Army cargo specialists are trained to prepare, rig and load equipment for transport by rail, ground, sea and air.

“If these troops can handle this Chinook, they can handle anything. They have been training for this exercise for a month and their preparation showed today.

On a grassy field no larger than a baseball diamond, a group of Soldiers waits on an Army Humvee rigged to move. What feels like a rustling of the breeze quickly becomes billowing winds as a Chinook helicopter rapidly descends to their location. In less than 30-seconds, the Soldiers are off the vehicle, and it is lifted into the air. More than 50 cargo specialists assigned to the 53rd Movement Control Battalion, 7th Sustainment Brigade recently trained on sling load operations on Felker Army Airfield a Fort Eustis, Va. Army cargo specialists are trained to prepare, rig and load equipment for transport by rail, ground, sea and air. They can be found in most military transportation centers around the world. While some Soldiers are unfamiliar with sling load operations and procedures, the skill has a very real application to the current fight in Afghanistan. “Even though this is a level-one skill for most cargo specialists, it’s not a skill they will use unless they are in a deployed environment,” said Sgt. 1st Class William Wilkins, a platoon sergeant assigned to the 567th Inland Cargo Transfer Company, 53rd MC Bn., 7th Sus. Bde. “Its application in Afghanistan is to quickly and safely move equipment, ranging from vehicles to food and ammunition, to remote areas that cannot be accessed by other transportation assets.”

The day’s training began with lessons in basic sling load theory. Soldiers studied the capabilities of Army rotary aircraft, how to prepare for cargo movement, load theory and methods of rigging unconventional loads. Their instruction was accompanied by hands-on rigging and inspection training on a Humvee. As they became proficient in preparing their vehicle for sling load, the time came to put their skills to practice. Teams of four Soldiers took turns waiting on top of the Humvee, hooking it to a Chinook, dismounting the vehicle and moving to safety. As the Soldiers moved away, many were unprepared for the powerful rotor-wash delivered by the helicopter, said Wilkins. “If these troops can handle this Chi-

nook, they can handle anything,” Wilkins said. “They have been training for this exercise for a month and their preparation showed today. Everyone displayed a high level of motivation, and got the training done.” The day was not yet over for these Soldiers, even if the training was. One Soldier decided this was the perfect time to show their continued dedication to the Army, while flying in a Chinook helicopter. Spc. Tequana Marcelle, an automated supply specialist assigned to the 567th ICTC, re-enlisted while hovering over the airfield. “I really enjoy my job and I want to continue with my career,” said Marcelle. “The Army is a great organization that I think everyone should experience at least once.”

It’s that time of year again. Ghosts, goblins, superheroes and villains travel the streets, going from house to house in search of the best candy. Halloween can be a fun holiday for children, but a worrisome one for parents. To help alleviate those fears, the 633rd and 733rd Security Forces Squadrons recommends the following safety guidelines for anyone participating in the upcoming Halloween celebration: • S – Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft, and exible. • A – Avoid trick-or-treating alone. Walk in groups or with a trusted adult. • F – Fasten reective tape to costumes and bags to help drivers see you. • E – Examine all treats for choking hazards and tampering before eating them. • H – Hold a ashlight while trick-or-treating to help you see, and others will see you. • A – Always test make-up in a small area ďŹ rst. Remove it before bedtime to prevent possible irritation. • L – Look both ways before crossing the street. Use established crosswalks wherever possible. • L – Lower your risk for serious eye injury by not wearing decorative contact lenses. • O – Only walk on sidewalks whenever possible, or on the far edge of the road facing trafďŹ c to stay safe. • W – Wear well-ďŹ tting masks, costumes and shoes to avoid blocked vision, trips and falls. • E – Eat only factory-wrapped treats. Avoid eating homemade treats from strangers. • E – Enter homes only if you’re with a trusted adult. • N – Never walk near lit candles or luminaries. Be sure to wear ame-resistant costumes. Trick-or-treating will be for children ages 12 and under Oct. 31 during the following designated times: â–  Norfolk, Suffolk, Newport News and Poquoson: until 8 p.m.

