HMAC Monthly Luncheon Recap – June 2005

Speaker and Meeting Recap:

The speaker was Mr. John Martinec, the Director of the Ellington Field Task Force. He discussed some of the efforts of the Ellington Field Task Force to counter the recommendations and convince the BRAC Commissioners to ensure that Houston has a full F-16 wing. His conclusion was that the removal of the F-16’s will adversely affect our Homeland Defense posture in this area which has a large number of potential terrorist targets.
