Tyndall hosts visitors

TYNDALL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- More than 30 community leaders last week attended a briefing about the future arrival of an additional F-22 Raptor squadron. The purpose of briefing community leaders was to keep them informed of the changes the base is currently undergoing, the projected changes in the year ahead, fiscal responsibility and environmental protection. The F-22s are coming from Holloman Air Force Base, N.M.
