Kids can tackle obstacle course at Beale Air Force Base today

Children get their turn to run through Beale Air Force Base’s obstacle course today as part of Kids Appreciation Day.

The 9th Reconnaissance Wing hosts the event starting at 5 p.m. today at the Air Force Base Youth Center, in conjunction with the Junior Personnel Deployment Function line, established to give children a better understanding of what their parents experience as they prepare for deployment.

Other activities will include a mock weapons certification, deployment line with multiple base agencies and a mock deployment site with military vehicles, tents, displays and demonstrations.

If interested in attending, contact 9WR Public Affairs at (530) 634-8887 by 12 p.m. today.
