The 7th Bomb Wing Commander, Col. David M. Benson, says he’s humbled to be a part of the Abilene community and Dyess Air Force Base.

He says there is no better support for those who fight for our liberties.

Over 700 are fighting to protect freedoms around the world.

“The thirst for what we do, it’s a thirst for freedom. And we provide freedom around the globe, and our friends and allies see that and they want it,” Col. Benson said.

Col. Benson says Dyess has great things ahead.
