The 111th Civil Engineer Squadron held a ceremony at Biddle Air National Guard Base Horsham, Pennsylvania to re-activate after a 13-year hiatus, June 12, 2021.
The 111th CES de-activated in 2008 when the base transitioned from a Joint-Reserve base to a Guard installation before eventually reactivating during June 2021’s Uniform Training Assembly.
Col. Christine Munch, Commander 111th Mission Support Group, stressed the importance of the occasion after the ceremony. “I think it means a lot for the squadron members to slap that patch on their uniforms,” Munch said. “It’s important to note that the Civil Engineer Squadron is being re-activated, not activated.”
