    I hope that this link helps with your questions that you may have. It gives the list of units on the base, maps etc... It's very helpfull information espically if this his first duty station and begin checking into his command. I would suggest calling his unit that he is going to and talking to someone that he will be working with so the the lowdown on everything. My squadron has a duty there 24 hours a day 7 days a week. They can help you get the right phone number.

    George, he'll find plenty of fishing and sports opportunities here. Wichita is a short distance from at least three good lakes; El Dorado, Cheney, and Kaw (just across the line in Oklahoma). He'll be within a couple hours drive of several more and they are all great catfishing lakes.
    If he likes sports he should find something to his liking as well. There are plenty of good college teams close by and all kinds of softball leagues and golf courses if he wants to participate.
    Be sure to tell him to contact some of the BOC members and he won't lack for fishing companions.

    You folks in Kansas have nothing to worry about with #1 son and family arriving soon, it's the visits from #1 dad that could be cause for concern:roll_eyes:

    When number one Dad shows up I hope he brings his fishing pole. We'll show him a number one great time.

    Glad to hear him coming to Wichita! We get a lot of knocks around here, but if you like the outdoors, there is always something to do! Plenty of things to see as well. You need to make sure he lets us know when he arrives!
