Guidon passed as 21st Space Wing changes command (U.S. Air Force photo by Craig Denton)

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Col. Thomas G. Falzarano (right) receives the 21st Space Wing guidon from Brig. Gen. Matthew W. Davidson, 14th Air Force vice commander, as he assumes command during the wing’s change of command ceremony July 10, 2019, at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado. He oversees the Air Force’s fifth largest wing which consists of a work force of about 4,300 space professionals worldwide.

By Staff Sgt. Alexandra M. Longfellow | 21ST SPACE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Col. Thomas G. Falzarano took command of the 21st Space Wing from Col. Todd R. Moore in a change of command ceremony July 10, 2019. Brig. Gen. Matthew W. Davidson, 14th Air Force vice commander, presided over the transfer of command. Before the changeover occurred, Moore had a few words for Team Pete. “Regardless of the mission, regardless of the shift work, regardless of the weather, regardless of the demands, regardless of the ambiguity, you have been superior,” Moore said. “You have exceeded my expectations for discipline, aggressiveness and creativity.” Moore had a few words for the wing’s new commander. “I am so incredibly thankful for the officer who is replacing me,” Moore said. “Col. Falzarano is a friend and will be a great wing commander. There is no limit to the new heights this wing can achieve with your [audience] full support to his outstanding leadership.” During the ceremony, Moore handed the blue and yel-



low guidon to Davidson, who in turn handed the flag to Falzarano, signifying the passing of command. “The people of the 21st Space Wing are amazingly talented and endlessly motivated,” Davidson said. “This is day one with you as the leader of their team.” Falzarano spoke to member of Team Pete and thanked Moore for his leadership and friendship. “Together, you have set the standard for how to lead with integrity, humility and passion,” Falzarano said. “Leadership done right is a relay race and you have handed over the baton giving this team a commanding lead.” The Knights of the 21st SW have a reputation for setting the standard for excellence, Falzarano continued. “I look forward as we continue to building upon that tradition as a part of the 21st SW team, a part of our team,” Falzarano said. The 21st SW plays a vital role in protecting space for our nation and its allies. The wing provides missile warning and space control to North American Aerospace Defense

Command and U.S. Strategic Command through a network of command and control units and ground-based sensors operated by geographically separated units around the world. The 21st SW is the Air Force’s fifth largest wing and it consists of a work force of about 4,300 space professionals worldwide. The wing covers the globe in more than 20 locations across seven countries with more than 30 units. “Some 23 years ago I began working on Peterson AFB and I have been in and around the 21st SW family ever since,” Falzarano said. “On this same flightline, I learned how to build a pallet and load an 18-wheeler onto a C-5. It has been an honor to once again be a part of your community.” Before taking command of the wing, Falzarano was the executive officer to the commander of Air Force Space Command and the Joint Force Space Component Command. This is not the first time Falzarano has served in the area. He served at the 50th Space Wing at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado from 1996-2000. He also served at Headquarters Air Force Space Command from 2004-2008 and again in 2018.

They set forth, researching form, function and gear, and overcome another personal weakness. As life allowed, they

kept working and improving their perceived shortcomings, always pushing themselves to face the next personal improvement challenge. Over time, the hard work and dedication spent improving themselves made it clear they could be successful at anything and everything they put their mind to. No one ever saw the hours of self-sacrifice and struggle, only the results. In reality, all the flaws were there as they are with anyone. The difference was the time spent identifying things within themself that could be improved, making the choice and then committing to follow through. As Colin Powell says, “There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, learning from failure.” There are no “superhumans” or perfect leaders in the Air Force. Sadly, there is no magic, radioactive spider or comet from space. However, deliberate actions towards a goal can get you close. Recognize your strengths, but take the time to identify your weaknesses; don’t allow your shortcomings to limit you. Face them head-on and impose your will. You might surprise yourself and become the perceived “superhuman” or at least a better version of yourself.

The United States Postal Service contracted postal unit (CPU) on Peterson Air Force Base may cease operations on July 15, 2019 due to contract negotiations between the USPS and their contractor on PAFB. Should the CPU services cease, there will be an impact on commercial postal services for the base population. The impact is associated only with the services at the counter inside the interior glass door — stamps, weighing, services for postage, and collection for outgoing mail. The USPS will continue to deliver mail to base housing and personal P.O. boxes on base. Official government mail associated with our missions is separate, managed by the wing, and will remain unaffected. The nearest USPS postal office is the Cimarron Hills post office off Galley Road.


