KADENA AIR BASE, Japan —Wisconsin National Guard senior leaders visited deployed members of the 115th Fighter Wing March 4 to learn how they are helping complete the mission here.

During their visit, Chief Master Sgt. Gregory Cullen, Wisconsin Air National Guard command chief, and Brig. Gen. Gary Ebben, Wisconsin National Guard deputy adjutant general for Air, spoke with several squadrons about how the Wisconsin Air National Guard fits into Kadena's mission of providing unmatched combat power, a forward power projection platform and for the common defense of Japan.

While at Kadena, Ebben and Cullen also took the opportunity to speak with the members from their home units during a lunch at the Officer's Club.

"I am excited to see all of the good work everyone is putting in during this deployment," Ebben said.

Ebben also talked about the strategic importance his Airmen play while here.

"You are all here representing America," he said. "You are not just representing the Air Force or the Air National Guard — every time you are out in town you are representing America."
