We are taking a look at some of the amazing work being done by true American heroes at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst in a series called Behind the Base.

The second segment focuses in on some time we spent at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst with Lt. Col. Paula Cottrell, who is the 87th Force Support Commander.

The squadron has approximately 900 military and civilian members and 500 contractors tasked with providing support to the base through civilian and military human resource manpower management, professional and educational development and much more.

Lt. Col. Cottrell spent time with us and gave us an inside look into some of the important work going on at this amazing place, and you can check out the complete conversation in the video below.

You can get more information on the base at the Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst website and Facebook page, and also remember the big Open House and Air Show is coming soon!
