COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. -- Firefighters from Schriever Air Force Base, Colo., respond Jan. 22 to a three-vehicle accident at the crest of Corral Bluffs on State Highway 94.

Default Air Force Logo Cancer survivor stresses regular self-exams
"I'm sorry Paul, but it's cancer." It was July 2003, and the doctor's words put the fear of death in me for the first time. I was only 28 years old! But if I hadn't done self exams on a regular basis, I might not be here today to talk about it. One week earlier, I had found a mass on my left testicle that wound up being a cancerous tumor. As soon

The events of April 19, 1995, serve as a sobering reminder of this point. At 9:02 a.m. Central Time that day, a rental truck filled with fertilizer and explosives detonated near the Alfred P. Murray Federal Building in
