President Donald Trump toured the base Wednesday afternoon. Colonel Brent Hyden with the bases Program Management Office believes this is a chance to show the commander in chief what they need most.

“We are eager to put our best foot forward and show were a great investment its critical for national defense and we’ve got a really good plan for going ahead and proceeding with the rebuild. We just need the greenlight,” said Hyden

President Trump is expected to do a windshield tour of the base and from there on he will be hosting a rally afterwards at the Aaron Bessant Park Amphitheater.
