The 440th Airlift Wing located at Pope Field has been slated for deactivation under the proposed Air Force budget. The 440th Airlift Wing is a critical component in the high level training and timely deployment of our Airborne and Special Operations forces. Additionally, the deactivation will impact approximately 1600 jobs in our community and $77.8 million could be removed from our local economy.

On behalf of the residents of the City of Fayetteville and in unified support of our military soldiers and airmen, a resolution is available for residents to sign that expresses opposition to the deactivation of the 440th Airlift Wing and petitions Congress to modify the Air Force budget to preserve the 440th Airlift Wing.

To include your name with the resolution and show your support for keeping the 440th Airlift Wing at Pope Army Airfield, click here http://fayettevilleoutfront.com/surveys/save-the-440th-citizen-resolution
