April 19, 1994

To The Friends of Soesterberg Air Base

Today’s “End of an Era” ceremony is truly both a celebration and time of sadness.
While we take great pride in the success of our mission at Soesterberg,
we’re saddened thatwe must say good-bye to so many close friends,
coworkers and the communities which have welcomed us so warmly for nearly
40 years.

We’re holding the official ceremony today because it symbolizes our friendship.
The Congress of the United States set aside April 19th as
Dutch American Friendship Day in 1986.
It was on this that in 1782 that Prince William V of Orange officially
recognized the ambassadorial credentials of John Adams.
That historical event began the longest such relationship between
the United States and any other country.

Today’s ceremony doesn’t mark an end to our long friendship,
but is a milestone of our achievements together.
Thank you for 40 years of flight and friendship.

 

Tot Ziens,

William F. Hodgkins, Colonel, USAF
Commander, 32d Fighter Group
