[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E541] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] WELCOMING THE 492ND ATTACK SQUADRON ACTIVATION UNIT TO MARCH AIR RESERVE BASE ______ HON. MARK TAKANO of california in the house of representatives Friday, May 3, 2019 Mr. TAKANO. Madam Speaker, I rise today to welcome the 492nd Attack Squadron Activation Unit to March Air Reserve Base (ARB). The Activation of the 492nd Attack Squadron and the Assumption of Command ceremony will be held on Friday, May 10th, on March Air Reserve Base. While I will be unable to attend, I want to send a special welcome to the new unit. The introduction of the 492nd Attack Squadron will provide an additional 14 instructor sensor operators, 17 maintenance positions, 21 instructor pilots, and 61 positions with the Commander, Director of Operations, and the First Sergeant. This expansion will bring added capabilities to March ARB, and will enable the Air Force Reserve Command's Fourth Air Force to attract and retain incredible new talent as it fulfills its various missions in the region. The expansion sends a strong message to our community that March ARB serves a vital strategic role, not only for California but also the Air Force Reserve at large. Again, I want to welcome to the new 492nd Attack Squadron Activation Unit to March Air Reserve Base. I am continually humbled by the dedication and hard work that the men and women at March ARB perform each day, and I am excited to see our capacity at March ARB expand even further. ____________________
