The 31st Test and Evaluation Squadron recently honored 16 dedicated crew chiefs during a recognition ceremony in Hangar 1810 June 14. The ceremony marked a milestone that coincided with the squadron’s recent acquisition of its first F-35 Lightning II aircraft specifically assigned for operational test and evaluation.
Since the introduction of the first crew chief, Charles Edward Taylor, who built the engine used in the Wright Flyer and helped make the first recorded human-powered flight possible, the aircraft mechanic has played an invaluable part through the advancement of aviation over the past 110 years. Here at Edwards, that instrumental role continues today, which is why the 31st Test and Evaluation Squadron honored 16 dedicated crew chiefs during a recognition ceremony in Hangar 1810 June 14. The ceremony marked a milestone that coincided with the squadron’s recent acquisition of its first F-35 Lightning II aircraft specifically assigned for operational test and evaluation. “It was only fitting that we take the time to recognize this important role and those of all aircraft maintainers and to recognize the accomplishments and milestone of becoming Air Combat Command’s first selected dedicated crew chiefs on the world’s most advanced fighter aircraft,” said Lt. Col. Darrin Dronoff, 31st TES Logistics and Test Management director. “Likewise, they also
represent all of the other maintainers across the 31st TES that work so hard behind the scenes to support this incredible aircraft. Finally, it also reaffirms the bond of trust between the pilot and the crew chiefs that has been in place since the early days of aviation.” Of the 16 DCCs, each crew chief was presented with a specially-designed, tail number patch and squadron patch. “Each crew chief has demonstrated their skills over several years and completed an in-depth certification program. The top candidates were then selected by their leadership to become dedicated crew chiefs and assistant dedicated crew chiefs to the squadron’s recently acquired F-35s,” said Dronoff. “The best of the best become the team assigned to the squadron flagship, aircraft tail number AF5004.” In addition to the presentation of patches, each DCC had their name stenciled on their assigned aircraft, which marked a significant moment in their career. “After only being in the Air Force for five years, being chosen to be one of the first operational test Assistant DCCs was an See CREW CHIEF, Page 5
Test Pilot School graduates Class 12B Twenty-four students graduated from the United States Air Force Test Pilot School during a ceremony held here, June 15 where they each were awarded a Master of Science in Flight Test Engineering from Air University. It was the culmination of an intense, 48-week program that included more than 2,500 hours of academics and approximately 120 hours of in-flight training; transforming top operational pilots, navigators and engineers into elite flight test professionals. They will now be integrated into teams throughout the flight test enterprise and begin shaping the technology and weapon systems of the future for the Air Force, sister services and allied nations. Congratulations to Class 12B! Experimental test pilots Maj. David Allamondola Capt. Nicklos Beihl Capt. Hans Buckwalter Maj. Paul Calhoun Capt. Aaron Frey