Please join us as we slip and slide for the Great Wolf Family Retreat July 28-29, 2019. All expenses provided to include Sunday evening snacks, Monday breakfast, water park access, and lodging.

Your piece of the puzzle matters

(U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Frank Casciotta)

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Staff Sgt. Heather Heiney, a 302nd Airlift Wing photojournalist, takes photos on the flight line at Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, July 3, 2019.

By Staff Sgt. Heather Heiney | 302ND AIRLIFT WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — When I was 10 years old I hand-wrote a short story about a slave girl’s dreams of a kinder world and fell in love with writing. Then, when I was 21 years old I took out-of-focus photos of a giant yellow leaf drifting down a stream in Hawaii and fell in love with photography. Since those moments, storytelling is all I’ve wanted to do. Luckily, I was able to join the public affairs career field right off the bat and I’ve gotten to tell so many amazing stories. Like the one about a colonel with multiple sclerosis who fought to continue serving. Or the one about Airmen who came together and helped after a devastating flood in Louisiana. Or the one about what it’s like to fly through a hurricane and how it smells like hot asphalt. Getting the words just right in a story or perfectly preserving a moment through a photograph makes me feel like I’ve leapt off the side of a mountain and I’m free falling with my arms wide open. Or, for those of you to whom that sounds terrifying, they make me feel the same way I felt the other day when I watched my six year old swim across the

deep end of our pool by himself for the first time. I love my job. Yes, some days it’s, “I love my job, I love my job, I love my job,” as I close my eyes and rub my temples. Some days I have a four year old in my office at 7 p.m. pulling keys out of drawers, throwing them at me and yelling, “I just want to go home,” because I have to finish my work, his daycare is long closed, my husband is away on temporary duty and I think it’s too late to ask for help. On days when nothing is going right and the struggle is real, I remind myself of why this is worth it. For me, it’s worth it because being in the military and telling stories about what our incredible men and women do every day makes me feel like I’m contributing to something greater. It also helps that as PA I get to learn about what everyone else is doing throughout the wing and see how all those little puzzle pieces fit together to become our mission as a whole. My husband is security forces and he doesn’t always get to see that bigger picture. Sometimes he’s felt like he

just scanned ID cards at the gate all day and in the monotony of that it’s easy to forget that each scan is a small and necessary piece of keeping the installation safe. He didn’t choose security forces like I chose public affairs, but over the years he’s come to see clearly why it matters and it’s also become all he wants to do. It is so critical for each of us in the military to understand why we serve, how our individual piece contributes to the bigger picture and why what we do is so important. If we don’t know why we’re doing what we’re doing, we won’t give our very best effort and if we don’t give our very best effort, we start to let things slip and then we start to fail. Through my work I’ve had the chance to see that what every single one of you do matters and that without your puzzle piece, the mission could not be accomplished. I hope you can see it too. And whether you serve because it gives you a sense of purpose, or because it gives you opportunities you couldn’t get anywhere else, or because of the financial, medical or educational benefits – remember that reason, especially when the struggle gets real.

