News Release
Peterson offices close Jan. 24 - 01/22/19

Beginning Jan. 24, 2019, the majority of 21st Space Wing customer service functions on Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado will close the fourth Thursday of every month for wing-wide training initiatives.

Peterson AFB’s medical and dental clinics will close, along with the 21st Medical Group Pharmacy, the Peterson AFB Legal Office, the 21st Comptroller Squadron finance office, Peterson AFB’s military and civilian personnel office, and the base’s visitor control center, said Col. Kirsten Aguilar, 21st Mission Support Group commander. The fitness center and the Aragon Dining Facility will remain open.

“Our customers, especially our retiree population, sometimes travel far distances to come to the base to exercise their retiree benefits,” she said. “If everyone is closed at the same time, we can help ease the burden on our customers.”

Base officials recommend calling ahead Jan. 24 to ensure availability.
