Lars Hubert, 52nd Fighter Wing acting wing commander. "I encourage you to get out there and continue to do that each and every day and motivate the people in our wing to make things better."

What would you do? The DoD received 5,061 reports of alleged sexual assult in 2013 with more than 54 percent involving service member-on-service member crime. Every Airmen is responsible for stepping in when something is not right, even in seemingly awkward situations. We all have a role in combating sexual assault. It is essential that every service member, from all levels of the military, knows that dignity and respect are core values we follow.

The Veterans Benefits Affairs Department of Defense program office staff offers a variety of informational services to veterans, dependents and their survivors.

The program aims to assist transitioning Airmen and their families as part of President Barack Obama's Veterans Opportunity to Work Act, which makes service member participation in the Transition Assistance Program mandatory.

"We'll keep slashing that backlog so our veterans receive the benefits they've earned, and our wounded warriors receive the health care - including the mental health care - that they need," said Obama during the 2014 State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress Jan. 28. "We'll keep working to help all our veterans translate their skills and leadership into jobs here at home. We all continue to join forces to honor and support our remarkable military families."
