Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT), Mitt Romney (R-UT) and Rep. Rob Bishop sent a letter to Col. Jon Eberlan, Commander of 75th Air Base Wing at Hill Air Force Base, Friday, congratulating him on the opening of the base’s new Software Sustainment Center.
“This new software facility will ensure that Hill is fully prepared to sustain the workload for the F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter and accommodate Hill’s substantial projected growth,” the letter reads. “The state-of-the-art facility will provide vital capabilities for the Air Force to enhance readiness and handle future challenges. It will be a critical asset to the U.S. Air Force and reflects Hill’s central role in providing for the common defense of the United States.”
The letter was hand delivered to Hill AFB Friday. The full text of the letter can be read here.
