We received a number of comments regarding the closure of the West Gate on Sept. 4, the Friday leading up to the Labor Day weekend.
I want to sincerely apologize as we did not properly inform the base populace of the closure. Although gate hours are posted at the West Gate entrance, I agree that we should have done a better job advertising the fact that the West Gate is not open on AFMC Family Days.
We are internally reviewing closure and service reduction rules of engagement for various functions related to these events.
Additionally, we have adjusted our processes to aggressively publicize what base services and functions will be affected during holidays and AFMC Family Days. Again, I apologize for the lack of communication regarding the closure.
