Holloman AFB cancels Community DayMay 14th, 2013 at 4:09 pm by Bill Diven under Community Affairs
Holloman Air Force Base has abruptly canceled its the annual Community Day this Saturday because of the federal sequestration budget cuts.
A statement released late this afternoon said the decision was made after recent guidance from the Air Force on how to handle the automatic budget cuts imposed by Congress and the administration.
“This cancellation is about making the most out of available funds,” Col. Andrew Croft, 49th Wing commander, said in the statement. “We must all collectively be good stewards of taxpayer dollars, and readiness remains the wing’s top priority.
“The timing of this decision is unfortunate, however, we have to do what’s best for the 49th Wing and our nation.”
