115th Fighter Wing

The Wisconsin Air National Guard’s 115th Fighter Wing announced today the death of an F-16 pilot who crashed in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula Dec. 8. Per Department of Defense policy, the 115th Fighter Wing will not release the pilot’s identity until 24 hours after notifying the service member’s next of kin.

“We are deeply saddened by this tragic loss; our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time,” 115th Fighter Wing commander Col. Bart Van Roo said. “Today is a day for mourning, the 115th Fighter Wing and the entire Wisconsin National Guard stands with the pilot’s family as we grieve the loss of a great Airman, and patriot.”

“We are an extremely close knit group at the fighter wing, the loss of one of our own brings immeasurable sadness to every member of our organization,” he said.

The crash occurred within Michigan’s Hiawatha National Forest during a training mission Tuesday night. A multi-state, interagency search for the pilot and aircraft immediately followed the crash. The cause of the crash is under investigation.

The 115th Fighter Wing is appreciative of the community support provided to its members and will release additional details as they become available.

It's hard to believe but thieves will use information found in obituaries and memorials to commit identity theft. Be wary of what you share when you are honoring a loved one!

Progress report: Old Main at the Soldiers Home

Looks much better than the last time I was in the building right before they began work.

In 2016, the Milwaukee Veterans Administration announced that Edward Townsend Mix's iconic Old Main at the Old Soldiers Home would be converted into veterans housing. This week, we went in to see how it's progressing.

It's with congratulatory but heavy hearts that we say Goodbye, in MAVRC, to one of our student-staff, Carlos Munoz! He is going on to bigger and better opportunities in the business world. But to be clear, describing Carlos as a "student" is just a technicality for a man who has lived many lives and holds a world of experience in his career in the military, his work with veteran support and community support, along with all he has accomplished in MAVRC. We are going to miss him very, very much! Join us in wishing him well! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

It is Health Care Supply Chain Week! From our Logistics department, Tiffany Cook served in the Navy for 12 years and spent the last 18 years at the Milwaukee VA. Her catchy tag of “hydrating the hospital” means just that. Her primary role is maintaining the stock and making sure that each floor has the IV solutions and oxygen tanks needed to keep providing outstanding care to our Veterans. She Is well known throughout the facility and has earned the respect and friendship of all departments she serves. Well done, Tiffany!