Aquatic Center offering swim classes for children, adults through school year 633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS

Photo by Staff Sgt. Wesley Farnsworth

Alexis Cain, Fort Eustis Aquatic Center lifeguard, helps 3-year-oldTruly Oliver swim toward a rubber duck during an “Aqua Tots” swimming class at Fort Eustis, Oct. 10. Swimming classes and private lessons are available to military and civilian members of all ages at the Aquatic Center through the 2012-13 school year.

While the summer may be over, there is still plenty of fun to be had in the pool at Fort Eustis. The Aquatics Center is offering swim classes for children and adults through the 2012-2013 school year. The center hosts a variety of classes for different age groups and skill levels, giving everyone a chance to get their feet wet. Most sessions run two days a week for four weeks, totaling eight classes per session, while a few classes are offered on Saturday mornings. Class options include parent and child classes, “Aqua Tots,” designed for kids ages 3 and 4, levels 1-6 for children, and adult classes. Christina White, the aquatics manager, said the swim lesson program has grown steadily due to good reviews and an influx of customer demand from the community. During the center’s summer program, 162 swimmers of all ages completed nearly 30 different classes.

“The program has been very popular, with a lot of repeat customers,” White said, adding that word-of-mouth advertising has been positive as well.. “It’s been so much fun getting these programs up and running to meet the demand. It’s great for the community to take advantage of the great instructors and the facility we have here.” Lifeguards Erin Greenaway and Alexis Cain regularly instruct younger children during swim classes, including the “Aqua Tots” course. The pair said working with youngsters is the best part of their job. “We teach them how to really swim, using their legs and arms, but we keep it fun for them,” Greenaway said. “We also put a lot of emphasis on safety. In our classes, we teach them how to find a lifeguard and what to do in case someone is having trouble or in distress.” “We want to keep parents at ease, and let them know their children are safe and in good hands,” Cain added. “The parents love the program, and like the way we teach.”

White said while swim lessons for children are their most popular offering; many adults have taken advantage of the Saturday classes. “A lot of older people that don’t know how to swim might be embarrassed at first, but when they come in find it very easy to learn with us,” she said. “So if someone says, ‘I’ve had this fear my entire life, this is only obstacle I have to overcome,’ they come here and get that positive encouragement, practice and reinforcement, and they’re able to change their lives.” “Aqua Tots” and levels 1-6 classes cost $55. Families of deployed Service members with documentation are eligible for a $45 rate. Adult and parent/child classes cost $30. Private lessons are available for $40 per lesson, or $75 for two people. Group lessons will not be conducted in December, January or May. For more information about swim lessons or to register, call the Aquatic Center at 878-1090, or visit at 641 Tyler Ave. on Fort Eustis.

The Fort Eustis Installation Solid Waste Management Center introduced new hours of operation and solid-waste collection guidelines recently to streamline waste collection across the post. Under the new collection process, which began Sept. 1, contract employees will collect solid waste, garbage and recyclable materials from buildings on post, excluding family housing, child development centers, and Army and Air Force Exchange Service facilities. Food waste containers are emptied daily, and garbage collections occur once or twice each week when containers reach 80 percent capacity. Recyclables are collected each Tuesday morning. Since collection occurs as early a 4 a.m., cutomers are asked to place their recyclables curbside on Monday afternoons. Additionally, customers no longer have to pre-arrange the delivery of tires, as tires are not included in the new contract and will be accepted by the contractor anytime during operating hours.

