Brig. Gen. Michael T. Brewer, 412th Test Wing commander, talks with David McBride, NASA Dryden Flight Research Center director, at the Antelope Valley Board of Trade Business Outlook Conference Feb. 22 at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds in Lancaster, Calif.

Both Brewer and McBride gave presentations highlighting the exemplary work achieved by all base members every day. Brewer stressed how the aircraft and technologies developed at Edwards exemplify the Air Force mission of “Global Vigilance, Global Reach and Global Power” are a direct result of the significant work accomplished by the outstanding men and women of Edwards for the warfighter.

“At the end of the day, there is a young Airman, Soldier, Sailor, Marine sitting out somewhere,” said Brig. Gen. Michael Brewer, 412th Test Wing commander. “Our job is to take care of [them] and we’re going to do that.”

During the presentation, Brewer also emphasized the importance of the mutual and compatible growth between the Antelope Valley and Edwards. In total, Edwards generates an estimated $1.48 billion economic impact on the area annually.
