A Message From the Project Team

You’ll see renovations happening throughout the 35th Force Support Squadron that will repair infrastructures and move us toward more modern facilities. FSS is working with Civil Engineering and other entities to improve our services. Scan the QR code on posters to check in here for updates as we move through these projects.

You may see some construction signs, facility closures and functions moved around while we work. These renovation efforts are planned to support each unique service at its respective location when all projects are complete. A menu item or service you enjoyed may not currently be offered because it is planned for a future location.

As we continue to progress, please understand that projects take some time and the end goal is to provide the community with better FSS facilities and services. We are excited to make big improvements as a community and thank you for understanding these efforts.
