Chief Master Sgt. George Richey, 47th Flying Training Wing command chief, speaks on the importance of feedback in the Air Force, July 3, 2013. "Your feedback is a critical component to making Laughlin better," Richey said. "After all we are talking about making your mission better, making your resources better and making your base better because you are Laughlin!" Importance of Feedback

Every day, I talk to our Airmen – our officers, our enlisted, the hundreds of civilians, and the many family members who call Laughlin home – about their experiences here at the base. Not surprisingly, people have unpleasant experiences from time to time.
