Future of YARS discussed at special dinner

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

Retired Col. Joseph Zeis spoke at a special dinner at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station Thursday evening.  

While in the area, he also toured the Youngstown Business Incubator and America makes who are both partnering with the Air Reserve station to make parts for planes.  

Zeis said that kind of partnership could make a difference in keeping YARS if there are any future talks about base closures.

"What I hope to do is make that a learning point for the state and for the aerospace industry at large. This is a great example of what one can do when there's great synergy between the community, the industry that surrounds the base and the mission itself," Zeis said.

Zeis says he also wants to make the 910th available for different types of missions, like intelligence and surveillance, to make it more valuable.