According to Jacqueline Howard, the 733rd Civil Engineer Division contracting officer representative, the most significant change in the program is the new hours at the ISWMC. The center will no longer be open every weekday, instead opening Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Howard said the changes enable Fort Eustis to conserve more than $426,000 in resources, diverting them to other areas where they can be better utilized. “Revenue sharing was also removed from the contract, which means Fort Eustis no longer shares the profits from the sale of recyclables with the contractors, resulting in a total return of approximately $400,000 or more to the post,” she explained. The total cost savings over the life of the contract will exceed $826,000. For quality issues and to request float containers for projects and special events, customers can contact Jacqueline Howard at 878-1387, or via email at jacqueline.m.howard.civ@mail. mil. For general information, customers can contact ISWMC technicians at 878-4232.

The inset diagrams detail traffic tapers, buffers and work zones on- and adjacent-to the bridge.

Beginning later this year, the City of Newport News will begin a major construction project on Fort Eustis Boulevard, which will impact traffic entering and exiting Fort Eustis for approximately one year. The project involves the replacement of two bridges that cross the CSX Transportation rail lines directly southwest of the Interstate 64 off-ramps onto Fort Eustis Boulevard. The northbound lane bridge, which carries traffic from Jefferson Avenue to Fort Eustis, will be demolished and replaced first. The first phase of construction is scheduled to last until May 2013. Upon completion of the northbound bridge, the city will begin replacement of the southbound bridge, which is slated for completion in mid-November 2013. During construction, traffic will merge into one lane to cross the open bridge in a two-way traffic pattern. City crews will provide appropriate signage, flaggers and other communicative marking to manage the flow of traffic along the impacted stretch of roadway.

As phase one is underway, the rerouting taper for traffic traveling westbound on Fort Eustis Boulevard will begin just east of Jefferson Avenue. The taper for eastbound traffic leaving Fort Eustis will begin at the eastern end of the reservoir bridge. When phase two begins, all traffic will cross the newly-constructed northbound span. The traffic taper for westbound traffic will begin just west of I-64. The eastbound traffic taper will begin at the western end of the reservoir bridge. Fort Eustis experiences peak traffic flow weekdays between 7:30 and 8:30 a.m., marshaling in an average of 16,000 vehicles during the morning rush hour, according to the 733rd Security Forces Squadron’s Mike Hagans. The post admits about 24,000 vehicles each weekday. To help mitigate traffic flow issues, Fort Eustis senior leadership is considering a series of measures to decrease peak hour traffic volume. These initiatives include, but are not limited to, “telework,” the practice of working from home or another off-site location; flextime scheduling, in which workers can customize their schedules by coming in early,

working later, or vice-versa, and staggered reporting times. Soldiers and civilian employees should refer to their unit leadership for appropriate scheduling. The installation has made several improvements in the past six months to improve traffic flowing on and off post. For example, morning “Reveille” was moved to 5:30 a.m., eliminating traffic stoppage during the music. An improved force protection barrier plan, which dictates how security forces control access to the post, is in development. Commercial deliveries are prohibited on the installation prior to 8 a.m., streamlining gate access for commuters. Additionally, day contractors can only enter the post via Dozier Road, which alleviates some of the vehicle load at the main gates. During peak hours, additional gate security will help process inbound traffic control at the gates to speed up entry on to post. Traditional concrete “Jersey barriers” will be removed in favor of passive bollards, giving security personnel the flexibility to quickly adapt entry lanes to ensure maximum efficiency and driver safety. Leadership from the 733rd Mission Sup-

port Group coordinated with Newport News city managers to synchronize and increase turn signal times, which will allow more vehicles to enter Gate 2. Also, the city built an additional turning lane to streamline outbound traffic at Gate 2. Keith Morrow, the 733rd MSG deputy commander, said that while the construction project will definitely impact traffic in and out of the installation, the best way to avoid delays is to plan ahead. Plotting new routes to and from the post, carpooling, and allotting extra time for travel are among his recommendations to alleviate logjam at the gates. “We’re doing everything we can to mitigate a negative traffic impact on the installation, but people living and working on Fort Eustis can help by doing a little back planning,” he said. “For the first few days, we expect people to allow a little extra time for their commute to see what the situation will be like. Eventually, we’ll fall into a routine where we know what to expect, and how to get where we’re going on time.” Additional information will be released as it becomes available.

