A feature from the Naval History and Heritage Command blog about NAS Whiting Field celebrating 75 years of military excellence:
Congratulatory message to NAS Whiting Field from Commander, Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE):
"I wanted to take a minute to congratulate our teammates at NAS Whiting Field. Today, they reached their 1000th consecutive day going ARI (alcohol related incidents)/DUI free. I can't stress enough how impressive this accomplishment is-it speaks to the leadership of Whiting Field and the commitment of our Civilians, Sailors, and families there to conduct themselves the right way both on and off duty. Bravo Zulu to all of you at Whiting Field-and thank you for setting the standard for all of us to follow."
Commander, Navy Region Southeast Rear Adm. Bette Bolivar congratulated NASWF in a statement earlier today.
