How can I get a tour of Westover?

Due to reduced manning at the base, Westover tours are offered on a limited, case-by-case basis.

Due to the Great New England Air and Space Show, all tours are suspended until further notice.

The first step in requesting a tour is to email the base public affairs office:

-- Email address: 439aw.pa@us.af.mil

-- How many people are wishing to visit (tours are limited to 35 people per visit)?

-- Which areas on base would the group like to visit? (Tours are limited to two hours in duration)

-- Mode of transportation to the base (cars/bus, etc.)?

-- Please provide a primary and alternate date that are AT LEAST one month in advance of the request.

Thank you.

Pet owners, with it being the summer time it can get really hot outside and even hotter in a car.
Thank you Tim Meadows for coming to Keesler!
Just so you know, there's been some changes to AFI 36-2903!
The Biloxi Air Show is this weekend and Keesler personnel are encouraged to attend and enjoy the show. Please remember that this event is open to everyone and the city of Biloxi expects substantial crowds, especially during the hours of 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. when the actual air show will commence. There will be significant vehicle and pedestrian traffic on Hwy 90, I-110 and the Ocean Springs Bridge. For those traveling in the area please drive safely, pay attention and look out for pedestrians crossing the road. Additionally, there will be no changes to gate hours or operations during the weekend.
A tornado watch is in effect until 3 p.m. around the Keesler area.
***WEATHER WARNING*** There will be heavy rain equal to or greater than 2 inches valid until 7 p.m. on Keesler. Monitor local news stations for updates for your area. Be safe and avoid flooded areas.
Don't forget to join us for Tim Meadows comedy night tomorrow at the BBEC!
"We are the eyes and ears of the base," said Master Sgt. DeAnna Beasley, 81st Training Wing command and control operations superintendent. "We have the responsibility of notifying leadership and everybody across the installation of anything that will affect their safety."

Members of the 81st Medical Operations Squadron received humanitarian medals today at the The Salvation Army Kroc Center in Biloxi, Miss., from the Biloxi Police Department for their support of the train/bus collision incident that occurred off base March 7, 2017.

Congrats to our amazing Legal Office! Col. Debra Lovette, 81st Training Wing commander, presented the Keesler legal office with the Air Education and Training Command’s Outstanding Large Legal Office award this week.
Dragons, This week we celebrate the birth of our great nation 242 years ago...a nation born of courage and vision….a vision of a people unafraid to face the unknown. This endeavor only succeeded with unfathomable persistence through failures and sacrifice...sacrifice worthy of the ideals in the Declaration of Independence, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Each of us owns a part of this commitment and I have the privilege of standing shoulder to shoulder with all of you as we do our part to serve our nation and ideals. Enjoy some time this week to celebrate this milestone always remembering those who work through holidays and those that are deployed in support of our service and their families. Make good decisions and stay safe. We need you. Proud to stand with you, v/r, DL
