(Phoenix, Ariz. -- July 29, 2010) Attorney General Terry Goddard today commended the selection of Luke Air Force Base as a training base for the next generation of Air Force jets, the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
"The Air Force's choice of Luke is terrific news for the citizens of Arizona," Goddard said. "Since its opening in 1941, Luke has played a vital role in our nation's security and our state's economy. It has earned its status as one of America's premier air bases. Its choice for the F-35 promises to continue its prominent mission far into the future."