Filling squares by Senior Master Sgt. Vincent Miller Barksdale AFB, La.
As Airmen, we are more than familiar with the need to fill the proverbial squares as we strive to progress in our military career. To be competitive for awards and promotions, we must commit ourselves to goals such as education, passing the fitness exam, and community service. It is through completion of these expectations and requirements that we become better leaders, managers and Airmen. However, somewhere along the way, we fail to internalize the importance of why we fill these squares. In reality, the squares are designed to make us better and provide a separation between the willing and unwilling – the committed and uncommitted. The squares help identify Airmen who are motivated and willing to go the extra mile to better themselves, their team, and the Air Force. It is this drive towards self-improvement
Commentary that separates one from the masses and establishes his or her true identity. One square that requires a great deal of commitment is the pursuit of education. As we continually strive to become that “whole person,” we must challenge ourselves intellectually and work toward attaining a certification; associate, bachelor’s, or even a master’s degree. Attending school is not easy and takes sacrifice. It means spending your time writing a research paper, while everyone else is enjoying the weekend. It means taking your textbook on the flightline and studying every chance you get. It means being the security forces Airman I saw reading a biology book while eating breakfast in the dining facility. At this moment some of you are saying there is no time to attend school; high operations tempo, 40-hour work week, and spending time with family are a few reasons that prevent you from taking classes. Additionally, some of you may feel we should be evaluated solely on work performance. Honestly, these excuses are hindering you from progress-
Combating stress by Lt. Col. Paul Tombarge Peterson AFB, Colo.
Stress. The Oxford dictionary defines stress as “a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances.” We’ve all experienced it; some more than others. With the continuing budget shortfalls, uncertainty of sequestration furloughs, a pending compliance inspection and the upcoming summer move cycle, many of us are feeling much more stress than usual. The key
is how we deal with that stress. Bev Klug, director of Mindfulness-Based Programs at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, notes that there are two distinct types of stress – chronic and acute. Acute stress is temporary and can often be motivating, such as nearing a deadline. Chronic stress continues to build and can lead to long-term problems. We all have different thresholds for stress, but there are a few tools we can all use to help prevent chronic stress from taking effect. First, realize that whatever you might be
June 21 , 2013
ing and improving yourself. If you continue to hide behind them, like I once did, you will never take yourself to the next level. It took a long time to realize that fear and toxic excuses prevented me from seeking an education. Constant mentorship and a few one-way “conversations” from a chief master sergeant propelled me down the road of education. Dedicating yourself to filling the squares is a decision only you can make. By filling them you demonstrate the willingness of constant self-improvement and unwavering commitment, which directly benefits you, your team, and the Air Force. Filling the squares also establishes separation from your peers and it is through this separation that you are most likely to fulfill your career aspirations and goals. The choice is yours and yours alone. Be willing to accept the consequences. Don’t say, “He/she only got Senior Airman below-the-zone because he went to school.” Rather, you must say, “I lost because I chose not to go to school. I chose not to fill the squares.”
going through is probably temporary and you are probably not the only one experiencing it. Although it may not seem like it at the time, whatever challenge you are facing will eventually pass and if you share what you’re going through with a friend or co-worker, you’ll likely find you’re not alone. Second, strive to have a positive attitude. Don’t dwell on a problem or event that happened in the past. Instead, try to learn from the event and move on in a positive direction. The Air Force’s Comprehensive Airmen Fitness program identifies “The 5 Cs of positive
behavior” – care, commit, connect, communicate and celebrate. The 5 Cs essentially take the idea of a positive attitude and apply it to our daily lives. Care for our wingmen by showing respect and support, commit to excellence in all we do, connect with others, communicate in a positive way, and celebrate positive results and accomplishments. A good attitude really is contagious. Third, if your objective seems out of reach, set smaller, more attainable, interim goals See STRESS, Page 4

News 461st FLTS gets new boss
by Laura Mowry Staff Writer
Lt. Col. George Schwartz, who had been leading the “Deadly Jesters” since January 2012 handed the reins to Lt. Col. Andrew Allen, who took command of the 461st Flight Test Squadron June 11 during a ceremony held at the F-35 Integrated Test Force complex. Col. Christopher Azzano, outgoing 412th Operations Group commander presided over the ceremony and recalled the ITF’s progress under Schwartz’s command. “The workload has been intense, but the progress has been huge. Test production is up 40 percent in a year and a half and the addition of three more aircraft make this team that much more capable. This enabled an amazing string of firsts. First night flight. First air-to-air weapons launch. First airto-ground weapons launch. First defensive countermeasures. First data link to share information with another aircraft. First high angle of attack testing and the list goes on,” said Azzano. “[Schwartz’s] entire tenure was defined by the goal of turning a cool looking, great flying aircraft into a weapon system with unprecedented lethality and survivability,” he added. Before departing for Washington state for his next assignment, Schwartz reflected on the significance of the F-35 ITF’s mission and commitment to the warfighter. “The vision for this program is staggering when you look at it. Right now there’s over 2,500 aircraft planned for the Air Force, Marines, the Navy and eight partner countries. It will strengthen the bonds to our allies and be the backbone of U.S. air combat operations for generations. The road to achieving this vision runs directly through Edwards Air Force Base and directly through this ITF,” Schwartz said. He also discussed the character and talent of those who work at the ITF and the lasting impacts of what their contributions mean to the future of our combat forces. “Developing these aircraft requires the ingenuity, resourcefulness and hard work from all of you and we’re lucky these are hallmarks of our organization because we are pushing technology in ways it’s never been used,” said Schwartz. “When it arrives here and doesn’t work, you’re the ones who figure out how to make it work, create value, and a

