The commander of the 310th Space Wing hosted a cake-cutting ceremony at the Satellite Dish dining facility Saturday in celebration of the Air Force's birthday as well as the anniversaries of Air Force Space Command and the 310 SW.
In his opening remarks, Col. Jeffrey Mineo highlighted significant milestones related to each organization's history and heritage.
"As we near the Air Force's 65th birthday, Sept. 18, and kick-off multiple events in honor of Air Force Space Command's 30th anniversary, we also want to acknowledge we're celebrating our fourth year as the newest and only space wing in the Air Force Reserve," said Mineo.
The youngest member of the wing, Airman 1st Class Abram Archuleta, 310th Space Wing Security Forces Squadron, joined Mineo in cutting the cake.

Mineo acknowledged 310th and 50th Space Wing Total Force members for their hard work, professionalism and contributions to mission success.
