Spouse luncheons ongoing for Team March

Staff Sgt. Michael Harmon, 452d Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, describes the C-17 Globemaster III’s unique capabilities and demonstrates how the cargo doors open and close to allow the crews to upload various sizes and types of cargo. This was March’s first Spouse luncheon and tour to help familiarize military spouses about the wing’s mission.

Chris Mahaney, wife of Col. Samuel Mahaney, 452d Air Mobility Wing commander, hosted the second Spouse Luncheon, in a March Air Reserve Base hangar, for about 20 Team March spouses, providing them with the opportunity to meet some new faces and reconnect with friends, May 23.

After lunch, Team March pilots, loadmasters and boom operators, who took time away from their busy schedules to help with the event, took the group on a tour of the KC-135 Stratotanker and the C-17 Globemaster III. The aircrew eagerly welcomed the spouses to their “office” and answered non-sensitive mission-related questions – they wanted to paint a picture for the spouses so they have an idea of what their military-halves do during a typical flying mission.

“I’m just excited to learn more about the airplanes and enjoy the day,” said Christy Hammers, spouse of Tech. Sgt. Michael Hammers, 452d Security Forces Squadron. “I’m excited to learn more about what the men and women of the Air Force have done. We are very thankful for what they do for our country.”

Theresa Goode, spouse of Lt. Col. Kenneth Goode, 729th Airlift Squadron, said she had never been inside a KC-135 before, since her husband flies the other aircraft.

“I know a little bit about them from what my husband told me, but I never realized boom operators lay on their stomachs, while doing their jobs — that’s pretty awesome,” she said.

These regular luncheons and tours areopen to all enlisted and officer spouses to provide a social and informational atmosphere.

“They are so the spouses are more keyed in on what’s going on at March, for their benefit and for their families,” said Mahaney.

The next spouse luncheon is scheduled for June 25 and will include a presentation from the Yellow Ribbon coordinator. To sign up for the event, or for more information, contact Chris Mahaney at chrismahaney57@yahoo.com.
