Early Sunday morning, as a brisk breeze flowed through Weber canyon, rifles fired and Taps sounded the empty Hill Air Force Base airfield, in honor of one our nation’s heroes; Lt. Col. Edison Phillips Janney. The commemoration was held to grant Janney’s last wish; for his ashes to be spread across an Air Force runway.
A reminder email will go out in a few days to Hill Air Force Base employees who have not yet reported vehicle emissions information into the Air Force Web-based system called ECARS (Employee-Vehicle Certification and Reporting System).
The email, from email@example.com, will contain a link to ECARS where employees will be prompted to enter information about their driving habits on the base. Employees can enter their information anytime at the ECARS link: https://apims.af.mil/apims/ecars.
