Show Support for Fort Rucker

Doug Wynn, right, the president of the Wiregrass-Fort Rucker AUSA Chapter, presents Brad Kimbro with an award recognizing WEC for 5 continuous years of membership and involvement in the local AUSA chapter.

People from across the world travel to Fort Rucker for training as Army helicopter pilots.

A new flight platform in development — Future Vertical Lift — will eventually phase out current training. Solidifying Fort Rucker as the Future Vertical Lift training center will guarantee the future of this Wiregrass military installation.

That’s why joining the Wiregrass chapter of AUSA, the Association of the United States Army, is more important now than ever before! This fall at the Pentagon, AUSA will advocate for this training and more business members will demonstrate the Wiregrass’ strong support for Fort Rucker.

Wiregrass Electric Cooperative just celebrated its fifth anniversary of AUSA membership, and it hopes you’ll sign up to show that the Wiregrass loves Fort Rucker!

“Our community benefits in so many ways by having this training here,” says Brad Kimbro, WEC’s chief operating officer. “We can not afford to lose this Army post for any reason!

“We’re hoping the business community shows their support for Fort Rucker by becoming a part of AUSA, an organization doing incredible things for Army aviation and the soldiers stationed right here in the Wiregrass.”
