This event has been designated as an Alternate Duty Location by 412th Test Wing Commander, Brig. Gen. E. John Teichert, for all 412th TW Team Members.

Employees who wish to refrain from participation can remain at work or be granted appropriate leave. Please contact the Civilian Personnel Office at 661-277-3840 for questions. Civilian employees are encouraged to attend and bring their family members.

The event will be a Branch Elementary School and Desert High School Excused Absences Day; parents who have students at these schools can take their children to this official school event and it will not count as an absence. Concession and memorabilia will be available for cash purchase from EAFB Private Organizations.
