Four AFSOC counties partner

HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. -- Two counties in Florida and two in New Mexico that host Air Force Special Operation Command bases officially joined as sister counties through a proclamation ceremony at 1st Special Operations Wing headquarters Aug. 15. Civic leaders from Okaloosa and Santa Rosa counties in Florida and Curry and Roosevelt counties near Cannon Air Force Base, N. M., said the intent is to open lines of communication on key issues that affect the AFSOC communities. Topics that could be addressed included the preservation of ranges and means to help preserve the AFSOC mission. (Source: 1st Special Operations Wing Public Affairs, 08/16/12)
