TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. --
A staff delegation representing Florida Senators Marco Rubio and Rick Scott gathered for a meeting with 325th Fighter Wing and mission partner leadership at Tyndall Air Force base, Florida, to discuss the “Installation of the Future” progress March 31.
Members of the STAFDEL, consisting of policy advisors and legislative assistants for the senators, were briefed on the current status of Tyndall’s $4.9 billion rebuild and discussed future plans for the base that includes becoming the home to three new F-35A Lightning II squadrons.
“The support Tyndall has received from Senator Rubio and Senator Scott has been outstanding,” said Col. Greg Moseley, 325th FW commander. “We were excited to share an update on the base’s rebuild, which will continue to be a critical asset to both our nation’s defense and our local economy in the long term.”
With such deep-rooted support from the surrounding community, Tyndall leaders want to ensure the public is kept up to speed on how Tyndall is going to transform and make positive long-term impacts.
“The military-community environment here has always been one of cooperation, and we are committed to continuing to steward those relationships as Tyndall’s mission evolves,” said Moseley. “Our best ambassadors are our Airmen and families, many of whom live, work, and shop in the local community.”
Tyndall continues to take steps toward becoming the cutting-edge 21st-century installation that the Air Force needs, and leaders say it wouldn’t be possible without the enthusiasm and support of the base’s neighbors.
“Our surrounding communities have viewed Tyndall as an integral piece of the puzzle,” said Moseley. “We are grateful for their support and look forward to continuing to meet the air dominance needs of our force.”
