The 157th Air Refueling Squadron at Pease Air National Guard Base has a long history of service to the military. The group provides support for aircraft worldwide, and has played a large part in the recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The citizen soldiers who serve in the Guard are highly trained to operate and maintain the current fleet of KC135R refueling tankers stationed there. I had a chance to observe a refueling mission, and the opportunity to report on the ribbon cutting of the new ten million dollars operations building at the New Hampshire base.
A short video clip of the ribbon cutting is available below. You can also listen to a special report on the ceremony commemorating the building’s opening by clicking on the listen arrow above or download link below.
