Team Vance- "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." --Margaret Mead.
Team Vance volunteers have embodied this quote and are diligently working to change the world starting right here in Enid. There is so much volunteer activity by Vance AFB personnel that the volunteer coordinator has a difficult time keeping track of all the hours! That is impressive and inspiring to hear.
There is always an opportunity to volunteer and a visit to our volunteer coordinator at the family support center is a great place to start.
One of many upcoming volunteer opportunities is Camp Tomahawk. It is a 30-year tradition between Vance AFB and Enid. The camp starts Monday for approximately 20 boys ages 9 through 11 and the following Monday for the same age and number of girls.
If you have some time, whether it is days or hours to dedicate your time and attention to these children, please take advantage of it. The impact you will have will not be forgotten by them or you.
If you're looking for a volunteer opportunity that will provide a huge positive impact on 71st Wing personnel and their families, check out the SIGMO coordinator's position. We lose our current SIGMO coordinator in August and we must find a replacement soon to continue with this wonderful program. If you are interested please contact the Vance AFB chapel. I hope to convey to you how important our volunteers are to keeping many of our wing functions going.
Thank you, Team Vance on behalf of the wing for your unwavering and continued support of our volunteering needs both on and off the base. When the call comes, you answer and you do Vance AFB proud.
Have a great weekend Team Vance and remember to exercise good judgment and personal safety in all that you do!

"Do all the good you can
By all the means you can
In all the ways you can
In all the places you can
As long as you ever can."
