TEAM GOODFELLOW, thank you all the hard work and dedication in preparation for the inspection that is here.

Now is the time for us to show the inspection team just how good we are.

Let's finish strong and show them our professionalism along with that world famous West Texas hospitality.

To the AETC Inspector General Team, WELCOME to Goodfellow Air Force Base and the San Angelo Community.

You will find that TEAM GOODFELLOW is ready for the trifecta combination of the Compliance Inspection, the Environmental and Occupational Health inspection, and the Logistics Capability Assessment. Our joint team will prove to you our expertise in training the world-class firefighting and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance warriors.

As you will see Goodfellow is continually morphing and adding new capabilities to our infrastructure. Multiple construction projects across base are ongoing to help increase our dorm capacity, update dining facilities, consolidate and update our library and education center, along with starting a new complex for intelligence training. Toward the north end of base you'll see preparations for our newest static displays. We are repositioning our AT-6 trainer in front of the wing headquarters building to honor our heritage and preparing to place our newest acquisition of a Global Hawk UAV.

While you're here you'll have a chance to witness our fantastic relationship with the community of San Angelo as we conduct the Annual Santa's Market and Community Appreciation Day on Nov. 19. I encourage you to come out and get a little Christmas shopping done before the holiday season arrives if time permits.

We're ready and glad to have you here.