1st Lt. Travis Schaffer, 633rd Medical Operations Squadron emergency room registered nurse, is featured because of his willingness to go above and beyond to help those in need. He said it was an easy decision to use his nursing training to serve his country.

It was a calm, sunny afternoon at the Mohican State Park in Loudonville, Ohio, as 1st Lt. Travis Schaffer ran along the twisted trails, enjoying some time on leave. He slowed down to a walk so his mother and sister could catch up to him. As they walked down the trail, they saw an elderly man walking with two young girls. Schaffer casually said hello and had planned to continue on his way, but the man pleaded for help. The man informed Schaffer that his grandson had fallen while hiking, and had hurt his ankle. Schaffer, a 633rd Medical Operations Squadron emergency room registered nurse at U.S. Air Force Hospital Langley immediately let his training take over. “My ďŹ rst instinct was to ďŹ nd him,â€? he said, referring to the man’s injured grandson. “That is the reason I became a nurse – to help those in need.â€? Once Schaffer got directions from the man, he ran to see if he could use his years of training to assist the family. Once he made it to where they were, he assessed the young man’s injury. Schaffer checked the severity of the injury, and administered the correct dosage of Ibuprofen to reduce the swelling and ease the young man’s pain. Then he dragged a large tree trunk to elevate the injured ankle. Luckily for the injured man, the ankle was not broken; it was only a minor sprain. Schaffer waited with the family until help arrived on the scene to help the injured man out of the park. While waiting, he shared his expertise and knowledge to soothe the family’s anxiety. “It felt good to calm them down,â€? he said. “In the woods, even a minor injury can be intimidating.â€?

Schaffer said the need to help others not only pushed him to pursue a career in nursing, but to join the Air Force once he finished his schooling. “I joined the Air Force to make a difference,” he said. “It was an easy decision to use my training to serve my country, and help those who need it.” While the injury was not a dire situation, Schaffer used his training gained through his studies and the Air Force to assist the injured man, and put the family at ease – a situation any Airmen could find themselves in - at any moment. “It could happen to any Airman,” said Kevin Berry, a 633rd Air Base Wing Self-Aid Buddy Care advisor. “That is what makes SABC training so important.” Berry, who retired after nearly 26 years as an active-duty aerospace medical service technician, has also used his own medical training in unexpected situations. Once while off-duty in Minnesota, Berry was one of the first on the scene of a car accident. Using his Air Force training, Berry ran to the damaged car, and held the drivers neck in place to avoid any inadvertent movement that could worsen any potential injury to the driver’s neck. Then he waited for emergency responders to arrive. This is another instance that proves that a Service members’ training can be called upon at any moment. “It’s important for all Airmen to be able to take care of their wingmen while deployed, at work or even on vacation.” said Berry. “It may not be life or death, but you never can know.” Active-duty Airmen interested in signing up for a SABC class or CPR class can call the Education and Training office to schedule a time to attend the course. While SABC qualification is a deployment requirement, it is paramount for all Service members to be able to use these skills at any time. “It’s great to be able to help someone when you’re not required to,” said Schaffer. “It’s the right thing to do.”

“Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in the attempt.” This is the oath of the World Special Olympics, in which more than 4 million athletes compete in 170 countries every year to win the gold. This year, Langley Air Force Base hosted the 12th annual Virginia area 22 Special Olympics for the Tidewater region Oct. 13. More than 400 athletes competed in volleyball, bowling and soccer. An opening ceremony was held before the games began to welcome everyone and showcase the lighting of the torch. U.S. Army Col. Jayne V. Jansen, 633rd

“Let me win, but if I cannot win, let me be brave in thee attempt.” — oath of the World Speciial Olympics

