WHAT’S YELLOW RIBBON?

The mission of the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program (YRRP) is to promote the well-being of National Guard and Reserve members and their families by connecting them with resources throughout and beyond the deployment cycle. Through YRRP, service members, and those who support them, have access to programs, services, and resources and referrals to minimize stress and maximize resiliency during all phases of deployment and reintegration. The next Yellow Ribbon events are scheduled for Jan. 24-26, 2014 and Feb. 21-23, 2014 at locations to be determined. For more information please contact the 452 AMW Yellow Ribbon representative, SMSgt. Jo Carrillo, Josephine.carrillo@us.af.mil or 951-655-2571.

CITY OF MORENO VALLEY PLANS FOR CAcTUS AVENUE WIDENING PROJECT NEAR MAIN GATE

The City of Moreno Valley will start construction to widen Cactus Ave in approximately two weeks and continue through January 2014. The construction area will start where the north-bound, high-speed off ramp from I-215 meets Cactus Ave. all the way through to Veterans Way. This may cause some disruptions with entering the installation and possible traffic delays. For now, the main gate will remain open as usual.
However, the project will be monitored for the duration of the construction in order to ensure the safety of the employees of March Air Reserve Base and the citizens of Moreno Valley. Please be patient and cautious while operating your motor vehicle in and around the construction zone.
