GEN. DAVID GOLDFEIN, AIR FORCE CHIEF OF STAFF: “Scott Airmen, Community Partners, Families and Friends: 229 years ago, our founding fathers signed their names to the United States Constitution. And for the past century, Scott Airmen signed their names to history—supporting and defending our Nation’s most fundamental principles. Today, you serve in the contrails of Airpower’s elites ... aviation pioneers like Corporal Frank Scott and airlift giants like General Tunner and General Cassidy. Nearly everything about the American way of war changed these 10 decades, except one: there’s no bridge too far for Scott Air Force Base. On behalf of your 660,000 brothers and sisters in blue, Happy 100th Anniversary!”
A few of the key leaders took time to congratulate Scott on celebrating 100 years.