Air Base Wing vice commander, attended the opening ceremony, and welcomed all participants to the event. “We are proud to have been your host for more than 20 years,” said Jansen. “Your combined effort makes the Olympics possible.” During the games, approximately 70 Joint Base Langley-Eustis personnel volunteered as referees and score-keepers, and

presented awards to the lo ocal athletes as they reached their goals. “The military have always been a big part of the program,” said Heleene Flick, Special Olympics Virginia, Area a 22 coordinator. “They help in any way th hey can. All we have to do is ask and they reespond with respect, and give all they can to the athletes and anyone else who needs their t help.” According to Doug Faber, r, Langley AFB

Special Olympics event coordinator, the local event is required for the athletes to qualify for the state games. Once they succeed, they will move on to the national, then the international levels. “Special Olympics means a lot,” said Flick. “First of all it gives the athletes a chance to compete just like anyone else. It also gives them a chance to meet other athletes around the country and the world. In all, the Special Olympics program is one for learning and competing in competitions and having respect for others.” This event was the second of five local sporting events geared toward competing at the state level, which will ultimately lead to the Special Olympics World Summer Games in 2015.

With one look at the myriad of ingredients strewn across the counter tops in the Fort Eustis Club’s kitchens, it is easy to tell the top chef here means business. Business is greatly improved, indeed, since executive chef Tim Cooper joined the team in July. He abandoned the pre-cooked, heated-up fare in favor of home-style, “made from scratch” cuisine featured on the Club’s lunch time buffet. Cooper brings with him 20 years of experience garnered through an on-the-job apprenticeship at Williamsburg’s renowned Berret’s Seafood Restaurant, where he worked his way up the food chain to become restaurant chef. Wanting to take the next step in his career, Cooper interviewed for the position of executive chef at the Club, and was a perfect fit for the club. “Tim brings a wealth of experience in fine dining with him, and we’re grateful to have someone with his knowledge and reputation on staff now,” said Joe Dumas, the 733rd Force Support Division community services branch chief who hired Cooper. “His attention to the quality and presentation of the food that he prepares is what sets him apart.” Given the task of reinvigorating the Club’s lunch time offering, he said he had to rebuild from the bottom up. “The biggest transition for me has probably been going from the fine dining atmosphere of “a la carte” cooking to buffet style cooking here,” said Cooper, while tending to a mixer churning dough for the day’s fresh rolls. “I still put forth the same amount of effort in all my cooking, but here I’m producing larger quantities of food.” Of that food, Cooper said “comfort food” has been the biggest draw, garnering praise from the club’s regular diners. “I think that I do comfort food very well because that’s what I’ve always done my whole life,” the West Virginia native said. “I add the flair of hav-

ing experience in doing things in a much richer manner, cooking food that’s better seasoned with a better bottom end, and understanding how it affects the taste buds. With the buffet style setting here, comfort foods have gone over very well.” While his fried chicken and Beef Stroganoff are currently the big hits, Cooper wants to expand the menu, and hopes to offer seafood and steaks eventually. As the man in charge behind the scenes, Cooper said he is working to teach his staff how to prepare food from scratch -– a stark contrast for a kitchen used to purchasing heatand-serve entrees to serve to diners. Eventually, he said he will develop recipe books for the staff to follow; giving him time to expand the club’s other dining opportunities. “I feel like the club right now is about 20 percent of what it could be,” Cooper said. “I would like to eventually prepare a menu for dinner time service that’s a la carte with menus, so people can order what they want, and we can cook as ordered.” Cooper said he also wants to ex-

plore building the club’s banquet business, catering for more weddings and special events. For now, the biggest motivation to keep improving the fare is the feedback from customers. “I go out in the dining room several times during the course of lunch and I’m often stopped and thanked for coming in here. People are really appreciative,” said Cooper. “I think that they’re surprised at how good the food tastes. They didn’t know simple foods could taste that good. “The reason I love to cook is that I love the gratification of seeing happy people when they eat my food,” he added. “Seeing the happy customers here just makes me want to keep doing it.” Editor’s Note: Hungry yet? To experience Chef Cooper’s new and improved lunch buffet offerings, visit the Fort Eustis Club at 2123 Pershing Ave. on Fort Eustis weekdays from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The lunch buffet is $8.50.

