ENID, Okla. — The Greater Enid Chamber of Commerce‘s annual trip to Washington, D.C., told the city’s story to top government and military officials, including U.S. Sen. James Lankford.
The Enid News Eagle reported the group visited the Pentagon to meet with top U.S. Air Force officials, and held meetings on Capitol Hill with members of the Oklahoma congressional delegation.
City of Enid military liaison Mike Cooper led the group in meetings with Lt. Gen. James M. “Mike” Holmes, Air Force deputy chief of staff for strategic plans and requirements, as well as Miranda Ballentine, assistant secretary of the Air Force for installations, environment, and energy. Both were briefed on the cooperative projects between the city and the Air Force, like the runway extension at Enid Woodring Regional Airport that allows T-38s from Vance Air Force Base to land there, as well as the joint use hangar that shelters both civilian and military aircraft.
