SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — The 1st Space Operations Squadron accepted operational control of the Operationally Responsive Space-5 satellite system through United States Strategic Command during a ceremony at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, May 31. “It’s been a lot of work, but it’s a significant accomplishment to see the satellite become fully operational,” said Lt. Col. Mark Bigley, commander of the 1st SOPS. “This significantly increases our space situational awareness.” The ORS-5 furthers the 50th Space Wing’s mission by delivering global, persistent, optical tracking of satellites in geosynchronous orbit. “This enables a whole new level of continuous space situational awareness to ensure all 50th SW and United States geosynchronous assets remain secure, aiding our defense capabilities,” said Capt. John Cantu, systems integration planner and ORS-5 team member with 1st SOPS. Members of the 14th Air Force, 1st and 7th SOPS, the Space and Missile Systems Center’s Space Rapid Capabilities Office, the 18th Space Control Squadron and National Air and Space Intelligence Center supported getting the satellite into operational status, playing a role in ensuring the satellite functions properly and confirming the accuracy and quality of data ORS-5 transmitted. “We made sure our crews were ready for ops acceptance,” Cantu said. “We also worked with these agencies closely to ensure there were no critical issues, performed acquisitions and other essential duties.” Bigley said the rapid four-year concept-to-operations acceptance timeframe easily meets the SpRCO’s intent of “delivering capabilities to the warfighter in operationally relevant time frames,” - an accomplishment of its own. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology Lincoln Laboratorybuilt ORS-5 satellite is one of three low-Earth orbit satellites that 1st SOPS commands. Its services of scanning the geosynchronous-orbit belt assists a region that is home to critical U.S. communications. ORS-5 was launched August 26, 2017 from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.
Pictured is a graphic representation of the Operationally Responsive Space-5 satellite system, which initiated operations May 31, 2018. ORS-5 furthers the 50th Space Wing’s mission by delivering global, persistent, optical tracking of satellites in geosynchronous orbit.
ORS-5’s operations impact both U.S. allies and adversaries, strengthening U.S. space defense. “By increasing the amount of sensor coverage, we are able to cover and defend more aspects of the 50th Space Wing’s mission,” Bigley said. Cantu added ORS-5 is a milestone for 1st SOPS and satellite operations in general. “I’m excited,” he said. “This is a whole new level of awareness, giving us near-constant surveillance and enabling new defensive tactics and techniques.” See ORS-5 page 18
Motorcycle ride memorializes fallen officers
By Tech. Sgt. Wes Wright 50th Space Wing Public Affairs
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — One-hundred riders participated in the 5th Annual Front Range Fallen Officer Memorial Motorcycle Ride that traveled through Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, June 1. The record-setting number of riders first gathered at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, Colorado, before riding through Fort Carson, Schriever AFB, Peterson Air Force Base, and the United States Air Force Academy. The event concluded with a barbeque back at Cheyenne Mountain AFS. “We do this as part of our way of recognizing our law enforcement officers who have fallen in the line of duty such as Deputy Micah Flick from the El Paso County Sheriff’s office,” said Scott Deeds, chief of plans and programs with the 721st Security Forces Squadron and event organizer. “I don’t want these individuals forgotten so we will take the time to remember them and their sacrifice.” According to Deeds, any memorial ride is special but motorcycle riders share a special bond, which mirrors the bond between law enforcement professionals.

One-hundred riders leave Schriever Air Force Base, Colo., as part of the 5th Annual Front Range Fallen Officer Memorial Motorcycle Ride June 1, 2018. The group first gathered at Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station, Colorado, before riding through Fort Carson, Schriever AFB, Peterson Air Force Base, and the United States Air Force Academy.
“Have you noticed, when you see bikers pass each other they often wave,” Deeds asked. “There is a bond on a motorcycle which cannot be accomplished sitting in a car. Now, coupled with our backgrounds in law enforcement, it solidifies our band of brothers.” Two of Schriever AFB’s own were among the band of brothers for the ride. “Wearing the shield comes
with great sacrifice,” said Ronnie James, unit security manager with the 2nd Space Operations Squadron. “As a retired security forces member, I've lost several brothers who fell wearing the shield or badge while defending this great nation. I ride for them.” Lt. Col. Michael Speck, commander of the 50th Security Forces Squadron, also participated in the ride.
“For me, it’s an opportunity to reflect on the service of all in the police business and the ultimate sacrifices of a few,” Speck said. “But more than that, it’s to pay respect to those loved ones still with us who received a call one night or day that drastically changed their lives forever. Those left behind live each day missing See Motorcycle ride page 19