Mary Beth Gibson (left) and Rene Bowditch co-founded “Beyond Boobs!” six years ago as a small group of women with breast cancer who came together to share love with one another throughout their treatment and healing process. Now, the group is a non-profit health organization at the MacDonald Army Health Center at Fort Eustis, focusing on moving women beyond passive awareness of breast cancer to the point of taking the necessary steps to reduce risk and ensure early detection.

MCDONALD ARMY HEALTH CENTER WOMEN’S HEALTH CLINIC

October is here once again, and with a flurry of pink ribbons, it marks National Breast CancerAwareness Month. Celebrating its 27th anniversary of providing awareness, education and empowerment, National Breast Cancer Awareness began in 1985. It was initially a week-long event, but has since evolved into a month-long campaign. So, just how did the “pink” begin? The first celebration was a collaborative event created in part by the American Academy of Family Physicians, pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca’s Health Care Foundation and a non-profit organization called Cancer Care, Inc. A few years earlier, in 1982, the color pink took off when the first Susan G. Komen Foundation Race for the Cure had a logo of a female runner outlined with a pink ribbon. Then, in 1992, while working on the second magazine breast cancer awareness issue, Alexandra Penney created a ribbon, and worked with cosmetic companies who distributed them in New York stores. From this point, the pink ribbon became a symbol for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and caught on throughout the country. While many individuals are sure to be surrounded by the color pink throughout the month of October, advocates of breast cancer awareness want everyone to take the intended message to heart. Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer in women. More than 192,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and statistics show that one in eight women will be diagnosed during their lifetime. Most doctors agree, early detection is the key to survival. If all women over 40 took advantage of early detection methods, it is estimated that death rates would drop by up to 30 percent. Annual mammography and clinical exams, plus monthly self-breast exams are

More than 192,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer each year, and statistics show that one in eight women will be diagnosed during their lifetime. the key to early detection. Mammography is still the best screening tool used today, and the best method of detecting changes that may be cancerous long before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. The risk of breast cancer increases with age. Estrogen risks associated with breast cancer include early menstruation, late menopause (after the age of 55), no full-term pregnancy or first child after the age of 30. Another risk factor associated with breast cancer is the presence of the BRCA (breast cancer) 1 or 2 genes, which can be inherited from a family member. Hereditary breast cancer makes up approximately 5 to 10 percent of all breast cancer. Individuals who have a strong family history should speak with their physician about possible testing for this gene. To decrease your chances of getting breast cancer and increase your chances of survival, practice early detection methods, know your family history,

decrease your daily fat intake, increase your dietary fiber, eat fresh fruits and vegetables, limit alcohol, stay active and remain smoke free. Breast cancer awareness does not end in October. The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month Board of Sponsors now consists of 15 national public-service organizations, professional associations and government agencies. It does not confine its work to 31 days, but works relentlessly for millions of women and their families. More information on this organization can be found at www.NBCAM. org. This is a year-round resource for breast cancer patients, survivors, caregivers and the general public. Another source of information is the Komen Foundation, which can be found at www.komen.org. Additional resources include the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute and the Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization. A display with information on early detection and breast cancer will be maintained in an area adjacent to outpatient records in the McDonald Army Health Center throughout the month of October. Become educated, practice all early detection methods, maintain a healthy lifestyle, and encourage other women to do the same: not just in October but every day.

