Hill Air Force Base has been selected as the new home for the Air Force’s first operational F-35A Lightning IIs.

75th Air Base Wing’s Wingman Day on Nov. 20 was held to build team building during a variety of activities including recreation, service projects and other activities.

Wingman days are a needed opportunity to take the much deserved break, build camaraderie, discuss issues of concern, and strengthen individual and unit health and morale.
