Getting to know you - commanders meet Tacoma

Wyn Elder, 62nd AW commander, as they are welcomed by members of the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber of Commerce April 12, 2012, at Hotel Murano in Tacoma, Wash. The chamber hosted an Air Force Commanders Reception to introduce the commanders of the three primary Air Force units on McChord Field to the local community. "I really enjoyed the opportunity to attend the (Tacoma-Pierce) County Chamber commanders meeting with my fellow McChord Field (commanders)," said Colonel Bowers. "While I think this is the first time we've been part of this great event, I hope it won't be the last. Speaking with these influential and dedicated local community leaders was extremely beneficial for me, in hearing their concerns and answering several questions. Additionally, it allowed me to thank them for the phenomenal support they give to 446th AW Airmen and all the personnel assigned to JBLM." (Courtesy photo)
