happened on Sept. 11 because as a response to the terrorism that caused the attack the United States began the Global War on Terrorism soon after. The USAF EC, on a daily basis, trains Airmen who are deploying to fight in that global war. And it is because of that expeditionary training that the USAF EC went from the Air Mobility Warfare Center to the U.S. Air Force Expeditionary Center in 2007.
