Kids Get Deployed at Goodfellow
Approximately 50 children from Goodfellow Air Force Base and the San Angelo Independent School District will participate in a mock deployment this Saturday at 7 a.m. at the Vance Deployment Center.
Children will begin arriving at Jacobson Gate and then be escorted to the Vance Deployment Center. The children will move to Camp Sentinel, the field training area and their “deployed location,” where they’ll meet other participants, receive snacks and T-Shirts and be greeted by the commander of the 17th Training Wing, Col Michael L. Downs.
Operation KIDS Spring 2017 is a joint annual event conducted by Goodfellow Air Force Base and the San Angelo Independent School District to host the children, some of whom are from families facing economic challenges. Operation KIDS Spring 2017 is one way Goodfellow Air Force Base endeavors to maintain its good relationship with the community while providing an opportunity for children to have fun.
