Cutline: Col. Roderick Cregier, Edwards AFB F-35 program director, talks to Honorary Commanders Apr 20 at the Joint Strike Fighter Combined Test Force. The Honorary Commanders event provided local civic leaders and representatives with a chance to see the JSF take off and a visit the Ridley Mission Control Center. The primary objective of the Honorary Commanders Program is to provide Edwards commanders with the capability to develop, promote and maintain a continuous working partnership with the surrounding communities. The program is an avenue for community partner leaders to learn about the Air Force mission, personnel, programs and operations. Likewise, base commanders and personnel will benefit from continued cooperation with the community and its key leaders.
