Mississippi lawmakers applaud Keesler Air Force Base
Three Mississippi politicians expressed gratitude today at Keesler Air Force Base for meeting its commitment to provide full manpower for the 815th Airlift Squadron, better known as the Flying Jennies.
U.S. Senators Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, alongside Congressman Steven Palazzo, were informed that the Flying Jennies have reached full operational capability and are fully staffed to meet tactical combat airlift missions.
All three lawmakers led the fight to convince the Air Force to overturn the decision and restore the unit to full strength.
