This month, we have the 2019 edition of “The Book.” This is the annual mission update for Davis-Monthan AFB, which includes information for each organization on D-M – mission statements, demographics and responsibilities for each squadron, unit and other groups on base. For base personnel, The Book serves as a reference; for residents of Tucson and surrounding communities, it’s a guide and resource for you to learn more about the mission of the various units at Davis-Monthan AFB – an economic powerhouse in our community.
