This month the 109th held a walk to remember ceremony to acknowledge our fallen airmen. The walk gives the 109th family a time and a place to remember and cherish the memories of their fallen friends. A bench with a tree of life was dedicated in memory of SrA Alla V. Ausheva and flags were presented to the family of SrA Stephanie J. Seney. In attendance were the 109th Commander Col. Michele Kilgore, Command Chief Denny Richardson, Congressman Paul D. Tonko, Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara along with New York State troopers.
The New York Wing - Civil Air Patrol annual encampment has been happening all week here on base. Today, Cadets were able to fly on a C-17 from the 105th Airlift Wing! #C17 #CAP
Our LC-130 crews get to see it all!! It’s only a 40 minute flight from sunny 60 degree weather overlooking Kangerlussuaq’s gorgeous fjord to the cold winter wonderland of Raven Camp. Raven Camp is the primary training facility and the site for Maintenance Recovery and Barren Land Survival school.
What a beautiful site that our C130 crew has on the way to Greenland! #109AW #PoletoPole #ANG #RavenGang
Camp Raven 2019 is here!! Children of 109th members get to experience a week long camp full of fun activities. The best part is getting to see first hand what jobs their parents do!

In honor of the 75th anniversary of D-Day we stop to remember all the courageous service members across different branches and our allies as well. They bravely fought against the enemy risking their lives to fight for our great nation. Tech. Sgt. Stephen Girolami, of the 109th Communications Flight, has a personal connection to D-Day through his grandfather who just celebrated his 98th birthday yesterday. James “Stocky” Edwards, a highly decorated Word War II ace fighter pilot of the Royal Canadian air force, flew over the beaches of Normandy that day. As a young and brave 23 year old, Stocky led a squadron of Spitfires (Mk IX) as bomber cover for the D-Day invasion and then continued for several months after. “Our job as Spitfires was to cover the troops landing and the crossing.” Stocky reflected. “I was very successful at my navigation and my lead; I would say it was all luck.” Stocky was made a Knight of the French National Order of the Legion of Honor awarded to him for his actions on D-Day. #DDay75 To hear more about Stocky’s time during World War II, you can watch his interview here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfuYQDTl5tU&vl=e
