Air Force-owned C-17s reassigned to Alaska Air National Guard

Col. Steven deMilliano, commander of the 176th Wing, Alaska Air National Guard, and Col. Christopher Niemi, commander of the 3rd Wing, U.S. Air Force, commemorated the change of assignment of eight C-17 Globe Master III aircraft based here during a ceremony on Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska, May 17. The two commanders took turns speaking to Airmen from both Wings about the transfer of the aircraft from active duty to the Guard and how the units will continue to support the C-17 mission together in the arctic and Pacific regions.
