For the second month in a row, the 512th Airlift Wing announced its next Unit Training Assembly would be a virtual event.

“As COVID-19 continues to be a threat, I’ve decided to make January’s UTA virtual, for the protection of our people and our mission,” said Col. Greg Haynes, 512th AW commander.

He added, in-person attendance will be approved on a case-by-case basis through a member’s chain of command.

January’s modified UTA will be the Liberty Wing’s fourth virtual training weekend since the pandemic started earlier this year. Like the previous modified UTAs, reservists will not be placed in a no-pay, no-points status for medical reasons due to their inability to attend the January UTA in person. 

Unit leadership is responsible for reviewing lodging reservations and submitting confirmations and cancellations to the 512th Memorial Affairs Squadron, as well as informing reservists of their lodging status.

Wing members with questions about their January UTA participation plan, can contact their supervisor.
