"...NAVNEWS 023/97 NNS2301. Tinker AFB Navy hosts CNO visit Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Jay L. Johnson, recently visited Oklahoma-based Sailors and airmen during a trip to Tinker Air Force Base. Admiral Johnson was the honored guest at the base's annual Communicators Banquet honoring Navy and Air Force strategic communicators. "I'm extremely proud of the 1,200 Navy men and women, civilians, and contractors, all those who do the great work at Strategic Communications Wing ONE, VQ-3, and VQ-4," said Admiral Johnson. "I certainly understand the strategic importance of what you do, both as the Chief of Naval Operations and as a member of the Joint Chiefs of Staff," he said. "So, for me, it would be impossible to overstate the contribution that's made from right here at Tinker." Admiral Johnson thanked the entire Tinker AFB team for its support of the Navy and for the accomplishments as a joint team. "You can feel it when you step off the airplane, you can see it everywhere you go, and it works," said Johnson. "I dare say there will come a time when this kind of organization becomes the way we are going to do business on lots of bases. It makes great sense, and I thank the Air Force and I thank the community for what you do for the Navy and the country." Admiral Johnson also had the opportunity to meet with Sailors from the VQ squadrons based at Tinker and tour an E- 6A TACAMO (Take Charge and Move Out) aircraft and associated maintenance and training facilities. -USN- NNS2302..." http://www.chinfo.navy.mil/navpalib/news/navnews/nns97/nns97023.txt [06MAR2001]