Col. Christopher Azzano, former 412th Operations Group commander, hands the 461st Flight Test Squadron guidon to Lt. Col. Andrew Allen during a change of command ceremony June 11, 2013. Allen assumed command of the squadron, which conducts developmental testing for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
fifth generation fighter that will change the security environment forever.” Under Schwartz’s command, the men and women began putting the teeth into the F-35 and it is Allen that will take the initial F-35 developmental test program further. “Lt. Col. Andrew ‘Growler’ Allen is the kind of leader we need to take the F-35 down the home stretch to combat status. Growler has a background perfectly suited to the 461st,” said Azzano. In addition to his F-15 combat experience, Allen is a seasoned test pilot who has extensive fifth generation fighter experience with the F-22 Raptor. He is a distinguished graduate of Squadron Officer School and four formal flying programs. Allen returned to Edwards from his previous assignment at the Pentagon, where he served on The Joint Staff, J-8 as the lead for The Joint Staff Assessment Cell responsible for analysis of joint requirements for Department of Defense acquisition programs coming before the Joint Requirements Oversight Council. “This experience and his hard charging leadership style make Growler the perfect choice to lead F-35 development into its final stages. And his family values will help

the 461st balance a daunting test load with other equally important priorities at home,” said Azzano. After assuming command of the 461st FLTS, Allen let the men and women of the F-35 ITF know that they have his full commitment to the mission and to their care. He also emphasized the importance of teamwork, working together seemlessly to accomplish the mission. “I firmly believe that the success or failure of our mission hinges on the integration and teamwork between the government and our contract partners. I know we all share the same goal of a team without division,” said Allen. We must continually foster an environment where one cannot easily notice differences between our military, government and contractor personnel.” Allen reflected on his previous assignment, sharing his perspective on the critical role that the F-35 ITF has in shaping the stealth fighter for not only the Air Force, but sister services and allied nations. “The longer I worked in the Joint Staff, the more I came to realize how important the F-35 is to the future of our joint force and to See CHANGE, Page 4

We will not get another chance to recapitalize and modernize our tactical aviation inventories in the Air Force, the Marine Corps and the Navy along with our partner nations for many, many decades,” said Allen. It is the work of the F-35 ITF that will ensure air dominance in a wide variety of future combat scenarios. “The capabilities that the F-35 will bring to the fight are critical to the joint force and to the future of the air dominance mission.

No butts about it, smoking can be deadly to environment as well
Everyone knows that smoking can be hazardous to one’s health, but as we’ve recently seen on base, not properly disposing of lit cigarettes can be hazardous to the environment. Especially during the summer. Two incidents June 17 should serve as reminders to smokers to properly dispose of their butts, particularly during the windy summer days the High Desert has entered. The Edwards AFB Fire Department was called out for two separate fires; one in front of the Main Clinic and one on South Base at the Aero Club. Both were believed
to be started by smoldering cigarettes. 412th Test Wing leadership and the Ground Safety Office wants to remind Team Edwards that tobacco use on the installation shall be restricted to Designated Tobacco Areas. Tobacco use outside of DTAs, including while walking anytime outside of DTAs, is prohibited. DTAs will be kept in good condition reflecting their surroundings. DTAs should be away from common points of facility entry/egress and not in front of buildings or air intake ducts. The

distance of a DTA from building entry/ egress is to be determined by the squadron commander but will be no less than 50 feet. DTAs shall be a minimum of 50 feet from pedestrian walkways, to include parking lots, to prevent secondhand smoke exposure to passersby. No DTA shall be within 100 feet of playgrounds to minimize the health risks to children playing, entering or exiting the area. Tobacco includes, but is not limited to, cigars, cigarettes, electronic-ciga-
rettes, stem pipes, water pipes, hookahs and smokeless products that are chewed, dipped or sniffed. Dispose of smoking material in approved containers specifically designed for smoking material. Stencil these containers or cans “SMOKING MATERIAL ONLY.” Disposal of waste, trash or any combustible material in ashtrays or smoking material cans is prohibited. Saturate and completely extinguish smoking material prior to disposal into outside waste dumpsters.

Former Edwards test pilot selected for astronaut class NASA officials selected an Airman as one of the eight military and civilian candidates to become an astronaut trainee. After an 18-month search, officials chose Lt. Col. Tyler N. Hague, the Department of Defense deputy chief of the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization, out of more than 6,100 applicants. Hague is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo., Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the U.S. Air Force Test Pilot School, Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. The 2013 astronaut candidate class comes from the second largest number of applications NASA has ever received. The group will receive a wide array of technical training at space centers around the globe to prepare for missions to low-Earth orbit, an asteroid and Mars. “These new space explorers asked to join NASA because they know we’re doing big, bold things here — developing missions to go farther into space than ever before,” said NASA Administrator
Charles Bolden. “They’re excited about the science we’re doing on the International Space Station and our plan to launch from U.S. soil to there on spacecraft built by American companies. And they’re ready to help lead the first human mission to an asteroid and then on to Mars.” The new astronaut candidates will begin training at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston in August. “This year we have selected eight highly-qualified individuals who have demonstrated impressive strengths academically, operationally, and physically” said Janet Kavandi, the director of Flight Crew Operations at Johnson Space Center. “They have diverse backgrounds and skill sets that will contribute greatly to the existing astronaut corps. Based on their incredible experiences to date, I have every confidence that they will apply their combined expertise and talents to achieve great things for NASA and this country in the pursuit of human exploration.”

