Robins returns to normal operations Published Oct. 18, 2013 By Robins Public Affairs ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. -- With the end of the 16-day government shutdown, 'normal operations' have resumed here. The doors of the Museum of Aviation and other base activities which were temporarily closed are now open. Additionally, community outreach events such as tours have restarted. The annual Combined Federal Campaign has also picked up where it left off. The CFC office will open Monday and keyworkers may pick up their solicitation materials in Bldg. 995 (behind the former elementary school). Officials are looking at if, or when, similar activities such as Wingman Day and Triple Ribbon Month will be rescheduled. "Our entire team is back at work providing world-class warfighter support," said Col. Chris Hill, installation commander. "Thanks to our great community for their support through this uncertain time," he added. At one point during the shutdown, more than 4,000 base employees were furloughed.
