We are pleased and honored to continue to support team TACAMO and work the day-to-day challenges.”

The majority of the work for this option will be performed at Tinker Air Force Base, Okla. Work will also be executed at Travis Air Force Base, Calif.; Naval Air Station Patuxent River, Md; and Offutt Air Force Base, Nb.
