Gov. Snyder to recognize members of 110th Attack Wing

BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Governor Snyder is in Battle Creek on Saturday, saluting the service of our brave men and women in uniform.

The governor will be in town to honor members of the Air National Guard, at a ceremony recognizing members of the 110th Attack Wing.

Michigan guardsmen are currently working on operating drones, which help support Air Force missions in Europe and Africa.

The base says Governor Snyder's funding for training has helped keep professionals on staff.

Last year, the base stopped flying man-operated planes, and shifted its focus to drones.

The nearby Fort Custer Training Center is also currently being considered as a possible site for a Ballistic Missile Defense System.

Warheads would be stationed there, ready to go at a moment's notice if missiles are being fired by a foreign country.

Officials say work being done at the Air National Guard base would help support that operation.
