Thank you to all who have attended the first half of the Military Asset and Security Strategy Task Force’s spring tour with sessions on Barnes, Fort Devens, and Hanscom.  Note that the previously scheduled session on the Natick Soldier Systems Center has been postponed to Monday June 16 so we can also have a groundbreaking ceremony that morning. 

In each military base community we are talking about the Military Task Force’s mission, what we are working on in support of each base and the surrounding community, and what the passage of the state’s military bond bill means.  This tour is a follow up to the Military Task Force’s military community event from October of 2013.     

All sessions are open to the public.  We hope you will be able to join us at the session(s) that works best for you by RSVP’ing to this email:
