  • America’s Airmen enjoy America’s game

    Airmen from the 92nd Logistics Readiness Squadron took a day to watch a professional baseball game between the Boston Redsox and the Seattle Mariners June 27. The Tickets and Travel Office here organized the outing to watch the professional baseball game in Seattle, Wash., for 94 people including Airmen from the 92nd LRS and other members from the
  • Rescue flight crews provide 'help from above'

    On a moonless night, the glow from a red and green instrument panel illuminates the faces of the crew of Blade 79er, a UH-1N Huey flying a night vector mission over the tree-covered mountains of northern Washington. Suddenly, the radio crackles. "Rescue, Rescue, Rescue ... Phaser 1-2 calling in vector," the voice of a student on the ground nearby
  • A journey of a lifetime

    Trials and tribulations. The phrase sounds like a title for a poorly made 1930s movie about the Great Depression. But add the word track to the beginning and triumph to the end, and it more than explains the life of Celestine Kuntz, health education program manager at the Health and Wellness Center. Track, Trials, Tribulations and Triumph. From 5
  • Fitness: A high priority year-round

    On one hand, there are those who stay active on a daily basis. Winter or summer, rain or shine, physical exercise is of high importance. On the other hand there are those who are only somewhat active up until it is their time to shine on the 1.5-mile run. Any amount of exercise is valued, but it is typically the group that continuously strives to
  • Stress: Don't let it control you

    Your Air Expeditionary Force cycle is coming up. You just received permanent change-of-station orders. An exercise is around the corner and you still need to prep for the Unit Compliance Inspection. And that's just work. Add a home life, and your demands and stressors seem endless. It's impossible to eliminate these everyday stress factors from our
  • The American flag: Symbol of heritage

    The American flag has always been a proud symbol of our heritage, so it is no surprise that we dedicate an entire day each year to celebrate it. That day is June 14, the anniversary of the day in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted the Stars and Stripes as the official flag of the United States. Although Flag Day is not an official national
  • Keeping an eagle-eye on the wing commander

    Standing a few inches short of six feet (ok, maybe more than a few), with the broad shoulders of a powerful warrior and two noble eagles perched on the left and right sides of his collar, Col. Thomas Sharpy, 92nd Air Refueling Wing commander, has bled Air Force blue for more than 20 years. He now adds to the mix a few drops of Fairchild and the
  • Air Force program shelters abused family members

    You are living in fear of physical abuse that takes place in front of your children. Screaming, name-calling and uncontrollable crying are all part of the deal. What do you do? The immediate response is, "Get out immediately!" Of course. Nobody should live with such abuse, and no parent should ever put their children through, or allow their
  • A candidate of a higher calling

    Transitioning into an Air Force life, learning new customs and procedures, and understanding a different way to do things with a military twist is not always easy. Add to that, finding ways to perfect a sermon, counseling the young, old and in-between, and being exceptionally unaware of where the next adventure will lead, and you have a chaplain's
  • From serving Fairchild to serving the president

    From a young girl in Baltimore, to a ROTC graduate, to commander of the 92nd Services Squadron at Fairchild, and now on to be the Air Force military aide to the president of the United States. These are just a few achievements that have taken Maj. Gina Humble, 92nd Services Squadron commander, around the country and finally landed her in the White