The Club kitchen temporarily closing for renovations By Griffin Swartzell | SPACE OBSERVER STAFF WRITER PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The Club on Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, will close its kitchen for remodeling beginning July 19, 2019, in order to meet the changing needs of the Peterson community. While the kitchen is closed, Jennifer Moss, The Club head chef, will be bringing in a food trailer, to be operated by Kirkland Dunning, The Club head manager. Moss says the kitchen is scheduled to reopen on Sept. 9, 2019, though that date is a projection due to the nature of renovation projects. Moss, who has managed The Club for the last eight months, says that renovating the kitchen will make food service operations more efficient, meaning faster service onsite and more flexibility in buffet and catering offerings. She says that as demand for catering events changes and increases, the new kitchen will let Dunning offer more creative menus. While the kitchen is closed, the Colorado Pizza + Sports Grill will remain open but will only serve beverages. Dunning’s food trailer will do business by the bar entrance, drawing customers away from the areas being renovated. He and his team will serve a smaller menu than prepared in the kitchen. Moss says that she and her leadership are still figuring out many of the details with regards to the trailer, but they’ve finalized the menu. It’s not the first renovation The Club has undergone in recent memory. In 2017, the bar area was remodeled to be more inviting to younger Airmen. The bar itself became longer, Moss says, and the space was renovated to be more modern and less like a stereotypical officer’s club of years bygone. While The Club’s kitchen is closed, Moss will transfer many of her kitchen staffers to Greenside, the foodservice concept at the on-base Silver Spruce Golf Course club house, and Strike Zone, at the bowling center. These two facilities will be handling buffet offerings for smaller events. Moss says that she will not offer large event table catering while the kitchen is closed. Further, the lunch buffet offered to club members on Wednesdays through Fridays will not be available during the closure. Moss says the last day The Club kitchen is open is Friday, July 19. Dunning plans to celebrate with a low-country seafood boil of crawfish, shrimp, potatoes and other ingredients. While the kitchen is closed, Dunning’s food trailer will serve food for all Final Friday celebrations.

The kissing bug and Chagas disease By Griffin Swartzell | SPACE OBSERVER STAFF WRITER | Staff Sgt. Quesiah Velázquez González | 21ST SPACE WING PUBLIC HEALTH

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment reports that a species of triatomine bug, known more commonly as kissing bugs, has been confirmed in Colorado. These bugs, which feed on the blood of mammals, including humans, are known to spread Chagas disease. The incidence of the disease is low in the U.S. Its symptoms range from none at all to, rarely, life-threatening and is more likely to develop serious symptoms in children. “Nobody wants to get a disease,” said Tech Sgt. Terrence Buckner, 21st Medical Group Public Health non-commissioned officer in charge of force health management. “It’s a complication you don’t need.” Chagas disease comes from a single-celled parasite that lives in the digestive tract of many species of kissing bugs. Typically, kissing bugs defecate on or around the animal or person they’re feeding on, and the parasite infects its host when kissing bug feces is rubbed into the bite wound or a mucous membrane, such as the eye or mouth. "There are two major reasons we don't see more cases of locally-transmitted Chagas disease in the United States," said Kevin Harkins, an entomologist with the Army Public Health Center. "First, our local kissing bugs aren't great disease vectors, and second, most people live in tightly constructed housing that won't let in a tiny mosquito, much less a large insect like a kissing bug." The kissing bug species in the U.S. are less likely to spread Chagas, as they tend to defecate once they’ve crawled off of their prey. Chagas is more commonly spread in Mexico and Central and South America, where local kissing bug species defecate closer to where they eat. They can live indoors in cracks and holes, but widespread use of plastered walls and sealed entryways make that a concern mainly in substandard housing in the U.S. Kissing bugs can be kept out of the home by sealing cracks in windows, walls and roofs, using screen doors and windows, and keeping the home and outdoor pet resting areas clean. Kissing bugs typically live in areas where rodents also nest, often beneath porches, in outdoor dog kennels, and in rock, wood or brush piles. According to Buckner, people are most likely to encounter a kissing bug while camping. "Most people will never encounter a kissing bug, but we

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment reports that a species of triatomine bug, known more commonly as kissing bugs, has been confirmed in Colorado. While the bugs are known to spread Chagas disease, the species in the U.S. are far less likely to spread Chagas than other species. The 21st Medical Group public health recommends people be aware of all insects during the summer. always recommend sleeping under a bed net if you plan to sleep outside or in rough structures like cabins and camping shelters in these states," said Harkins. People infected with Chagas may or may not experience fever or swelling at the infection site, but most don’t experience any symptoms. Untreated, the parasite responsible for Chagas may live in the host’s body for decades, with 20 to 30%

of infected persons experiencing digestive or cardiac issues. Buckner said that locals are much more likely to encounter ticks, mosquitos and other biting insects. “Be aware of all insects during the summer season,” said Buckner. If you suspect you have Chagas disease, please consult your healthcare provider for diagnosis and treatment.

Child care options while on the CDC waitlist


Social Impact Helps Veterans

(U.S. Air Force photo by Shaylee R. Borcsani)

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The Child Development Center offers full-day care and hourly care for active duty military, Department of Defense civilian personnel, reservists and DoD contractors. When children are placed on the CDC waitlist, parents can request their child be enrolled in child care off base. The Air Force Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood fee assistance program can help alleviate some of the increased cost depending on the sponsor’s eligibility and total family income.

