They daily engage in exercises and front-line operations worldwide to protect our democracy, values and our freedom while putting themselves at risk. In addition, their presence is vital to the economic and social wellbeing of North Central Indiana. “We are fortunate to have Grissom Base here in north central Indiana,” he added. Grissom ARB has a long history of interaction with civic and community leaders and the honorary commanders program is a valuable part of the base’s outreach activities. With this program, select individuals from the community are matched with Grissom’s key commanders. The goal is to provide the honorary commanders with a rare, inside look at the base, its mission, and its people. The honorary commanders will then take their experiences at Grissom and share them with others from their respective communities. Harris joined 20 state legislators on Wednesday, August 17, 2011, for an air refueling flight. Harris joined the cockpit crew of the KC-135R Stratotanker during take off, and participated in the refueling of a RC- 135 Rivet Joint from Offutt Air Force Base, Nebraska.
