Eshoo Introduces Bill to Formally Designate 129th Rescue Wing Facilities

July 31st, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (CA-18) has introduced legislation (H.R. 3341) to designate the 111-acre cantonment area at Moffett Federal Airfield housing the 129th Rescue Wing as Moffett Air National Guard Base. Unlike most other military installations across the country, the 129th Rescue Wing’s facilities at Moffett Airfield were never granted a formal name. Eshoo solidified Moffett Airfield as the unit’s permanent home in 2010.

“Every minute of every day, the men and women of the 129th Rescue Wing stand ready and able to respond in an emergency,” Eshoo said. “These highly decorated individuals utilize specialized capabilities in a wide range of environments, from wildfires and floods to earthquakes and hurricanes. They’ve saved countless lives at sea, and deploy worldwide to conduct combat search and rescue operations. They are exceptional.”

She continued, “By formally designating the Moffett Air National Guard Base, we honor the men and women of the 129th Rescue Wing and usher in a symbolic recommitment to public safety and to those who protect us.”