633RD AIR BASE WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS

Americans have grown up hearing ‘The Star-Spangled Banner” at sporting events and special ceremonies. They place their right hand over their heart, and sometimes sing along. From the first day of Basic Military Training, hearing that familiar song brings a whole new meaning to every Service member’s heart. However, sometimes we get complacent and lose sight of the important things the song reminds of us daily. “We all rush around and can get distracted with our day-to-day lives,” said retired Master Sgt. Thomas Cleveland. “Some military members wait inside until the song is over, or they continue to drive while the music is playing because they’re in a rush to get somewhere.” According to Air Force Instruction 1341201 Chapter 2.17, “Individuals in uniform should give the military salute at the first note of the National Anthem, and maintain that position until the last note.” Army regulation 600-25, Appendix C, Table C-1 states that military members in uniform must render a hand salute if outdoors, and stand at attention if indoors. Personnel should hold this position until the last note of music has been played. Air Force instructions and Army regulations state that all civilians, as well as Service members who are present but not in uniform, should remove any headgear, and place their right hand over their heart. Service members in physical training uniforms should do the same. Master Sgt. Danny Avery, 633rd Comptroller Squadron financial services chief, salutes the flag not because he has to, but because he believes it honors all veterans. “I swell up with pride when I hear that music playing,” said Avery. “Saluting the national anthem is my way of giving thanks to the people that I serve beside today, as well as my father’s generation and my grandfather’s generation who served before me.” At both installations, the “giant voice” system plays the national anthem at 5 p.m. every weekday. Individuals driving on base should stop their vehicle until after the song has ended. If sponsored civilians or contractors are unaware, it is the responsibility of Airmen and Soldiers to inform them of the customs and courtesies

rendered at this time. “Not everyone that comes on base knows or understands the respect we give to the national anthem,” said Senior Airman Jordan Rushing, 633rd Civil Engineer Squadron installation geospatial information and services technician. “I saw a civilian contractor walking down the street when the national anthem played not too long ago. A sergeant stopped his car and told the civilian what he was supposed to do. The civilian didn’t get upset; he actually thanked him, and then stood next to him with his hand over his heart while the sergeant saluted.” Day-in and day-out, we come to work, we do our jobs, we go home, and then we come back the next day and do it all over again. Sometimes it can be a little monotonous, sometimes it can get a little crazy and it is easy to get distracted. No matter how busy or distracted we get, we should always take the time to remember and honor the national anthem and what it stands for.

Air Force officials are releasing the enlisted quarterly assignment listing, or EQUAL, on Oct. 22 for the July to September 2013 overseas assignment cycle. Enlisted Airmen must update their assignment preferences by Nov. 1 and they will be notified of their assignment selections by Nov. 16. “We are accelerating the release of the EQUAL list to allow us time to complete the overseas assignment cycle before the Military Personnel Data System upgrade in December,” said Michael Kiel, Air Force Personnel Center integrated assignment, applications and training chief. “If Airmen do not update their assignment preferences by Nov. 1, they will not be considered as volunteers for the overseas assignments advertised on EQUAL.” EQUAL posts upcoming assignments by Air Force Specialty Code and rank. Airmen are instructed to review, prioritize and list their assignment preferences based on the EQUAL list. Airmen can update their assignment preferences on the virtual Military Personnel Flight application and view the EQUAL list on the myPers website at http://mypers.af.mil. Active duty Airmen on temporary duty during the EQUAL advertising period can contact their nearest personnel support office for assistance.

The Air Force is upgrading and transferring MilPDS to the Defense Information Systems Agency’s Defense Enterprise Computing Center and the upgrade project is scheduled to take about 23 days to complete. During this period, MilPDS will not be available. MilPDS is the primary records database for personnel data and actions that occur throughout every total force Airman’s career. MilPDS is also used to initiate Airman pay actions, maintain Air Force accountability and strength data and support a host of interactions with other Air Force processes and systems that rely on personnel data. Reserve and Guard members will receive specific instructions from the Air Force Reserve Command and Air Reserve Personnel Center concerning how the MilPDS upgrade will impact their personnel programs. More information is available on the ARPC public website at http://www.arpc.afrc.af.mil. Officials will continue to release additional information and guidance to the Air Force’s manpower, personnel, services and pay communities and total force Airmen to continue to educate them on how the service will perform critical personnel and pay tasks during the MilPDS upgrade. For more information about the EQUAL list or MilPDS upgrade, visit the myPers website at http://mypers.af.mil.