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Balance in all things is the key to happiness and health, at least that is what we are led to believe. Many people talk about the same thing when it comes to your relationship be-
the work life shuffle tween work and life, but I’m here to tell you that the word “balance” may not be the correct term. Balance, by its very definition is “having different parts or elements properly or effectively arranged, proportioned, regulated, equally considered, etc.” The issue is when it comes to work-life versus personal-life there are rarely equal shares of time and consideration given between the two, with normal life usually coming up on the short end of the stick. Just by sheer numbers alone, we spend more time at work than we do with our families, unless you count sleeping. True balance of time is not an attainable goal, to me, it’s more of a constant work-life shuffle. So, what does that mean? Does work life shuffle mean it is impossible to have a life outside of work and be successful in your career as well? Many people share that view, and develop an all-or-nothing mentality tipped toward one side of the scale or the other. Meaning, some people will stay at work countless hours, then take work home and stay on their phone because they feel that is what is expected or they place that pressure on themselves. People tell me all the time, “there is no way I would ever want to be a chief, I enjoy spending time with my family too much.” Are there additional time burdens with certain positions? Yes, but regardless of your rank or position every individual has to make the choice on how to divide their time. Maybe
it means you spent a little more time playing “Fortnite” or “Call of Duty” last night so today you have to not play at all and study your Career Development Courses, or do some extra cardio at the gym because you skipped yesterday. This is no different with work. There are days where you need to shut down your computer and go home early so you don’t miss that soccer game or dance recital. There are days when you will get home and still have work to do on your computer, but it may just mean taking the time to sit down to read a story real quick or play superheroes or play catch for 15 minutes. Now, that may mean you are going to stay up a little later working on that Enlisted Performance Report or awards package or come in early the next day, but that’s the shuffle. It will never be balanced, but when it comes to work life and personal life it really is more about quality versus quantity. Go to that game, sit down and play “Madden,” hang out with that friend who is in town visiting; don’t miss those things you always said you would never miss, just make sure you shuffle afterwards. You only get one life to live so make sure you are making the time for the activities and people you love. The truth is there is no perfect equation for this shuffle and you will get it wrong from time to time and that’s OK, you learn, you adjust, and you move on.

