Friday, January 13, 2017

Sacramento, CA – Today, Assemblymember Frazier (D – Oakley) reacted to the news that the Air Force has finally decided to bring 24 new KC-46A Pegasus refueling tankers to Travis Air Force Base:

“I am pleased to hear that the Air Force has given Travis AFB the honor of taking on this new important refueling mission. I had the unique privilege last year of leading a coalition from the California Legislature to urge the Air Force to consider Travis AFB for the new KC-46A Pegasus refueling tankers. This decision amplifies Travis’ role and reputation in the Defense Department as a top-tier base and I could not be more proud of all the amazing work being done by these incredible men and women.”
