689th Combat Communications Deactivates in Ceremony

689th Combat Communications Deactivates in Ceremony

Robins AFB
Office of Public Affairs

The 689th Combat Communications Wing will stand down in a ceremony here Wednesday at 9 a.m. 

The inactivation is the result of Air Force force structure changes, including a reduction in combat air forces, tied to the President’s FY13 budget.

Two civilian employees and 33 military members will be affected. The civilians will transfer to the 5th Combat Communications Group here. The military members will be reassigned or, if eligible, may retire or separate.

With the inactivation of the wing, the 5th Combat Communications Group here will realign as a direct reporting unit under Air Force Space Command’s 24th Air Force.

“Combat communicators are an integral part of 24 AF’s cyber capabilities,” said Col Joseph Scherrer, 689th commander. “The Air Force will continue the legacy of Combat Communications excellence through the 5th CCG.”

Candlelight Vigil for Fall Georgia Officers

Candlelight Vigil for Fall Georgia Officers

A candlelight vigil will be held Thursday (May 16) in the base chapel from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m., in honor of Georgia’s fallen law enforcement officers.  Guest speaker for the event is Sheriff David Davis of Bibb County Sheriff Department.

 The service will honor law enforcement officers in the state Georgia, Army, Marines, Navy, Coast Guard, K-9 units and Security Forces members who have given their lives in the line of duty over the past year. The vigil is one of several events occurring this week in honor of National Police Week.

National Police Week has been in existence since 1962 when then President John F. Kennedy signed Public Law 87-726 into effect.  The law designates May 15 of each year as Peace Officers’ Memorial Day in honor of the officers who have given their lives in the line of duty. This is the 50th anniversary of the National Police Week observance.