CSAF: 'Family, friends, caregivers — we’re on your wing for life' at Wounded Warrior Games By Staff Sgt. Rusty Frank Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. David L. Goldfein spoke about teamwork and resiliency during the opening ceremony of the Department of Defense Warrior Games at the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colorado, June 2. “There’s this old saying, ‘Age wrinkles the body but quitting wrinkles the soul,’” Goldfein said. “And while all of us grow older, not all of us grow stronger as we age. The athletes and warriors we celebrate this week show us how to grow stronger over time as they conquer the daily challenges in mind, in body, in spirit. Warrior Games athletes are not defined by illness, injury or the invisible wounds of war. They’re defined by their courage, their determination, their grit, their resilience and their friends and family who cheer them on here and at home.” The Air Force is committed to supporting the service’s wounded warriors, their families and caregivers throughout the recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration process. Goldfein said every athlete’s story is unique and deeply personal, but there are common threads of strength and resilience between the athletes. “These Warrior Games allow all of us, from both here and watching from home to recommit that no warrior takes the road to recovery alone,” Goldfein said. “Family, friends and caregivers -- we’re on your wing for life. It’s a full contact team sport. And within the profession of arms it’s family business.” Goldfein also announced a new tradition by presenting an official Warrior Games flag to Air Force Lt. Gen. Gina Grosso, this year’s Warrior Games commander. Star Power at the Ceremony Other senior military leaders attended for the opening ceremony, including Air Force Gen. Paul J. Selva, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who addressed the athletes in attendance. “To all the athletes, thank you for being an inspiration,” Selva said. “This week is all about sportsmanship and camaraderie. It’s about making friends. It’s about being the heroes that you are.” Comedian Jon Stewart served as the master of ceremonies for the event, and pop singer Kelly Clarkson performed a free concert for the athletes and their families at the conclusion of the ceremony. Stewart had jumped earlier with the Air Force’s Wings of Blue parachute team and joked about his trouble keeping his breakfast down. Goldfein told him, “Thank you Jon Stewart for joining the Wings of Blue and jumping out of a perfectly good airplane today. I just hope we were able to replace the breakfast you lost on the way down.” This is Stewart’s third year as host of the Warrior Games. Athletes at the Warrior Games “will go to any lengths for their teammates, for the victory, and I hope you’re not here just to support them but to learn from them,” Stewart told the opening ceremony audience. “Whenever I spend time with the athletes at the Warrior Games,” he added, “I hope that just a fraction of their tenacity, their honor, their grace, their resilience and their teamwork will inspire me to do better in my life every day.” Clarkson said she was honored to return to the Warrior Games. “It was such a blessing to do the first one. It’s such an honor. Thank you so much for your service,” she said. “Thank your families for the sacrifice that you all make.” Lighting the Torch U.S. Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Israel Del Toro Jr., a 2010 inaugural games athlete, began the torch passing to representatives of each branch of the service until retired U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Shanon Hampton held the flame for the big cauldron on the stage. As Goldfein told him to light the cauldron, he reached up to light it, but strong winds prevented him from doing so. Goldfein announced the official opening of the 2018 DoD Warrior Games but Stewart jumped in, getting an assist from stage support for a ladder. A stage hand lit the torch. “Done -- we are open for business,” Stewart said. Hampton said he was honored to carry the torch. “It is difficult to put into words the honor I was given to carry the torch for the Air Force and the Warrior Games. To once again serve with the Air Force, with my teammates, for my country and for God will be a memory I will cherish the rest of my life,” Hampton said. “We all have faced trials, hardship and heartache to get where we are at, but some things are just worth hurting for. Go Air Force!” History and Purpose of the Games This year’s Warrior Games competitions began June 1 and will conclude June 9. About

Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. David L. Goldfein speaks during the opening ceremony of the Department of Defense Warrior Games at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado, June 2, 2018. First held in Colorado Springs in 2010, the Warrior Games were established as a way to enhance the recovery and rehabilitation of wounded, ill, and injured service members and expose them to adaptive sports. This year, the Games have returned to Colorado Springs, with the Air Force acting as the host service.
300 wounded, ill and injured service members, including 39 Air Force athletes, representing teams from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard and U.S. Special Operations Command, along with allied armed forces from the United Kingdom, Australia and Canada, are competing in shooting, archery, track and field, swimming, sitting volleyball, wheelchair basketball, powerlifting, time-trial cycling and indoor rowing. The Warrior Games was created in 2010 as an introduction to adaptive sports and reconditioning activities for service members and veterans. The U.S. Olympic Committee led and organized the Warrior Games from 2010 - 2014, hosting them each year in Colorado Springs. In 2015, the DoD assumed responsibility for planning and organizing the Warrior Games, having a service branch host the games each year. The Marines hosted in 2015 at Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia, and then handed it off to they Army at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York. The Navy hosted last year in Chicago, near its basic training center. Adaptive sports and reconditioning are linked to a variety of benefits for wounded, ill and injured service members across all branches of the military. Benefits include less stress, reduced dependency on pain and depression medication, fewer secondary medical conditions, higher achievement in education and employment and increased independence, self-confidence and mobility. Admission to Warrior Games competition events is free and open to the public.

