908th delayed yet again

The 908th Airlift Wing has been delayed again.

The are now slated to leave on Wednesday, but officials are not optimistic about the volcanic cloud clearing for air travel tomorrow either.

For now, 908th leaders are keeping their members updated until they are able to deploy.

The 908th is deploying for about four months to provide combat air support to troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and the Horn of Africa.

The last time the 908th deployed to the desert was 2008.

The 908th is the only Air Force Reserve unit in Alabama.

My Photo
Name:

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 


As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
