  • Air Force, community rally behind deploying servicemembers and their families

    Believe it or not, just one person in this picture is deploying. The other people are there to show their support for both the deploying member and his family. If you look closely, you will see Airmen, NCOs, civilians and senior officers all in the picture.This is just one of the ways the 50th Space Wing shows its support for our Air Force
  • Passover: A celebrated Jewish holiday from April 19-27

    Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew, is one of the three major pilgrimage festivals of ancient Israel. Originally a combination of a couple of different spring festivals, it is a commemoration of the Exodus from Egypt--especially the night when God "passed over" the houses of the Israelites during the tenth plague--and of the following day, when the
  • Taking care of Airmen a top priority

    Win today's fight. Take best care of our people. Prepare for tomorrow's challenges. These are the overarching priorities of our Air Force. Even while fighting a Global War on Terrorism and striving to find the ways and means to recapitalize our capabilities, we still make taking care of our people a top priority. I'm honored to be a member of such
  • AFAF provides for those in need

    I have always given to Air Force Assistance Fund throughout my career, but never had first-hand  knowledge of what they could do. Since 1997, I have been a staunch supporter of AFAF and the Air Force Aid Society in particular. While stationed at Lowry Air Force Base in Denver, I had a cough that just wouldn't go away. After a few doctor visits, I

Michael Evert, who credited the Air Force Assistance Fund and the Air Force Aid Society with helping him and his family through several difficult situations. Sergeant Evert died Jan. 18 from complications from a brain hemorrhage. What follows is a message of
  • Eyes on OPSEC: Telephone Security

    In 1876, a young inventor whose wife and mother were deaf was researching how sound is transmitted, in the hopes of restoring hearing to his loved ones. He realized an electrical signal could be created with peaks and valleys, just as the air carries sound waves to the ear. Further, this electrical signal could be sent over a wire across vast
  • AF Safety chief shares winter tips

    While the winter months can be an exciting time of year, they can also be extremely dangerous. Twenty Airmen lost their lives from December 2006-March 2007, and as a result, the lives of their families will never be the same! Winter not only brings low temperatures, fewer hours of daylight, and slippery road conditions; it brings countless
  • Military justice maintains vital order, discipline

    Take care of your people! New leaders often receive this bit of advice. For the military leader, taking care of people includes the maintenance of good order and discipline. Good order and discipline is vital to an effective military force -- an undisciplined military force is a losing military force. Maintaining discipline sometimes calls for a
  • U.S. observes 50 years of spaceflight

    Jan. 31 marks the 50th anniversary of the first U.S. launch of a satellite into space. In October 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik I, the first man-made object to orbit the Earth. On the day the Soviets launched Sputnik, then-Secretary of Defense Neil McElroy was visiting the Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Ala. Army Gen. John B. Medaris and
  • Are you living for 'inspiration of a noble cause'?

    "The inspiration of a noble cause involving human interests wide and far enables men to do things they did not dream themselves capable of before, and which they were not capable of alone. The consciousness of belonging, vitally, to something beyond individuality; of being part of a personality that reaches we know not where, in space and time,

“Service members, past and present, remember the enduring legacy of those intrepid patriots who fought during 1775-1783 for independence, and they recall the many times when later Americans have been called to preserve that independence in the face threats from enemies abroad. By wearing the uniform, they declare themselves ready to oppose any foe who would impose tyranny on them and their nation.” -- Rick Sturdevant, deputy director of history with headquarters Air Force Space Command

Many of you know that #TeamworkMakesTheDreamWork, but did you know our firefighters live by this phrase? Falcon and Schriever FD's came together to better themselves as a unit for future endeavors, how's that for teamwork? “We’ve had mutual aid agreements for many years, and we’ve done some building familiarization, but haven’t trained together very often. This was just a great opportunity and I hope we get to come out here more in the future.” -Jeff Petersma, deputy chief with the Flacon FD
