Support Governor Palin At SarahPAC

Juneau, Alaska - Governor Palin and Lt. Gen. (AK) Craig E. Campbell, Adjutant General of the Alaska National Guard, met Monday with General Carroll H. “Howie” Chandler, Commander of the U.S. Air Force (USAF) in the Pacific. General Chandler briefed Governor Palin on current events in the USAF, the status of USAF assets in Alaska, possible deployment levels in 2009 for Iraq and Afghanistan, and the value of training in Alaska.
“It was truly an honor to meet with General Chandler,” Governor Palin said. “His distinguished 35-year military career and previous years as commander of the Alaska Command give him the experience necessary to truly understand the strategic value of military assets in Alaska - particularly the benefit of Alaska airspace and facilities for readiness training exercises. I look forward to working with General Chandler in the future.”
“General Chandler is a good friend and an Alaskan at heart,” Lt. Gen. (AK) Campbell said. “Since his days as commander of the Alaska Command, Gen. Chandler has always looked out for the best interests of the military in our state and he is a tremendous ally for Alaska issues in Washington, D.C.” Alaska is home to both Eielson and Elmendorf Air Force Bases, at least 10 different types of aircraft, about 9,000 airmen and about 12,000 family members. Aviation training occurs year-round with “Red Flag” exercises involving international aircrews conducted every three to four months.

    You can see the blue star flag in her window which signifies that her son is on active duty, and you can see it reflected in the glass on her desk. Great picture with that added effect.
