Lt. Col. John Boccieri, director of the 910th Airlift Wing Commander’s Action Group, addresses the benefits of the Air Force Community Partnership Program during a meeting at America Makes in Youngstown, June 14, 2018. The meeting covered the 3-D printing partnership between Youngstown Air Reserve Station, Youngstown State University and America Makes. Additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, offers potential for aircraft parts to be made quicker and at a lower cost, yet as sturdy as their machined counterparts. The Air Force Community Partnership Program is a way for installation and community leaders to develop creative ways to leverage their capabilities and resources to achieve reduced costs by finding shared values.
