JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-LACKLAND, Texas (AFNS) --

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. David L. Goldfein visited Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland March 11 to observe current operations surrounding COVID-19.

"I have one objective while I'm here," Goldfein said, "to be a very good listener."

Goldfein wanted to focus on the effectiveness of support between the base, the Department of Health and Human Services and the city of San Antonio.

"I want to go back to Washington and be able to advocate on your behalf," Goldfein said during a closed-door meeting with key representatives from those organizations.

The meeting allowed for topics of discussions to be communicated, in order to work together as a community, by using the lessons learned to prepare everyone for future emergencies.

Goldfein’s wife, Mrs. Dawn Goldfein, also met with JB San Antonio-Lackland’s key spouses to discuss various topics facing the local military families and address their concerns about the COVID-19 evacuees currently housed on the base.

Mrs. Goldfein, along with medical experts, provided answers to the many questions presented and discussed the direction the Air Force is taking to ensure the safety of all involved.