Mt. Carmel proudly salutes Goat Patch Brewing Company’s, “It Takes a Tribe Initiative,” a year-long effort celebrating two local non-profits. When Goat Patch visitors order award-winning, It Takes a Tribe Red Ale, they receive a token to cast a vote representing a 25-cent donation to one of two organizations. At the Goat Patch Anniversary Party, July 27, 11 am-9 pm, a check will be presented to Mt. Carmel (and the other non-profit) representing the year-long initiative. “The minute we opened our doors we started giving back to our community and this is a big part of it,” said Justin Grant, former Army Ranger & Owner. “This is why July is such an important time - you can bring your friends and vote over and over in support of great organizations, up to and including our Anniversary Party.” Goat Patch is located at the former Lincoln Elementary School, 2727 N.

expensive than on-base care, but if a child care slot is not available through base facilities, Child Care Aware of America runs a fee assistance program that will help offset the increased cost. “Eligible sponsors can apply to participate in the Air Force Military Child Care in Your Neighborhood (MCCYN) fee assistance program,” stated Jerome. In order to qualify for the program, an eligible Air Force sponsor must first enroll their child in the Military Child Care website, and the child must be placed on the waitlist. The MCCYN application is completed online and Child Care Aware of America uses Military Child Care to verify the status of all requests. “As families apply to the fee assistance programs, they are assigned a child care coordinator,” Jerome said. “The coordinator processes any changes, updates and recertifications as well as enforce policy changes when appropriate.” Once the application is approved, the fee assistance stays in place for one year. To receive assistance for an additional year, the sponsor would need to recertify their application. “A family’s child care coordinator will serve as their primary point of contact throughout their eligibility period and/or until the child ages out of the program,” said Jerome. To learn more about MCCYN please visit the Child Care Aware of America website: fee-assistance/.

PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The arrival of summer marks the beginning of the permanent change of station season. While arriving at a new duty station can be stressful, finding child care can be even more daunting when parents are confronted with the Child Development Center waitlist. The waitlist for the Peterson Air Force Base CDC varies daily. The various aspects that determine your wait time are the program your child needs to be enrolled in, the number of daily registrations, and the different priority levels of those registrations. Although this may seem to be an added stress, the CDC has a couple of solutions that will help you find care while you are on the waitlist. “Family Child Care homes are personal businesses where care is offered out of a person’s home and the providers can set their own fees,” said Lisa Jerome, Child and Youth Services chief. “An FCC home is either a licensed on-base house or an affiliated off-base home. Both types of FCC homes are approved by the 21st Mission Support Group commander.” If your child is between the ages of 5 and 12, he or she can be enrolled in school-aged care at the R.P. Lee Youth Center on base. “If space is not available in the programs, the family child care coordinator can assist with finding care off the installation through Colorado Shines and the Child Care Aware of America organization,” said Jerome. The price of off-base care can be more

U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Cade Cavanagh, a cadet first class at the U.S. Air Force Academy, uses the high-tech Pilot Training Next program at the Academy to learn basic aviation skills. This summer, the Academy and Air Education and Training Command are hosting training sessions to explore the benefits of exposing students to aviation skills using virtual reality technology.

By Jennifer Spradlin | U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY PUBLIC AFFAIRS U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Colorado Springs high school students and recent Air Force Academy graduates are flying together -- in the classroom -- thanks to training devices that simulate the T-6 Texan II training aircraft. The Academy is hosting summer training sessions in partnership with Air Education and Training Command to explore the benefits of exposing students to basic aviation skills using virtual reality technology. “Advances in technology have led us to really consider how we train potential pilots -- is there a better way? We think there is huge value in using these simulators to access realistic training scenarios sooner and more often than we have done in the past, said Capt. Joshua Thomson, a Pilot Training Next instructor, based at Joint Base San AntonioRandolph, Texas. Thomson is assisting Academy instructors during the summer sessions. “When I went to pilot training in 2011, we would have a poster on the wall, and we would sit in front of the poster at night, and we would chair f ly,” Thomson said. “Staring at the poster, we would say ‘I am going to do this, and then I am going to do this at this time.’ These

