INCIRLIK AIR BASE, Turkey --

A message from Col. John Walker, 39th Air Base Wing commander. "We are working hard to ensure we have what we need to sustain and continue our mission here. Tough situations and learning to adapt in a moment's notice is nothing new for us titans. The Airmen with the 39th Air Base Wing are cut from a superior cloth. I'm so impressed with their professionalism, compassion and dedication to the mission. Keep doing what you're doing."

  

Base personnel have had and continue to have access to hot meals and running drinkable water. Locations with air conditioning have been designated as cool spots to provide personnel an area to cool off, receive WiFi, charge devices and sleep. At this time base personnel are still receiving inbound mail. Deliveries of food, water, and fuel continue to be received to sustain the 39th Air Base Wing mission.
