142ND fIGHTER wING covid-19 uPDATES AND rESOURCES

Members of the 142d Fighter Wing,

COVID-19 is impacting all of us . . . Remember that we are all in this together.  I know that these may be extremely difficult times for you and your family.  As your leaders in the 142 FW make decisions, rest assured that we are continually mindful of you, and your loved ones.  We will communicate important updates to you through a variety of means, and have established this COVID-19 info center for Wing members and families.  We also need you to communicate with us.  Keep your supervisor informed of your health situation, the health situation of your family members, and if you need any assistance.  Finally, it is vitally important you continue to heed guidance from local, state, and national leaders, as well as your military chain of command.  We didn’t ask for this challenge, but this is the one we face, and I’m confident we’ll get through this together.  v/r,
