The Force Support Squadron is heartbeat of any base, making sure life flows through the base to Airmen and their families. The 30th Force Support Squadron is no different. Our mission is: To provide world class customer service by delivering superior total force support and community services to Team Vandenberg. We deliver this through a complex network of men and women in and out of uniform functioning in vastly diverse spheres from military and civilian personnel and manpower, to childcare, to education and training, to airman and family readiness, to fitness, to recreation and, of course, to food. We have what I think is the best and one of the most important missions on this base. We have the honor and privilege of making sure our Air Force’s #1 asset, our “Big A” Airmen and their families, are taken care of and offered opportunities to build strength, grow more resilient, and regenerate so that the 30th Space Wing can best accomplish its mission to provide indispensable launch, landing, and range capabilities to the nation and so that our Air Force can remain the greatest fighting force in the world. We bring our Airmen and their families together and we make them stronger and that is work worth doing. It is my distinct honor to command the 30th Force Support Squadron and work with all of the men and women who make these events possible and it is my pleasure to serve all of you. I look forward to a wonderful 2017 as we work to make sure there is no doubt that the 30 FSS is the best!
