Volk Field unveils new operations center during ribbon-cutting ceremony

CAMP DOUGLAS, Wis. - The Volk Field Air National Guard Base unveiled their newly renovated Counterland Operations Center during a ribbon-cutting ceremony today.

Leadership at the ceremony included Brig. Gen. Gary Ebben, Wisconsin's deputy adjutant general for Air; Col. David May, Volk Field Air National Guard commander; and Col. Chad Milne, Wisconsin director of air operations.

"The Air National Guard's premier Counterland Training Center deserves an operations center that meets the needs of aircrews coming to Volk Field to train, and now we have it," May said.

According to May, the state-of-the-art facility offers a modernized workspace that will be perfectly suited for next generation fighter aircraft, such as the F-35A Lightning II. The center offers access to two impact ranges within the complex including electronic warfare training systems, creating a unique and beneficial training experience unlike any other training center in the Air National Guard.

"Due to the hard work and determination of Volk's talented workforce, we are standing in this new operations center today," May said. "This newly remodeled facility makes us better prepared, more able, and more relevant in the effort to train the modern warfighter."
