Hello everyone, and welcome to the Jan. 24th issue of Nellis-Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! As Australia nears the end of a long, hot summer and devastating wildfire season, Airmen at Nellis AFB joined their counterparts in the Royal Australian Air Force last week to prepare a load of fire suppressant and other critical supplies for shipment to the fire zone. “The Australian people are comforted to know that in times of need, we have great friends like the United States who are ready to lend a hand,” said Chief of the RAAF, Air Marshal Mel Hupfeld.
