Last month we bid farewell to the Small Air Terminal.

A unit that traces its origins to the 135th Aerial Port Flight that had been a part of the Maryland Air National Guard since 1976.

“If I had to quantify the legacy, it would be in the friendships and relationships that we developed. It was in the people that we were with, as opposed to where we were.” said United States Air Force Master Sgt. James Shepard, an air transportation specialist.

Do you know your Warfield history?

One of the founders of the modern Maryland Air National Guard was United States Air Force Maj. Gen. Ted Warfield III.

He was a man of diverse talents, a devoted father, war hero, leader, politician, aviator, and a charter member of the 104th Fighter Squadron.

In World War II, Gen. Warfield's P-51 Mustang was hit by ground fire, and he spent four days in an open life raft surving on rations of water and candy bars.

"I focused it on the setting sun and pointed it toward the plane," he told The Baltimore Sun in a 1980 interview. "The plane banked, turned and flew directly over me. A crewman waved. I cheered. I waved. I even saluted."

“I have complete confidence that [Ippoliti is] going to take this squadron and do great things well above and beyond what I could do.”

Airmen from the 275th Cyberspace Operations Squadron conducted one of the first-ever enduring defensive cyber training missions in a Title 32 mobilization status on an installation’s network.

Training missions of this caliber normally require a Title 10 status due to the additional authorities needed. Our Airmen were able to complete this training internally which allowed for more flexibility.

Today on we honor and remember the millions of lives lost in the Holocaust and victims of Nazism. On this solemn day, we must never forget the lessons of Holocaust history.
