The 301st Fighter Wing reopened the wing headquarters building 1654 after over two years of closure due to renovations on Feb. 7, 2022.

The reopening of the wing headquarters building has marked the end of many support offices providing service in temporary space across the installation and a positive outlook for providing ease of customer service.

“The move has been a transformational experience,” said Master Sgt. Erin Bernik, 301st Fighter Wing Occupational Safety specialist. “Not just for our office, but for all the agencies that have been housed in temporary structures for the past few years.”

The newly renovated building features updated offices, technology, and new training spaces that holds a focus on customer service and training.

“Being displaced from our usual place of business has been difficult and we had to learn how to operate with limited resources,” said Bernik. “Now, we have much more space to conduct training courses and meetings, all within our own training room which will streamline our lines of effort with our mission to train and deploy combat ready Airmen.”

The headquarters building will not only house some wing staff helping agencies, but also customer support under the 301st Mission Support Group that are maximizing the building’s new features.

Senior Master Sgt. James Cavin, Force Development superintendent, said, “Our new multi-use computer lab allows Airmen additional resources and to connect with others. Another investment was done on our testing center, which will allow us to continue to provide numerous testing opportunities for our 301st Fighter Wing members, along with our Navy, Marine, and Army members.”

A centrally located headquarters building means customer service offices will be close, which is essential for convenience and for connecting those offices that have been separated for over two years.

“Being back all together again in a single location, we have already doubled the number of customers,” said Cavin. “The feedback has been very positive, but even more important, the squadron is able to have deeper conversations and come together as a family.”
