OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea --
Airmen assigned to the 607 Air Operations Center here, received a Thanksgiving Day call from President Donald Trump Nov. 29, 2019.
The President highlighted the AOC during the all-Services call, thanking the Osan Airmen for what they do every day.
“You are the tip of the spear,” President Trump said. “Thank you for what you do for all Americans here and overseas.”
1st Lt. Julie Fleming, a senior intelligence officer, said she was honored and humbled to be a part of the group representing the AOC during the call.
“Calls like these are a great way for the President to reach out to service members who are serving away from their families during the holidays,” Fleming said. “It’s nice to know that we are remembered and what we do is important enough for him to take time to thank us.”
The 607 AOC is directly charged with the protection and defense of 51 million South Koreans, providing information and air, space, cyberspace operations.
The President ended the call by thanking everyone for their service and wishing all a happy Thanksgiving.
