Desert Lightning News Digital Edition – August 3, 2018

Welcome to the Desert Lightning News Digital Edition! This month, we have the 2018 edition of “The Book.” This is the annual mission update for Davis-Monthan AFB, which includes information for each organization on D-M – mission statements, demographics and responsibilities for each squadron, unit and other groups on base. For base personnel, The Book serves as a reference; for residents of Tucson and surrounding communities, it’s a guide and resource for you to learn more about the mission of the various units at Davis-Monthan AFB – an economic powerhouse in our community.

Click on the link below for a “flipable” PDF version of Desert Lightning that you can read on your computer or mobile device. Hard copies of the newspaper hit the streets on base and in Tucson starting Aug. 3rd. Pick one up when you’re out and about, and “Like” our Facebook page for daily updates on news coming out of D-M and other military and defense installations in the desert southwest. It is our privilege to serve you – have a safe and restful weekend! #aerotechnews #dmafbnews
