Happy Holidays, Team Dover!

DOVER AIR FORCE BASE, Del. --
Happy Holidays, Team Dover!

On behalf of the leadership at Dover Air Force Base, thank you all for dedicating your time and talent in service to our nation and the preservation of freedom world-wide in 2016. The holiday season is a wonderful time to reflect on our accomplishments while relaxing with friends and family. Together—the 436th and 512th Airlift Wings, AF Mortuary Affairs Operations, Joint Personal Effects Depot, Armed Forces Medical Examiner System, and Dover’s other Mission Partners, supported by our Dover, Kent County, and First State of Delaware communities alongside numerous volunteer organizations like the United Service Organization—we are an amazing family that makes Dover a very special place!

As we close out a year of excellence, please relax and enjoy your Holiday Season amongst teammates, friends, and family. Please remember to be good wingmen and watch over one another to ensure that everyone returns safe and rested in anticipation of another wonderful year ahead!

Finally, please join Erin and I, Chief Sarah Sparks and Sam, along with the rest of your Dover leadership, in keeping our deployed Airmen, joint Service members, and their families, as well as anyone in need, in our hearts and thoughts. We all wish you and yours many blessings in 2017!

Aim High—Dover Pride!

Sincerely, Colonel Ethan Griffin, USAF
