UCM Offers Faculty and Staff Tour of Whiteman Air Force Base

Contact: Jeff Murphy
WARRENSBURG, MO (Jan. 12, 2015) – University of Central Missouri faculty and staff members have an opportunity to tour Whiteman Air Force Base on Thursday, Feb. 26 through a special program  conducted between Whiteman leadership and the UCM Office of Military and Veteran Services.

The free tour will be offered on a first-come, first serve basis to interested UCM employees, with preference given to faculty and staff members who work directly with service members in their campus role. The university will provide transportation to and from the base. The bus will leave campus at 8:10 a.m., and return back to campus by approximately 12:30 p.m. Advance registration is due no later than Feb. 12.

This will include a windshield tour of the base and a unit mission brief conducted by Whiteman’s Office of Public Affairs. The visit offers opportunities to get a close-up look at aircraft such as the B-2 bomber and the A-10 while also interacting with base personnel.  UCM members also will gain a better understanding of the military environment in which many of the university’s military students work and reside, in addition to learning about the demands of service members pursuing their education.

According to UCM’s Office of Military and Veteran Services, participants must be mobile, adaptable to fluctuating temperatures, able to ascend and descend stairs easily, as well as have the ability to transfer from different vehicles to facilities without difficulty.

Individuals who plan to attend will be required to provide mandatory personal information for base access upon registration, and will be required to provide two forms of identification upon their admittance, including two forms of photo ID.

To obtain a registration form or to learn more, contact Jeff Huffman, director, Military and Veteran Services, or Delilah Nichols, coordinator, Military and Veteran Services, by calling 660-543-8776.