Schriever leaders snuff out fires By Airman 1st Class William Tracy 50th Space Wing Public Affairs
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Senior leadership experienced first-hand what Schriever Fire Department firefighters and emergency workers do during a series of fire training exercises at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, June 4. Col. Brian Kehl, commander of the 50th Mission Support Group, and Chief Master Sgt. Daniel Tester, superintendent of the 50th MSG, battled flames and smoke-filled rooms then operated the Jaws of Life while adorned in fire equipment in the summer heat. “I always had respect for these individuals, but seeing how difficult the training is, and all the things they have to think about while they are going through the process to help somebody - it’s amazing,” Kehl said. After an informal tour, Kehl and Tester donned their equipment, complete with their own custom labeled helmets, before the event’s first exercise; using a firehose to put out flames from a car frame. First individually, then together, Kehl and Tester successfully extinguished the flames. “They walked us through what to do; it’s outstanding training,” Kehl said. “The mix of
safety protocol combined with trying to be quick to rescue a person and put out fires is challenging.” Their next exercise was deconstructing a car using hammers, axes, the Jaws of Life and other tools to simulate rescuing a trapped passenger after a car crash. Kehl said indulging in the rare opportunity to snap off bolts, smash glass and tear off whole car doors was not only entertaining, it helped him gain a whole new appreciation of the physical prowess required of SFD personnel. “It’s amazing how much physical energy and stamina it takes to be able to do these tasks,” Kehl said. “The physical exertion, wearing the hot gear, holding the heavy equipment in addition to the heat of the fire shows you have to be in good shape to do this.” “It was quite a workout,” Tester added. “But every guy likes to break stuff, so tearing apart that car was pretty fun.” The final exercise involved rescuing a dummy civilian from a smoke-filled complex. Adding to the challenge was a 160 pound dummy located on the second floor, requiring Kehl and Tester to navigate through the dense smoke to find the stairs, assisted by a SFD firefighter with a flashlight leading the way. Allen Perry, deputy fire chief with the SFD, said he was impressed with Kehl and Tester’s performance during this event, praising their ability to adapt and work as a team.

Becoming an Air Force officer: NECP By Senior Airman Arielle Vasquez 50th Space Wing Public Affairs
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Airmen seeking careers as officers in the Air Force can take advantage of several different commissioning programs and opportunities. The Nurse Enlisted Commissioning Program is a commissioning program providing active duty enlisted members an opportunity to complete a bachelor’s degree in nursing. “Commissioning programs to include NECP are very competitive in nature and applicants must dedicate a significant amount of time and effort to evolve into the individual who stands out from the crowd,” said Scott Hardin, education services specialist with the 21st Force Support Squadron. Airmen selected for NECP will attend nursing school full time in the fall and attend a college or university with an Air Force ROTC detachment or with a cross-town agreement for up to 24 consecutive calendar months, to include summer sessions. Upon completion of the program, members will need to pass the National Council Licensure Examination to earn a nursing license. Following this step, graduates must attend Commissioned Officer Training to be commissioned as nurse corps officers. They will then attend the Nurse Transition Program and move to an assignment location. Before one can pursue a nursing degree and commission in the Air Force, each candidate must go through an application and selection process. One Schriever Air Force Base Airman is familiar with the process and was recently selected for the program. “I knew that I wanted to apply for NECP a year within being in the Air Force,” said Staff Sgt. Cortney Watkins, commander’s support staff with the 50th Comptroller Squadron. “The application process for NECP went smoothly for me because I have been preparing to apply to the program for so many years. “However, the requirements are tough,” she continued. “Members applying must find an eligible school, be accepted into the university of their choice and submit all required documents before the NECP board meets to decide who will be the next nurse corps officers.” A total of 40 Airmen were chosen for the 2018 cycle. Airmen were required to submit applications by March 16 and the NECP board released results May 22. Several components make up a NECP package, to include a letter of recommendation, Enlisted Performance Reports, fitness history, nursing school acceptance letters, transcripts, a video interview and a chief nurse interview. While the NECP application process may be challenging, Hardin shared advice for those who would like to pursue this path. “I recommend anyone interested in NECP start by thoroughly reviewing the information posted on myPers,” Hardin said. “The process is complex and may seem daunting, but the guidance is very comprehensive and includes contact information if members need assistance. I also strongly encourage anyone interested in NECP to seek out an active duty Air Force nurse to ensure they fully understand their profession.” Watkins looks forward to pursue a nursing degree and shared advice for Airmen looking to become officers through NECP. “When I found out that I was accepted into Florida International University’s Veterans Bachelors of Science in nursing program, my eyes welled up with tears of happiness,” she said. “There were so many individuals who helped me along the process and I would not have been able to do this without them. I would tell others persistence and hard work definitely pays off. “My greatest advice for anyone who is interested in this program is to lay out all of your goals and do what you can each day to accomplish each of them,” she continued. “There will be barriers that come along, but there are ways to avoid them and keep pushing toward your goal. If nursing is your passion, do not give up on your dream; keep pushing until you are accepted because the NECP program is a once in a lifetime opportunity.” One board occurs annually for NECP. Applications deadlines for 2019 are to be determined.

