McLean, Va. – (October 19, 2018) – DynCorp International donated $5,000 to the Air Force Aid Society’s Hurricane Fund to assist with emergency support following the destruction at Tyndall Air Force Base in Florida from Hurricane Michael. The Aid Society provides assistance to displaced airmen and families.
“DI has a legacy of partnering with the Air Force to accomplish critical missions,” said Bill Tart, senior director, DI Business Development. “While we have served side by side with Air Force at a number of bases in the Florida Panhandle, we jumped at the opportunity to be a true Wingman by partnering with the Air Force Aid Society, helping support the Air Force’s first priority of taking care of their Airmen and their families, and really reaching those most impacted.”
According to the National Weather Center, Hurricane Michael was the strongest on record in the Florida Panhandle, and was the fourth-strongest landfalling hurricane in the contiguous United States, in terms of wind speed.
“The Air Force Contract Augmentation Program (AFCAP) is headquartered at Tyndall AFB,” said Randy Bockenstedt, DynLogistics president. “DI has held various AFCAP task orders around the world for more than ten years, and while we are dismayed by the circumstances we are happy to contribute to our customer’s goals of assisting their Air Force families.”
“As we watched Hurricane Michael last week, our hearts went out to all the men and women of the Air Force on Florida’s Gulf Coast who had devoted so much to the defense of our nation. We are pleased that we could, in some small way, contribute to the resilient Tyndall-Eglin-Hurlburt community in their time of need,” said George Krivo, DynCorp International CEO.