simulators are like really fancy chair f lying, which allows [students] to develop really good memorization skills, optimizing rehearsal and providing more realistic rehearsal and preparation.” High school students were included in the summer session as a community outreach effort to inspire local youth to pursue aviation and STEM-related fields. Summer session students use technology to repeatedly perform a series of specific tasks, such as takeoffs, landings and flying in patterns, prior to ever using them in the air. Like students in the actual PTN program, the participants can work on these skills at their own pace without concern for weather or fuel consumption. “I am just hoping to learn how to fly as much as possible prior to flight training, if I’m selected,” said Cadet 1st Class Cade Cavanagh. “In this course, we start in the sky and focus on how to make the plane fly with no other airplanes around, no other radio calls -- concentrating on one thing at a time. It’s a much more efficient way to train than you would be able to in a regular aircraft.” The Academy recently modernized its four-year

“I found the instruction rigorous as well as beneficial. I have directly used many topics discussed in my classes within days at my job.”

Airmanship Program to inspire cadets towards rated careers and ensure graduates awarded rated assignments possess the qualities necessary to excel in undergraduate pilot training. “The program works in conjunction with live flight training at the Academy’s airfield while also providing character and leadership building experiences that educates all cadets on Airmanship fundamentals,” said Col. John Garver, the Academy's operations and analysis director This pre-commissioning training model integrates with current PTN efforts, providing an accelerated path for Academy cadets to move into Air Force operational units. Editor's note: Pilot Training Next is part of AETC’s initiative to “re-imagine” how learning is delivered to Airmen, focused on how Airmen learn and using emerging technology to train them better and faster and foster deeper learning. The technology used includes virtual reality, artificial intelligence and data analytics, which can be tailored to the training environment and individual student. The PTN offers students the opportunity to learn in a collaborative, learner-centric environment, in line with AETC’s redesigned Continuum of Learning model.

HILL AIR FORCE BASE, Utah (AFNS) — An Air Force program designed to attract, inspire and develop the next generation of our nation’s scientific and technical workforce is underway at Hill Air Force Base. The Leadership Experience Growing Apprenticeships Committed to Youth, or LEGACY, program is an Air Force program aimed at building interest in science, technology, engineering and math through summer craftsman camps and paid summer apprenticeships while showing how STEM applies to the world around us. Kerry Reed, Hill AFB’s LEGACY program site lead, explained the objective of the program, and this new and innovative approach to foster and maintain youth interest in STEM. “The primary goal of the program is to create a STEM pipeline by taking children and young adults ages 11-22 through the LEGACY program. The program exposes them at a young age to STEM subjects using fun and interesting hands-on experiments and projects, with combined interactive education and field trips,” Reed said. “The children see and experience how STEM principles are making a difference in their daily lives.” The Air Force LEGACY program was started at WrightPatterson AFB, Ohio, and has been in existence for three years. The program is intended to address future predictions of possible personnel shortfalls in STEM-related career fields throughout the Air Force. According to the U.S. Department of Education, 16% of American high school seniors are proficient in math and interested in a STEM career. Contrast that with employment demands in STEM occupations growing at a rate of more than 24% over the last decade versus 4% for non-STEM occupations. The program has been specifically tailored toward expanding the pool of STEM-career qualified individuals and is intended to create a positive influence on recruiting and hiring scientists, engineers and technical subject matter

experts in the future. “Many programs have given children the opportunity to attend a week-long, STEM-related camp,” Reed said. “What makes LEGACY new and different is the program provides a pathway, year after year, for students to continue to learn and develop an interest, talent and career in a STEM field.” The program is broken into three phases: The first phase, “Craftsman Camp,” is designed for youth ages 11-15. These free camps offer students opportunities to engage with their peers by participating in hands-on activities while building self-confidence, learning teamwork and an interest in STEM. Phase two, “Junior Apprentice,” is for youth at least 16 years old in grades 10-12. Students experience a six to eight week paid internship allowing them the opportunity to work side-by-side with multiple mentors from their respective base, while getting exposure to real-world research and showcasing their projects at the end of the session. The third and final phase, “Apprentice,” is an Air Force paid summer apprenticeship for college students. Building on their experience from the Junior Apprentice phase, students work under the tutelage of a mentor and are expected to be more independent and have more responsibility, while preparing for a STEM career after graduation. “The program involves lessons and skills that can help students throughout their lives, regardless of the path they choose,” Reed said. “Our goal is to give them exciting and new opportunities that lead to STEM-related degrees and eventually, STEM career paths. A child cannot grow up to be something that they don’t even know exists.” Currently there are five Air Force bases participating in the LEGACY program. In addition to Hill and Wright-Patterson AFBs, the United States Air Force Academy, Colorado, Robins AFB, Georgia and Eglin AFB, Florida, also have programs.

