CAVALIER AIR FORCE STATION, N.D. --
The 10th Space Warning Squadron hosted an open house June 11, 2016, on Cavalier Air Force Station, North Dakota.
Members of the surrounding communities were given the opportunity to tour the facility and participate in activities hosted by a variety of units.
“Our ability to open our doors and show the surrounding community what Cavalier Air Force Station does helps solidify the relationship we already work at cultivating every day,” said Tech. Sgt. Richard Swank, 10th SWS security forces operations NCO-in-charge.
The 319th Security Force Squadron from Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota, provided a military working dog demonstration and weapons display. The United States Customs and Border Protection brought a helicopter and all-terrain vehicles. Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota, provided a UH-1N Huey from the 54th Helicopter Squadron and provided an explosive ordnance disposal demonstration courtesy of the 5th Civil Engineer Squadron.
Community support is a vital part of a successful military base.
“Cavalier, Walhalla, Mountain, Langdon, Edinburg, and Park River provide invaluable support to our people, which helps us accomplish our mission,” said Swank. “This is a small gesture to show our gratitude for their support.”
