Texting, talking on phone while driving means no more ‘LOL’ing any time soon

This post was originally published by RAF Mildenhall - RAF Mildenhall Latest News

In today's world, with technology easily accessible, it seems one can't go anywhere without being, or seeing others, on a cell phone or electronic device of some kind.

One common use for this seems to be to relieve the boredom of the journey when driving home, to work, or heading out for the evening. With a cell phone close at hand, it's an easy temptation to text a spouse, check social media page updates or call a friend.

Passing it off as multi-tasking, every now and then a driver might glance up, vaguely checking the road, before continuing to type that oh-so-important text, or make that, "Hey, so what are we doing this weekend?" call. Then, glancing up once more, there's the sudden realization the car is actually on the wrong side of the road and there's another vehicle heading straight for the now-attentive driver, flashing its lights and sounding its horn.

Zero mistakes. That's the standard the precision measurement equipment laboratory technicians are held to on a daily basis. One mistake in their shop could mean the difference between a guided weapons system firing on target or missing by several feet in the heat of battle.

The 31st Maintenance Squadron PMEL shop has a heavy weight of dependence resting on their shoulders and accuracies are corrected to the thousandth of an inch. Their job is to calibrate and repair measurement and diagnostic equipment to provide customers with reliable, safe and accurate equipment that meets and exceeds expectations.

COMMENTARY: Next man up

This post was originally published by RAF Mildenhall - RAF Mildenhall Latest News

February 10, 2015 in Royal Air Force Base Mildenhall, United Kingdom by clevine

Are you ready?

As I watched the college football and NFL playoff games, I kept hearing the phrase "next man up." The commentators were referring to the team philosophy that when a player is injured or taken out of the game the backup is going to step up and take his place. This backup was going to get the opportunity to prove their worth to the team.

My questions to you: Are you ready to be the next man up?  Have you done everything to prepare yourself for that opportunity?