Welsh: Sequestration continues to drain crucial capabilities from America’s Air Force by Master Sgt. Angelita Colón-Francia Air Force News
The Air Force’s top officer reported on the growing strain sequestration has put on readiness, personnel and modernization to a group of civic and industry leaders attending the Air Force Association’s monthly breakfast in Arlington, Va., June 17. Sequestration has hit the Air Force hard, said Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III. Like the rest of the Defense Department, the Air Force has seen severe reductions in funding, leading to concerns about critical mission factors including the readiness of pilots and aircraft that aren’t flying today. “We’ve got folks sitting in fighter squadrons looking out of windows at aircraft that they haven’t touched since the first of April,” Welsh said. Currently, the Air Force has stood down 33 squadrons, 12 of which are combat-coded fighter and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance units. Another seven squadrons have been reduced to a basic mission capable rating. Even before sequestration, there was a readiness crisis in the Air Force, Welsh said. The severe cutbacks required by the sequester will further downgrade force readiness beyond the current fiscal year if a budget agreement is not reached.
“We can’t just all of a sudden accelerate training and catch up,” he said. “It costs up to 2 1/2 times as much to retrain a squadron as it does to keep it trained.” Welsh emphasized the Air Force’s efforts to continue to save where possible. “We’re looking for every option for where you can cut money — every modernization/ recapitalization program,” Welsh said. Regardless of reductions, the service cannot perform its air superiority mission with today’s aging F-15 and F-16 fighters, and limited number of F-22s, the chief of staff said, making the new F-35 non-negotiable. “When we truncated our F-22 buy, we ended up with a force that can’t provide air superiority in more than one area at a time,” Welsh said. “The F-35 is going to be part of the air superiority equation whether it was intended to be, originally, or not.” Welsh pointed out other countries will begin flying stealthy, highly-advanced fighters in the coming years, and if the U.S. doesn’t have the aircraft to counter them in a highend fight it will be in trouble. There’s nothing else that can do what the F-35 can, he said. “Out there where people fight and die, for real, if a fourth-generation aircraft meets a fifth-generation aircraft, the fourth-generation aircraft may be more efficient, but it’s also dead,” Welsh said.

Time to get a California driver’s license by Airman 1st Class William Kiss 412th TW Judge Advocate
If you are over the age of 18 and do not have your driver’s license, obtaining one can be a very time consuming process. In California, you can drive with any state license as long as you remain a visitor. If you decide to change your legal residence to California, then you have 10 days to get a California license. Obtaining a California license is one step toward establishing legal residency in California. If this is your first time getting a license, the best thing to do is make an appointment with the DMV; this will give you much faster service. After making an appointment with the DMV, you will need to complete an application form DL 44, give a thumb print, and have your picture taken. After that, you will need to verify your social security number, birth date and legal presence, provide your true full name, and pay the application fee. After completing the paperwork to obtain your license, you will need to complete the testing portion of your driver’s license application. You will need to pass a vision exam first. Then you will take the traffic laws and sign test. The traffic laws and sign test consists of 36 multiple choice
questions and you will have three chances to pass (a sample test can be found online at http://www.dmv.ca.gov/dl/dl_info. htm#two500). If you pass both of these tests, you will be issued a driver’s permit. Somebody who is 18 or older and holds a valid California license must be in the car with you at all times while driving on a permit. In order to obtain a driver’s license, you must schedule an appointment for your driving test (tests are not given without an appointment). When you show up for your driving test, you will need to show proof of insurance and proof of financial responsibility. Upon completion of the driving test, you will be issued an interim license, which is valid for 90 days. After California processes all of your information, you will receive your official photo driver’s license in the mail.