express way off a plane? It is absolutely exhilarating, plus, you get to see some very nice views of Colorado from up there. “Of course, whatever the planned activity is, it’s fun,” he continued. “But doing said activity with friends and making new ones, that's just spectacular.” Cannello said he knows the trip planning is worth it because he gets to see the Airmen’s satisfaction after finishing a trip. “It's fun to watch Airmen interact with each other on the way home from a trip or at an event,” he said. “They talk about their adventure, excitement and gratitude. This makes the effort I put into scheduling a trip worthwhile.” Gibson extended his gratitude towards Cannello for organizing the trips and giving Airmen the opportunity to try new things. “I want to thank Seth for putting on these events,” Gibson said. “I know it is a lot of extra work for him to do these events, and I appreciate him.” Cannello stressed the importance for Airmen to take advantage of these free trips because of the experiences. “Getting outside and experiencing nature is very important and I think after a positive experience, Airmen better appreciate being in the Air Force and the opportunities that are provided to them,” he said. Gibson added it’s important for Schriever AFB to have these trips and for Airmen to take advantage of them because everyone needs a break from work. “Get out and have some fun,” he said. “There are a lot of things to see and do.” For more information about the SAI program, or to suggest a new SAI trip, contact the fitness center at 567-6628.
50th Space Wing Public Affairs
SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — With 300 days of sunshine in Colorado Springs, it’s no wonder Airmen look for any excuse they can to get outside. Seth Cannello, fitness center director with the 50th Force Support Squadron, explained the Single Airman Initiative program was designed to offer Airmen opportunities to attend day trips, usually outside, to experience things they may not otherwise do on their own. The program is in its seventh year at Schriever Air Force Base, after Cannello began it in 2012. “We are extremely lucky to live in a state that has so many different and unique outdoor opportunities,” he said. The SAI program offerings are typically free and both enlisted and officer ranks are invited to take-part. “I try to offer activities most Airmen might not be able to afford on their own, or activities that they may not even think about participating in,” Cannello said. “We recently conducted a hot air balloon ride, a tandem skydiving trip and a turkey hunt.” Senior Airman Michael Gibson, readiness and plans journeyman for the 50th FSS, has been on various SAI trips, including skydiving, fishing and paragliding, and praised Cannello’s effort to encourage Airmen to attend. “Seth is really good at asking people he meets in person if they want to go,” he added. While Gibson has been on a variety of SAI program trips, his favorite has been skydiving. “It was the first trip I got to go on,” he said. “What can be more fun than taking the

Extinguishing flames promptly is essential in this exercise’s real-world scenario, in order to rescue passengers and prevent ignition of the vehicle’s gas tank.
From page 7 “They performed outstanding,” he said. “The entire process of completing all three events takes a lot of stamina.” Tester admits he wasn’t fully prepared for the challenge, however, he learned a lot from the experience. “I didn’t know what to expect when I came out here, but I was pleasantly surprised,” he said. “It takes a lot of hard work, and these exercises are just a small glimpse of the hard work they do every day.” Kehl said if the opportunity arises, he would gladly participate in the exercises again; saying they allowed him to see the obstacles his son, who’s planning to go into the emergency services career field, will experience. “It’s really helpful to understand what they’re going through and what he’ll face,” he said. SFD personnel saw benefits as well. “We always like having senior leadership out here,” said Tracey Snyder, assistant chief of training with the SFD. “It’s good for morale, the firefighters like helping them out and the experience leaders get is invaluable.”

