Saved in Terre Haute: Indiana Air Guardsmen of the 181st Fighter Wing in Terre Haute still have to give up their F-16s (to neighboring Fort Wayne, no less) under BRAC 2005, but they get two new missions in exchange, reports the Terre Haute Tribune-Star. The Pentagon plans to put an intelligence-surveillance-reconnaissance data analysis unit (called a Distributed Common Ground Station) and an Air Support Operations Squadron (read that battlefield airmen) at Terre Haute. Combined, the two new missions will require about 420 Air Guardsmen.