Scholarship program helps students pay for college chael J. Dowling. “When you think about these young men and women, they are the best of the best,” Dowling said. “According to Scholarship Managers, there were 4,675 people who applied, and 670 who will receive a scholarship. Doing the math, they represent the top 15 percent. This means they’re exceptional.” “Many of them are high school valedictorians,” he said. “This $1,500 scholarship helps them move forward in their pursuit of higher education.” Commissary vendors, manufacturers, brokers, suppliers and
by Kevin Robinson DeCA public affairs specialist
More than $1 million in financial assistance will go to 670 students, considered to be among the nation’s best and brightest, thanks to this year’s Scholarships for Military Children program. Since its start in 2001, the Scholarships for Military Children program has awarded $1,500 scholarships to 7,412 children of active duty, Guard and Reserve, and retired service members worldwide. The Defense Commissary Agency participates in the program by accepting applications of eligible children and submitting their packages to Scholarship Managers, a national, nonprofit, scholarship management services organization. Stores celebrate the achievements of their local selections with a ceremony in the commissary. These ceremonies create a lot of excitement for the military community as they acknowledge the achievements of their recipients, said DeCA Deputy Director Mi-
the general public fund the program through donations. And, all donations are applied solely to funding the scholarships, said Jim Weiskopf, vice president of Fisher House Foundation, a nonprofit organization that assists family members with temporary lodging when they visit hospitalized service members. “We want to thank those companies that have supported this very special quality of life program every year since 2001,” said Weiskopf, whose organization underwrites the cost of administering the scholarship program. “I also want to thank the store directors. They do so much more than sell groceries. They are integral parts of their local communities.” During the selection process, Scholarship Managers reviews the applicants’ grade-point averages, their extracurricular and volunteer activities, and their essays on an assigned topic. Two of this year’s 670 scholarship recipients, Kathryn Barisano
and Matthew Schneck, spoke to an audience of commissary employees and industry members at the DeCA scholarship luncheon April 25. The luncheon was held during the twoday 2013 DeCA and American Logistics Association Commissary Roundtable event in Richmond, Va. Barisano, the daughter of a retired soldier, is a senior at Thomas Dale High School in Chester, Va. She is a member of both the National Honor Society and Latin Honor Society, and as the captain of both her school’s varsity field hockey and soccer teams, earned all district, all region, and Metro honors in both sports. Barisano will attend James Madison University in the fall. Schneck, also the son of a retired soldier, is a senior at Prince George High School in Prince George, Va., where he has a 4.88 GPA and is ranked No. 1 in his class of 410 students. He has also earned varsity letters in volleyball, track and field, and soccer. Schneck received the William and Mary Leadership

He will attend Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall, where he plans to major in biomedical engineering; he is in a program that guarantees his acceptance into the university’s School of Medicine upon his graduation. This year’s essay topic was on the applicant’s most-admired presidential first lady. Barisano wrote her essay on Laura Bush, and Schneck penned his on Eleanor Roosevelt. The three most popular topics among the scholarship recipients were Roosevelt, with 224 essays; 105 for Betty Ford, and 75 for current first lady Michelle Obama.

