Task Force tours Tyndall

PANAMA CITY, Fla. – Members of the Florida Defense Support Task Force toured Tyndall Air Force Base last week to survey the damage caused by Hurricane Michael. The base sustained considerable damage, but officials say Tyndall should be up and running by January. Jay Trumbull, state representative and chair for the task force, said the significant need at Tyndall will be met with a significant structural rebuild. The task force, which has an interest in all military installations in the state, offers support on a state level. Rep. Neal Dunn said the rebuild will mean a brand new Tyndall, updated to the needs of the 21st century. Currently around 35 percent of infrastructure on base has significant damage.
