Honorary Commander Program

The Honorary Commanders’ Program provides commanders with a means to effectively educate participants on the armed forces missions of the 122nd Fighter Wing and the Air National Guard. The program encourages an exchange of ideas, experiences and friendships between key leaders of the surrounding communities and the 122nd Fighter Wing. Commanders and community leaders can positively impact community and base interaction by building and strengthening community relationships.
The Honorary Commanders’ Program helps create an open flow of communication between the surrounding communities and commanders by showcasing the base’s capabilities, future leaders and the caliber of men and women serving at the 122nd Fighter Wing.
The program is designed to: -- Increase public awareness and understanding of the mission, policies and programs of the armed forces -- Build and improve relationships with members of the local community. -- Showcase the proud and dedicated Blacksnakes. -- Encourage members of the community to tell the Blacksnakes and military services stories -- Keep a pulse on community concerns and attitudes. -- Increase community/military involvement with installation, mission-partner and civilian activities. -- Foster a family environment with the 122nd Fighter Wing and the surrounding communities.
All participants in the program should have three things in common: 1) An active role in their community 2) A drive to share their military experiences with those within their sphere of influence. 3) Should have a positive impact on public support for the 122nd Fighter Wing.
Each honorary commander serves a two-year term. During this time, participants are invited to participate in various installation and unit events. All interactions between commanders and honorary commanders are designed to provide a better understanding of military personnel, programs and operations.

Did You Know?

 
 

In the 1990's, the 122nd Fighter Wing became the first unit in the Air Force to receive the night-flying systems that enabled the fighters to be fully mission-capable 24 hours a day. With the night-vision goggles and the ability to fly with covert lighting, (which effectively "blacks out" the jets to observers on the ground or in the air,) the targeting pod and the Situational Awareness Data Link (SADL), the unit's F-16C+ jets became among the most capable fighters in the United States Air Force fleet. 

The Blacksnakes use of green snake eyes symbolizes the night-vision capability we use to complete our wartime mission! BRRRT!
