As the first aircraft metals technology Airmen to ever attempt to reverse engineer the part, it took Staff Sgt. Steven Doucette, 92nd Maintenance Squadron aircraft metals technology shift lead, and Staff Sgt. Steven Bultemeier, 92nd MXS aircraft metals technology craftsman, three weeks to have a finished product. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Sean Campbell) MXS Airmen get innovative, save AF dollars

Default Air Force Logo Healthy Disciplinary Practices for Parents
We often joke about how when our children are born they don’t come with an owner’s manual; after a long, stressful day we might wish there was a rule book to help us engage with our children when they are being just that---children. We might reach our limits with our child and after talking, yelling, warnings, or threats, we might lose our cool and control. For some, we might wonder about the rules around physical discipline toward our children.
