Congresswoman Nancy Mace visited McEntire Joint National Guard Base, May 5, 2024, for an engaging and informative day alongside the dedicated Airmen of the South Carolina Air National Guard.

During her visit, Congresswoman Mace shared lunch with Airmen and got to hear firsthand about their experiences, challenges, and aspirations.

Additionally, Congresswoman Mace received a comprehensive briefing from the wing commander, focusing on mission readiness and force recapitalization. The briefing delved into the strategic objectives, ongoing initiatives, and future operations of the base, providing Congresswoman Mace with a deeper understanding of the vital contributions made by the SCANG to the nation's defense.

One of the highlights of the congresswoman's visit was an F-16 incentive flight. These flights are a valuable tool to help our civic leaders gain firsthand experience of the operational capabilities and responsibilities of the SCANG airmen. This experience offered valuable insights into the critical role played by the 169th Fighter Wing in supporting national security objectives.

Congresswoman Mace's visit underscored her commitment to supporting the military community and ensuring the readiness of our nation's armed forces.
