VIENNA, Ohio (WKBN) – The Air Force commander who oversees the Youngstown Air Reserve Station believes the sky is the limit for the base.

Major General Stayce Harris was back for another visit on Friday. She routinely visits the nine Air Force wings under her command, which include 15,000 Reservists and 105 aircraft.

On Friday, Harris shared a promise for the 910th Airlift Wing’s future during a reception with local leaders.

“The station’s future is intact and number one. It’s because of the community support,” Harris said. “It’s due to people being vocal and saying what they contribute and also because of the very unique spray mission that is here. That solely exists solely in the Reserve, and supporting FEMA and just doing great work across our nation.”

Major General Harris has flown the C-130, which is used at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station. She calls it a workhorse aircraft for the Air Force, since it can carry troops and cargo.

“The Youngstown Air Reserve station is so phenomenal. You’re looking at the private-public partnership. You’re looking at the community supporting our Reservists when they deploy and assisting their families every single day,” she said. “We’re so pleased to be a part of this community and look forward to it for many years to come.”
