TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. (AFNS) --

Travis Air Force Base welcomed Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force JoAnne S. Bass during a base visit March 24-26.

During the visit, Bass met with Airmen from multiple units across the base learning firsthand how Travis AFB accelerates change and demonstrates a culture of trust.

Bass met the Airmen who deployed in February to transport humanitarian goods in support of the Federal Emergency Management Agency relief efforts in Texas as well as Airmen assigned to the 921st Contingency Response Squadron who showed her combat equipment and suited her up in body armor.

“We never know when we are going to be called upon to protect, defend or support our amazing country,” Bass said. “I know by having conversations with the Airmen from Travis (AFB) that we are ready for any phone call that will require us to respond.”

During Bass’ time meeting with the 60th Medical Group, Airmen explained how their roles have changed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among the many other things Travis AFB Airmen showed Bass during her visit was the modernization of operations in the 60th Maintenance Group and the 60th Security Forces Squadron.

Airmen from the 60th Maintenance Group spoke to her about the modernization of processes in the 60th Aerial Port Squadron. The unit is working towards implementing Wi-Fi on the flight line and a virtual reality troubleshooting course to enhance mission effectiveness in real time.

While visiting with the 60th Security Forces Squadron, Bass learned about the mission defense team, acquisition process simplification and small unmanned aerial system.

“Dedication to accelerate change in modernizing our Air Force to what it needs to be in 10, 15, 20 years is important,” Bass said. “This is what I see happening at Travis.”

At the conclusion of her visit, Bass shared she felt inspired by the Airmen at Travis AFB.

“There’s a special feeling that’s hard to describe when talking to Travis Airmen,” Bass said. “I know I can trust each and every one of you to see the mission through. You all have shown me what it means to ‘Trust Travis,’ and trust is the foundation of leadership in our Air Force. Thank you for what you do day in and day out.”
