JOINT FORCES TRAINING BASE/LOS ALAMITOS ARMY AIRFIELD

Ladies and Gentlemen:

On behalf of Brig. Gen. Nate Reddicks, Joint Forces Training Base Commander, please join us on Thursday morning (APR 21) at 10 a.m. for an up-close look at Operation Patriot Hook 2016 – including an Air Force C-17A Globemaster III or C-5M Super Galaxy aircraft involved in the mission -- and observing the interaction of air crews and support personnel with a variety of first responder agencies participating in this year’s event.

Defense Support to Civilian Authority (DSCA) is one of the most important missions of the California National Guard, and Joint Forces Training Base (JFTB) and Los Alamitos Army Airfield (LAAAF) will be critical components in providing assistance to the 17-million citizens who reside in the Los Angeles and Southern California Region should a major natural disaster strike.

The importance of training and preparing for such a disaster has been brought to the forefront in recent days via the major earthquakes experienced in Japan and Ecuador.

Operation Patriot Hook 2016 is a multi-service exercise coordinated by the Air Force Reserve that is designed to integrate military, federal, state and local agencies, and provide training in quickly mobilizing and deploying first responders in the event of a regional emergency or natural disaster. As the only federal airfield in Los Angeles and Orange counties, LAAAF is a critical asset for delivering civil support to the region.

Please note that all attendees will need to show current photo identification to gain entrance to the base.

Participants will gather at the Los Alamitos Army Airfield conference room (Bldg. 1) before proceeding to the exercise site.

To RSVP, or should you have questions and/or need additional information, please contact Col. (CA) Richard Lalor at (562) 795-2096 (office), (626) 733-1170 (mobile) or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Thank you very much and we look forward to having you join us on Thursday.

Dear Local Members of the Chamber of Commerce,

The Los Alamitos High School rookie robotics team needs your help to get to the FIRST Robotics World Championships in St. Louis at the end of this month.

In a very exciting turn of events, our rookie team managed to pull off a Cinderella story over spring break and won the regional championship along with two other senior teams. This qualifies us to compete in the FRC Worlds in St. Louis at the end of this month.

An initial grant and mentorship from both The Boeing Company and Build It Workspace, in Los Alamitos allowed us to buy the robot kit and pay for registration fees for the FRC Orange County Robotics Competition. We had six weeks to design, build and program the robot to be ready for competition. Robots are designed to complete a variety of tasks ranging from simple to complex. Now we are facing the challenge of funding the expenses to attend the Worlds. Any additional funds beyond the needs for our trip will be used to further establish the team and prepare for 2017.

We would be very happy to come out and do a presentation to tell you more about our robot and the First Robotics Competition. We would be incredibly proud to have your company as a sponsor! Please consider this opportunity to support our rookie team to take our bot to the next level and help build the legacy for future students.

Donations can be made directly to our website http://losalfrc.wix.com/griffinfrc. Attached is a package of various levels of support and recognition that may be committed.

Additionally, the team is hosting a fundraising event at Griffin's Grill on April 14 from 5-8pm. A percentage of the proceeds when you state you are supporting of the team will benefit the growth of the team. Any funding received prior will be celebrated at Griffin's Grill.

Thank you!
