In line with this effort, Air Mobility Command recently graduated its first class of cyber warriors from the newly minted Global Mobility Air Operations – Cyber Course (GMAO-Cyber) hosted at the Expeditionary Center - Det 2 at Scott AFB.

Looking for a great way to comemorate the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, well look no further! The Air Mobility Command Museum recently announced a Commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, paying tribute to those who served, their sacrifices, and the history. A historic WWII C-47 Skytrain, That’s All, Brother (TAB), will be participating and visiting the AMC Museum on its way over to Normandy. TAB, the lead C-47 of the 800 aircraft that dropped two American airborne divisions into France, will be available for visitors to see up close on the Dover Air Force Base (DAFB) south ramp via the museum. There will be many historical presentations and reenactors on the D-Day operations throughout the day, and a swing dance with 1940s music performed by the Smooth Sound Big Band from Milford Delaware following the days exciting ground and air events. One significant highlight will be the planned presence of two paratroopers who jumped from the AMC Museum C-47 ‘Turf and Sport Special’ on that ‘Day of Days.’ All events will be held at the AMC Museum, for more information click here https://amcmuseum.org/events/commemoration-of-the-75th-anniversary-of-d-day/
