Commander's Action Line

Two-way communication is vital to the success of our wing and its mission. Oftentimes people have ideas that will make the wing better. Other times, you may be frustrated and feel issues need to be addressed. As always, I request you attempt to resolve problems at the lowest level possible. If that won't work, however, I have established a Commander's Action Line. It is not my intent for this to become a complaint line, but rather a way for me to hear what's on your mind. For example, you may want to tell me about someone who provided you excellent service. Good or bad, pass it along to us at 298-8000. As always, thank you for what you do every day!
Commander, 47th Flying Training Wing
