Local contractors and 173rd Fighter Wing members completed renovations to the Airman housing building March, 2017 on Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls, Ore.

Airmen of the 173rd Force Support Flight Services kicked off the renovations in July 2016 with fresh coat of paint for most rooms and hallways of the dormitory. A local business installed new carpet and 173rd Civil Engineer Squadron members wrapped up the remodel with a revamped kitchen area.


“The customers have said they appreciate it,” said Airman 1st Class Alexandrea Bakie, 173rd Force Support Flight Services. “It also cuts back our cleaning time and it just looks nicer all together,”


Room doors now have electric keycard access locks so billeting guests won’t have the need to fumble with old room keys anymore.


In addition to the physical improvements, the 173rd FSF Services now has an online room reservation system.


“It takes less time for the troop camp staff and it is user-friendly for the (guests) as well,” Bakie said.