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. — Airmen and their families came together to celebrate the first anniversary of the Schriever Event Center at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, June 1. The event center opened June 1, 2017, and has served as a place for leaders to host events and engage with Airmen in recreational activities. Previously the center homed the 50th Security Forces Squadron headquarters. Base leadership decided to optimize the space to give Airmen a place to celebrate events and renovations began in 2016. “I attended the event to commemorate the anniversary of the base's event center,” said 2nd Lt. Michael Kilbourn, deputy flight commander, base infrastructure flight with the 50th Contracting Squadron. “My flight had a lot to do with the renovation of the space, which gave way to what we now know and love as the event center.” The anniversary event featured new campers and other items for loan and rent from the Outdoor Recreation Office for the summer. Army and Air Force Exchange Service food vendors and other services provided support for the event as well. “I thought it was great, there was good food and ice cream provided,” said Senior Airman Seth Leslie, instructor with the 50th Operations Support Squadron. “Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. It’s nice to get out on such a nice day and hang out with my coworkers in a relaxed environment.” Thea Wasche, deputy commander with the 50th FSS, was most proud of the event’s entertainment. “We had a live band perform called STYLE,” she said. “There were also giveaways and booths sponsored by the Airman and Family Readiness Center. There was also a kid’s corner for children to plant summer flowers and take them home.” The anniversary of the building also marked an era of new opportunities for the venue. 50th FSS will host many new events including a new monthly event for the Schriever AFB community called First Friday starting July 13. “First Friday will provide a venue for installation personnel to gather for camaraderie while having something to eat or drink,” Wasche said. “The USO has agreed to provide snacks and food items for these gatherings for the first three months.” The 50th FSS will continually evaluate the program and attendance to help improve First Friday and the event center. “Schriever does not have a club system, like most bases do,” Wasche said. “Until the renovation of this facility, there was no real place to gather installation personnel for social gatherings.” Wasche believes the event center will continue to benefit Schriever AFB Airmen in the future. Currently, there are three First Fridays planned. The first one was delayed one week due to the 4th of July holiday. The subsequent events are scheduled for August 3 and September 7. To reserve the building for an event or for more information, call the 50th FSS sustainment office at 567-5808.

Warrior Games profile: Ultimate Champion By Staff Sgt. Alexx Pons Air Force Wounded Warrior Program
U.S. AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. — The duo could not be more different: Maj. Stacie Shafran, a public affairs officer; retired Senior Airman Rafael Morfinenciso, a health services management troop. And yet, the two are now on the same road at this year’s Warrior Games - with sights set on claiming the title of Ultimate Champion; a feat which would mark the sixth consecutive year Team Air Force has claimed the title. To earn the title, athletes participating in these adaptive sport games must compete in their respective disability classifications across eight events: archery, cycling, powerlifting, rowing, shot put, shooting, swimming and track. Each branch is allotted two slots, one male and one female, with branches also earning points based upon designated competitors’ results in their events. The athlete who garners the most points across all eight events is awarded the title of Ultimate Champion. How does it feel to be identified as the male and female athletes representing the Air Force to compete for this title? Shafran: It feels awesome; both humbling and exciting. This is a testament to how much I have grown with my training and comes as a total surprise – it was unexpected. Morfinenciso: I am also very humbled to be given the chance to represent Team Air Force.I just want to get out there and give it my all. Do either of you feel added pressure being that this would be the sixth year in a row that the Air Force could take this title? Especially being here at the academy and having the Air Force hosting this year’s competition? Shafran: I do not feel any extra pressure; we are competing against some amazing athletes and I am just happy to have the opportunity to do the best I can. Morfinenciso: Like Stacie said, I am not feeling any added pressure; that will only psych you out. We are here to grow and get better… in the end, we are all family. What have you been doing to prepare mentally and physically for this year’s games, knowing that you would be going for this title? Shafran: When coach (Kallie) reached out asked if I was interested and willing to train for all events, we both modified our schedules to meet the physical requirements for competition. I focused on cardio and strength training and worked with coaches across different sports to perfect my performance. It has taken a lot of time and dedication before work, during lunch breaks and over weekends; Rafael and I are both taking this seriously. Morfinenciso: For me, I focused on those sports I was unfamiliar with. I familiarized myself with the rules, talked to coaches to arm myself with knowledge on how to perform well and dedicated time to build strength so I could be my most competitive. Has the team been providing you both with any sort of added support or encouragement since the announcement that you would be the designated athletes going for the title? Shafran: Everyone is always encouraging with anything we do, so there is zero negativity. Something special we have had has been weekly teleconferences between myself, Rafael and the coaches to talk strategies, and it has been nice to have the Air Force Wounded Warrior

