Team Youngstown touts military value of YARS at Ohio Defense Forum

Col. James Dignan, commander of the Air Force Reserve’s 910th Airlift Wing, based at Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Ohio, discusses the military value of his unit and installation during the inaugural Ohio Defense Forum held at The Ohio State University here, Oct. 5, 2016. The purpose of the two-day forum was to create a united front for national security and defense in Ohio regarding the state’s defense and military industries and facilities in light of recent and potential upcoming Department of Defense programmatic changes and other future force-shaping including a Congressionally-directed Base Realignment and Closure, or BRAC.
