The 412th Electronic Warfare Group celebrated its first Family Day in nearly two years at Edwards Air Force Base, California, June 18.

With the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, the team planned and organized the Family Day to reintroduce the Group and families to one another and to further enhance camaraderie and fellowship.

“This was an amazing opportunity for EWG’s members and families to get together to see the base and our compound while celebrating what we do to support the mission here at Edwards AFB,” said Col. Jay Orson, 412th EWG commander.

The event team overcame numerous obstacles during planning. No test, weather, pandemic, or Federal Holiday could stop this day from happening.

Over 230 employees and their family members enjoyed tours of the Benefield Anechoic Facility (BAF) and a chance to fly simulators in the Integrated Facility for Avionics Systems Test (IFAST), food from ToƱitos, a pet adoption drive from APET, a Tricycle Racing Obstacle Course, and the Colonel’s Golf Chipping Contest.
