Dear JBAB Teammate,
My warmest welcome to you and your family, and congratulations on your assignment to Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling (JBAB) – Sentinels of the Capital. This is an extraordinary time to be joining our team, and we're extremely excited to have you here! JBAB is an installation with a rich history, and you are joining a team that adds to that legacy every day. I hope you find this assignment the best you’ve ever had.
Much has changed on JBAB over the past two years. The Department of Defense made the decision for the first time ever to transfer Joint Base Lead Service, resulting in JBAB responsibility transferring from Navy to Air Force. We entered Initial Operational Capability on 1 October 2020, accomplished 126 significant milestones, and reached Lead Service Transfer Full Operational Capability on 1 October 2022. Additionally, with the transfer of JBAB to Air Force responsibility, the decision was also made for the 11th Wing, "The Chief's Own," to stand back up at JBAB. Over the past two years, we have been building our team, processes and programs. What you see today is a far larger Air Force footprint than what the base has had the past decade, and we're continuing to grow both in personnel size and in mission capability.
To those of you whose assignment is with any of our approximately 70 mission partners on the installation, what you do matters. Your missions are critical to our Nation and Allies. You should expect to receive exemplary base support from the outstanding teammates who make up "The Chief’s Own." We are continuing to build on lasting relationships with each of our mission partners. Your success in your respective unit is a success for the 11th Wing as the host unit to the installation and for all of Team JBAB. And, to the 11th Wing Flock, our critical missions of ceremonial honors, mission support, and contingency operations have lasting impacts in our Nation's Capital and around the world. Never forget the impact you have.
To all JBAB teammates, I ask that you do everything with H.E.A.R.T. – Honesty, Effort, Attitude, Respect, and Teamwork. Through these actions, we create a healthy environment and culture for everyone to thrive. You are part of multiple critical missions for the Department of Defense with worldwide reach and impact. Just as we rely on our hearts for life every second of every day, the Nation relies on you to be the best you can be in your respective mission sets here in the heart of the National Capital Region.
I look forward to meeting you and learning more about you as we bring Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling into the future – together.
CATHERINE M. LOGAN, Colonel, USAF
