The 58th Airlift Squadron held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the unveiling of their building renovations, June 19, 2020.

During the renovations the 58th AS accomplished student training and utilized other facilitates until the complete overhaul was accomplished.

“I can speak for the whole squadron when I say we are really excited to be in our permanent home after being away for so long,” said Lt. Col. Michael Rasinski, the 58th AS commander. “Returning to our building has really boosted morale for the instructors and it gives the students a great first impression of the Air Force when they come here.”

According to U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Lucas Crumpton, the support flight superintendent assigned to the 58th Airlift Squadron, every interior room was touched from floor to ceiling.

“The facility has looked the same since I first came here in 2001,” said Crumpton. “The locations of offices were redesigned and relocated to better fit mission sets for student training. It’s great to have all our instructors in one place and the building is better fit for the C-17 aircrew and allows us to truly call it our home.”
