Leaders from the community visit and learn from security

Chris Goerke and John Reichert check out the weight and feel of an unloaded rifle belonging to the 932nd Airlift Wing's Security Forces Squadron. They and many local civic leaders took part in visiting the Air Force Reserve Command unit in Illinois during a special Belle-Scott civic leader engagement held the middle of August at Scott Air Force Base. To help make a better working relationship between the city and Scott, the Belleville Plan, which is now the Belle-Scott committee, was created years ago to make a stronger bond between the base and area leaders. Recently the 932nd Airlift Wing set up part of the hangar and a C-40C plane for civic leader visits from mostly St. Clair County's civic and business leaders. The local group was served snacks, toured facilities, met medical staff and heard a mission briefing. The C-40 planes of the Air Force Reserve Command unit in Illinois are used to transport our nation's civilian and military leadership from the 932nd AW and 126th Air National Guard touched on the role of both the Guard and Reserve at the base located near Belleville. The Belle-Scott Committee is comprised of local community leaders who meet with Scott Air Force Base officials on a recurring basis. (U.S. Air Force photo by Maj. Stan Paregien)