Have fun safely this summer by Ground Safety Office 412th Test Wing
Lately the weather has been 72 degrees one day and 95 degrees the next. Summer is here and it arrived overnight, without any warning. Pretty soon we will be saying “Wow, what a scorcher!” You know the days are going to be a hot, some over 108 degrees Fahrenheit. At work, you reach for a tool to finish your job and start to feel lightheaded. It is probably because you have not eaten much this morning. You can make it until lunch! So you press on with your work. Time passes and your condition has not gotten any better — in fact it is worse! Your breathing has increased, you are sweating profusely and your mouth is dry. Something is wrong! You start to climb down from where you are working but you are almost too weak to move. You feel like you are going to be sick. With no control over your movements, you fall to the ground below. Your co-workers are trying to get your attention but you cannot understand them. You yell, “Help me up guys!” but they don’t respond. Can they hear? All you can see is black...what’s happening? Heat
Exhaustion! That is what’s happening. Heat exhaustion can occur when you are subjected to hot environments and fail to take in enough fluids, salts or both. And even worse, this can lead to a life threatening condition known as a heat stroke. Sun stroke or heat stroke happens when the body’s internal mechanism fails to regulate its core temperature. At this point, the body stops cooling itself through perspiration and can’t get rid of excess heat. Unfortunately, the end result can be death if the body temperature is not lowered immediately! So, if you work in hot environments, it is critical to recognize when you are suffering from a Heat Stress Disorder. Symptoms of Heat Stress Disorders: • Heat Cramps — Symptoms are painful spasms of the muscles. Heat cramps are caused when workers consume large quantities of water but fail to take in enough salt to replace the salt their body lost through sweating. Tired muscles are most susceptible to cramping. • Heat Exhaustion — Symptoms for this disorder are moist, clammy, pale skin; profuse sweating; extreme weakness or fatigue; dry mouth; dizziness; fast pulse; rapid
breathing; muscle cramps and nausea. • Heat/Sun Stroke — Symptoms are a very high body temperature (104 degrees Fahfrenheit or higher); lack of sweat; mental confusion, delirium, or hallucinations; deep breathing and rapid pulse; hot, dry, red or mottled skin; and dilated pupils. Seek medical help at once for this condition. Tips for Prevention: • Acclimatization — Adjust yourself to the heat through short exposure periods followed by longer exposure until your body is accustomed to the heat. It may take 5-7 days of hot weather exposure before the body undergoes changes that make heat more bearable. • Drink lots of Water/Liquids — Replenish the fluid your body is losing through sweating. Not only water, but critical electrolytes such as sodium, potassium and calcium are lost through sweating, so consider using electrolyte drinks to combat heat related disorders. • Education — Know the signs and symptoms of heat stress disorders and act quickly. • Use Your Head — Do not ignore possible symptoms of heat stress disorders.
If you feel very hot, dizzy, nauseous or if your muscles cramp, stop and cool off! Heat Stress Disorders are serious. Workers who have ignored the symptoms have lost their lives. Humans have an ingenious system for regulating body temperature, their very own personal, “natural” air conditioner. We sweat, it evaporates through our skin, and we are cooled off. But this personal air conditioner can fail, and often does, if we overexert when environmental temperatures are high. Be Cool. Know what you have to do to beat the heat!
Blanket Edwards Drug Take Back Day gets authorization unwanted/unused drugs out of house waiver letter extended to July 2
United Healthcare Military & Veterans began serving the TRICARE West region April 1, 2013. Since then, some beneficiaries and providers have experienced service problems related to processing medical referral authorizations. To mitigate delays in patient care, TRICARE Management Activity made an exception to policy and issued a blanket authorization waiver letter allowing TRICARE west region beneficiaries to receive medical care for TRICARE covered benefits without an authorization from United Healthcare. Prior to the original waiver letter expiration date of June 19, United Healthcare conducted stress tests of their medical referral processes across five large west region Military Treatment Facilities. The results of the test identified a major flaw which would require reconciliation before resuming standard processes. As a result, the blanket authorization waiver letter has been extended to July 2, 2013. The 412th Medical Group stands ready to assist all TRICARE beneficiaries with managing medical referral needs. If you need assistance or have any questions, call the 412th MDG Referral Management Center at (661) 275-2259.
The 412th Medical Group, 412th Security Forces Squadron and the Kern County Sheriff’s Department joined forces for Edwards AFB’s Prescription Drug Take Back Day June 14. Folks around base got the opportunity to bring in any unused or expired prescription medicines to the lobby of the Exchange where collection bins were available to collect the discarded items. People dropped off their unwanted prescriptions with no questions asked. The effort brought in 92 pounds of prescription meds from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. On April 27, 742,497 pounds (371 tons) of prescription medications were collected from members of the public at more than 5,829 locations manned by 4,312 state, local, and tribal law enforcement agencies that partnered with DEA on the event. When added to the collections from DEA’s previous five Take-Back events, more than 2.8 million pounds (1,409 tons) of prescription medications have been removed from circulation. The National Prescription Drug TakeBack Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. Plans are in the works for another drug take back day this coming October. From left: Staff Sgt. Ryan Ball and Senior Airman Kenneth Gordon, 412th Security Forces Squadron; Deputy Brandon Routh, Kern County Sheriff’s Department; Master Sgt. Shawna Wesley and Maj. Vanthy Pham, 412th Medical Group; and Lola Becerra, civilian pharmacy technician.
Ninety-two pounds of unwanted prescription medicine were turned in by people around base during Edwards’ Drug Take Back Day June 14.

Chapel Corner Gaining Altitude – Growth opportunities for the week This is a weekly segment in Desert Wings to highlight a spiritual focus for the Edwards community: Through our character – an opportunity to reflect on important issues in our community – Virtue is what happens when someone has made a thousand small choices, requiring effort and concentration, to do something which is good and right but which doesn’t “come naturally”-and then, on the thousand and first time, when it really matters, they find that they do what’s required “automatically.” N.T. Wright Through our prayers – an opportunity to pray for the needs of our community This week’s request: Pray for the strength to make small but right choices, especially when no one is looking.
