Senator Vance to visit Youngstown Air Reserve Station
Newly sworn-in U.S. Senator J.D. Vance has announced plans to visit the Valley next week.
According to Vance’s office, the Republican will be at the Youngstown Air Reserve Station in Vienna on Tuesday.
Vance and Colonel Jeffrey Van Dootingh, 910th Airlift Wing Commander, will meet with members of the media after the visit.
Colonel Dootingh oversees more than 1400 people and eight C- 130H2 aircraft at the base.
In addition to training for the plane’s airlift, tactical airland and airdrop, and Aeromedical Evacuation missions, the 910th AW is home to the Department of Defense’s only large area, fixed-wing aerial spray mission.
