Amazon installs Lockers at Spangdahlem
Over the summer, Amazon provided a very necessary element to the support structure for members of the 52nd Fighter wing at Spangdahlem Air Base. A spokesman for Amazon said “We are delighted to have had an Amazon Locker installed at Spangdahlem Air Base. This will support members of the Saber Community to conveniently receive Amazon orders. They are living a long way from home and having access to the range of products Amazon sells provides comfort and helps keep morale high.”