U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Larimer County officials have positively identified the remains recovered in Rocky Mountain National Park Friday as those of U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Candidate Micah Tice.

By Staff Reports | U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY PUBLIC AFFAIRS U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — Larimer County officials have positively identified the remains recovered in Rocky Mountain National Park Friday as those of U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Candidate Micah Tice. Tice, 20, was last seen alive on the trail by other hikers Nov. 24, 2018, prior to a severe weather system moving into the area. His vehicle was located by the National Park Service Nov. 26. Rescue attempts led by the National Park Service, volunteers and a team from the Academy’s Mountaineering Club, were hampered by extreme winds, bitter temperatures and deep snow as they conducted searches at elevations greater than 10,000 ft. “I would like to thank the National Park Service staff and the many others who

worked to find Micah in what were truly extreme conditions,” said Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, Air Force Academy superintendent. Earlier this month, volunteers found part of a shoe, book pages and a watch they believe to have belonged to Tice and turned the items over to the police, which transferred the items to the NPS. Tice’s remains were located in an area previously targeted by rescuers following up on cell phone information during the initial search. “On behalf of the entire Academy, I would like to express our deepest condolences to the Tice family,” Silveria said. “At this difficult time, we hope they can take some comfort from the thoughts and prayers of the entire USAFA family and Colorado Springs community. Micah was a tremendous young man with a bright future and we all feel his loss.”

Colorado reservists make impact abroad

By Tech. Sgt. Frank Casciotta | 302ND AIRLIFT WING

PETERSON AIR FORCE, Colo. — Reserve Citizen Airmen from the 302nd Logistics Readiness Squadron spent two weeks bolstering wartime readiness for U.S. Air Forces in Europe and the U.S. Africa Command at the War Reserve Materiel Central Regional Storage Facility in Luxembourg. The 11 reservists who went on the trip assembled and readied 50 Unit Type Codes. These UTCs are like Lego sets, but instead of having blocks to build a toy castle, they contain a wide variety of equipment and material used to construct forward operating bases in deployed locations. They are also worth nearly $2 billion. “One day you have nothing. Thirty days later, you have an operational base,” said Senior Master Sgt. Carl Fink, the 302nd Logistics Readiness Squadron’s materiel management superintendent who coordinated the trip. “These UTCs have the stuff needed to build anything from a flight line to a kitchen. It just depends on what the combatant commanders overseas need.” The War Reserve Materiel Central Regional Storage Facility is managed by the 86th Materiel Maintenance Squadron, which is stationed out of Ramstein Air Base, Germany. The massive compound holds more than 85 percent of the Air Force War Reserve materiel in Europe. “Working with this group of reservists has been one of the best experiences in my 20 years of service,” Master Sgt. Noel Arquisola, 86th MMS. “Their positive attitude, willingness to learn and work ethic were truly unquestionable.” Integrating with different teams from the 86th MMS, the reservists assisted with a 300 percent asset build-up while simultaneously completing their own training requirements and certifications. “You’re talking about putting a logistics team together in a very short timeframe to complete multiple tasks with little-to-no prior experience in the WRM realm,” said Arquisola. “Nevertheless, the team showed cohesiveness, focus and they were extremely productive. As true professionals, every individual from the 302nd LRS Materiel Management team performed impressively.” Fink says he sought out the 86th MMS because of their unique mission and the training opportunity it provided to his Airmen. “This is such an important mission for our career field that very few of our Airmen, including active duty, ever touch,” said Fink. “I wanted them to learn the WRM sustainment mission to see the impact it has on Air Force contingency operations and bare basing activities. Training is always the bottom line though and this was a great trip for that.”
