Barksdale seeks honorary commanders
Nominations must be turned in by no later than Sept. 12
BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La. — The 2nd Bomb Wing is seeking leaders in the Shreveport/Bossier City community to serve as honorary commanders.
Honorary commanders spend two years with a Barksdale Air Force Base unit to learn about various parts of the base’s mission and the role the military plays in the nation’s defense.
“As an active community member, Barksdale AFB is committed to promoting and maintaining open and positive relations with our community,” says a statement from the base. “The Honorary Commanders Program fosters strong relationships and communication between base commanders and community leaders. The program also educates civic leaders about the Air Force and Barksdale missions.”
The 2nd Bomb Wing commander will select honorary commanders from among nominated community leaders who are business leaders, non-federally elected or appointed officials, mayors, chamber of commerce-type group members, school principals, Military Affairs Committee members and other community leaders.
