If selected, an honorary commander should be included in unit functions as much as possible, providing a hands-on experience in the program. They should be invited to be a part of their assigned unit and attend not only business functions such as unit ceremonies and meetings, but family functions as well, e.g., parties, unit picnics, and other such unit events.
The honorary commander will be invited (by the Public Affairs Office) to base-wide events such as awards ceremonies and changes of command. Honorary commanders may choose which they attend but should make every effort to be involved and attend at least one event per quarter. Attending additional events will help them gain knowledge and build a strong partnership with their military commander, unit personnel and the OKANG as a whole.
Honorary commanders should drop from the program if they feel they cannot actively engage with their unit commander. We understand mission comes first, so dropping from the program does not create a poor reflection of you or your organization.
All questions, concerns or issues about the overall program should be directed to the 138th Fighter Wing. Commitment and feedback is essential to the success of this program.
