Mountain Home Logistics Unit Gets New Home

Members of the 366th Logistics Readiness Squadron at Mountain Home AFB, Idaho, now have a new 80,000-square-foot work building thanks to a $20 million construction project. “It is a plus for everyone in the squadron,” said Maj. Todd Jensen, the unit’s commander, of the new Logistics Readiness Center. The facility “provides a home base for operations across the base and allows immediate access to logistics leaders and practitioners,” he added. Mountain Home officials held the center’s opening ceremony on Nov. 15. Prior to the new building, the squadron’s airmen were working out of five different warehouses across the base. “Now, we can consolidate our assets,” said Kevin Curl, 366th LRS material management flight chief. The new facility has also boosted squadron members’ enthusiasm, said Jensen. “It tells them that the Air Force really does care about you and wants to make sure you have the best that the Air Force has to offer,” he said.