U.S. Air Force Maj. Stacie Shafran and retired Senior Airman Rafael Morfinenciso stand side by side ready to compete for the title of Ultimate Champion at this year’s Warrior Games at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo., May 31, 2018. The two are part of the 39-athlete team who will represent Team Air Force during this year’s competition, which officially kicked off June 1.
Program staff be so engaged and keep us mentally focused and strong. Rafael and I are fortunate to have a strong friendship; we have been each other’s good luck charm while we competed last year together. So I am happy to be in this together with him. Morfinenciso: I feel the coaches and staff are dialed in enough to not exhaust us and keep us primed for competition; I appreciate Stacie’s friendship and support and have benefited from being on the same training schedule, so we really feel like this has been a joint venture. What will it mean to either of you, when that moment comes, and you can take home the title for the Air Force on our “home turf?” Shafran: The focus for us is that we are here part of this team; every day is a success and another milestone for each of us. Whatever happens, we are okay with it because regardless we are already successful. Morfinenciso: It would be nice to claim it on “our turf;” we are both competitive and driven, and winning would be awesome, but at end of day just being chosen to compete for the title means we have come a long way in our journey toward recovery and I am just thrilled to doing this with one of my best friends.

Motorcycle ride From page 1 their officer, partner in life, father, mother, son, daughter, etc.” Deeds also uses the ride to reflect on the high price sometimes paid while enforcing the law. “It allows me a time to reflect on those who are willing to walk the thin blue line to protect each of us,” Deeds said. “When they walk out the door each day, it could be the last time they may see their loved ones. Not only am I thinking of those who’ve fallen, I am also reflecting on the loved ones who were left behind trying to pick up the shattered pieces of their life.”

A thin blue line can be seen on a customized United States flag on a follow-on vehicle participating in the 5th Annual Front Range Fallen Officer Memorial Motorcycle Ride that passed through Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, June 1, 2018. The line represents the figurative position of law enforcement officers as the bulwark between order and anarchy in society. The ride memorialized the men and women who pay the ultimate price holding the line.
A thin blue line in law enforcement refers to the figurative position of officers as the bulwark between order and anarchy. The blue line is often seen over a black background at memorial events. James said those who walk the blue line have a special place in his heart. “I remember my fellow security forces members, thinking of the good and bad times we shared,” he said. “I think of those fallen law enforcement brothers and the pain losing a love one; and those who wish they could ride again but the body isn't able.” While everyone may not be able to participate in a motorcycle ride, Deeds said there are other ways to show appreciation for the men and women who put their lives on the line for society every day. “When you get a chance, take the time to thank them for sacrifice and duty in a time where it is tough being a police officer,” Deeds advised. “To end, I would quote, ‘No greater love has a man, to lay his life down for another,’ for that is what they do every day for total strangers.”
Riders participate in the 5th Annual Front Range Fallen Officer Memorial Motorcycle Ride that passed through Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, June 1, 2018. One-hundred people participated in the record-setting ride, which was designed to memorialize the men and women of law enforcement who pay the ultimate price in serving and protecting society.
