Columbus AFB holds AF Ball
More than 400 Columbus Air Force Base members and community partners gather at the Trotter Convention Center in Columbus, Mississippi, Sept. 15, 2017, to celebrate the Air Force’s 70th birthday. The Trotter Convention Center lobby was lined with a historical display that featured some of the Air Force’s and the base’s key points in its existence and supported the ball’s theme, “Airpower Starts Here.” The event also included a Prisoner of War and Missing in Action remembrance ceremony, formal toasts to leaders of the military services, a ceremonial cake cutting, and music performed live by the 41st Army Band.
