A member of the 4th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron died yesterday while deployed to an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia in support of Operation Inherent Resolve.

1st Lt. Anais Tobar, 25, of Miami, Florida, died July 18, 2016 from non-combat related injuries. The incident is still under investigation.

“The entire base joins me in sending our deepest sympathies to the Tobar family during this period of bereavement” said Col. Christopher Sage, 4th Fighter Wing commander. “The bonds that tie the Air Force family together are strong, both down-range and at home station. This tragedy affects us all; put your arm around those who are grieving, both personally and professionally.”
