Keesler Air Force Base plans to resume standard operations Oct. 30 after sustaining damage from Hurricane Zeta. Only mission essential personnel are working today in an effort to ensure the safety of the base by performing recovery actions.

            Base facilities are projected to reopen on the following dates/times:

  1. Keesler Medical Center plans to resume normal operations Oct. 30.
  2. The AAFES Base Exchange will open at 9 a.m. and the Commissary will open at 1 p.m. Oct. 30.
  3. The Fitness Center and Vandenberg will resume regular hours on Oct. 31. For full details on additional Force Support Squadron facilities, follow their Facebook page at

The 81st Training Wing, along with help from the 403rd Wing and our mission partners, was able to take safety precautions before the hurricane made landfall. These safety precautions not only helped minimize the damage on base but also ensured the safety of Keesler Airmen, our joint partners, and their families.
