CO's Holiday Message
From the Skywriter, December 1, 2016

Happy Holidays! I hope you enjoy this special Holiday Edition of Skywriter. This edition is intended to help you reflect on the accomplishments of 2016 while looking forward to the challenges of 2017. I want to wish everyone on board Naval Air Facility Atsugi a safe, happy, and memorable season as you celebrate with family and friends - whether you remain in Japan or travel to hometowns around the world.

Everyone on the NAF Atsugi team - both the installation and tenant commands - has reason to be proud of 2016. As you review this special Skywriter, you’ll be treated to a great visual representation of the goals we accomplished together. 2016 was a year in which everyone devoted themselves to the goals of teamwork,professional development, and customer service excellence. I’m proud how our team leveraged these goals into building a strong foundation for an as-yet unwritten future as we face the departure of the fixed-wing elements of Carrier Air Wing FIVE. One of our most significant achievements was using our command goals to develop long-range, multi-use opportunity plans to ensure the installation remains a strong, strategic and essential maritime support location well into the future.

I envision 2017 will be the year of the “hidden hero,” as we recognize those hard working, dedicated employees you may rarely see, but who nevertheless form the backbone of the essential services across the installation and tenant commands.Otsukaresama deshita - Thank you for your hard work and dedication in 2016! Let’s welcome 2017 with enthusiasm and devotion to delivering on our operational commitments and quality-of-life services to our most important customers: the Fleet, the Fighter and the Family.
