Aviano is a vital link in the NATO defense chain and the premier air base south of the Alps.

In fact, Aviano is nestled at the foot of the Pre-Alps or the Dolomites, and is located approximately 50 miles north of Venice, Italy and 9 miles from Pordenone, the largest nearby town. Italy is one of the best assignments in the world.
