Portman Visits Mansfield Lahm, 179th

23 Oct , 2021  

On Friday, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) visited the Mansfield Lahm Air National Guard Base, home to the 179th Airlift Wing, where he met with Wing leadership and the Airmen currently serving at the installation.

The 179AW helps transport strategic movement of personnel and cargo through the U.S. and the world and participates in disaster relief efforts and other domestic emergencies as required.

In August, Portman joined the Ohio Congressional Delegation in a letter to the Secretary of the Air Force expressing support for the 179th Airlift Wing’s proposed transition to the Information Warfare Wing/Cyberspace Wing mission.
