Community Connection events focus on spring events throughout JBSA

502nd Air Base Wing Public Affairs

Got questions about what’s going on around JBSA this spring?

The 502nd Air Base Wing is looking to spread the word on Joint Base San Antonio’s three upcoming Community Connection Events, which will be focused on sharing information about the major events during the Spring timeframe.

These events will contain minimal formal briefings and ample question-and-answer time for the community to ask questions to a panel of knowledgeable experts from across the installations. This is a chance to learn more about what’s going on around JBSA this Spring.

Before each event, an information slideshow will be running, which will also be available online by using a displayed QR code. A public affairs moderator will open each event before handing it over to either Brig. Gen. Russell D. Driggers, commander, JBSA and 502nd Air Base Wing (JBSA-Lackland and JBSA-Randolph) or Col. Bryan L. Logan, deputy commander, JBSA and 502nd ABW (JBSA-Fort Sam Houston) for opening comments.
