Morin oversees organizing, training, equipping and providing for the welfare of airmen, including the Air National Guard, and their families.
Heitkamp’s office said she reminded Morin about existing infrastructure and community support at Grand Forks Air Force Base, which make it ideal for the KC-46 aerial refueling mission. She also discussed missions for the Guard’s 119th Wing in Fargo, including the proposed C-27 mission.
