Government Travel Card: Financial Readiness

This post was originally published by Incirlik Air Base - News

September 26, 2014 in Incirlik Air Base, Turkey by clevine

The government travel card can be useful with official government travel and expenses, but if Airmen are not careful, this card can affect more than just being overdue on a payment.

The 39th Comptroller Squadron works with and educates members on how to use a GTC properly. Knowing the ins and outs of the GTC is key in helping members be responsible cardholders and ultimately ensure readiness.

The GTC is not just another credit card for personal expenses, it's for official government use only. Therefore, the card must be active or it will not be useable or beneficial.

During an early reveille ceremony Monday morning, members of the Aviano Green Knights met the 31st Fighter Wing commander with the POW/MIA flag, which was then raised by the base honor guard team, marking the start of a weeklong remembrance ceremony Sept. 22 through 25.

The ceremony week was hosted by the local Air Force Sergeants Association honoring those who were prisoners of war and those missing in action.

The third Friday of every September has been congressionally recognized as National POW/MIA Recognition Day throughout the United States. This gives service members and civilian members a chance to reflect on those who paid the ultimate sacrifice or who became captive and their families who suffered or continue to suffer.

"It's always stressful to start a new job," said Monika Skor, 100th Logistics Readiness Squadron commander's secretary from Kysucke Nove Mesto, Slovakia.

For Skor, this is her first job working on a military installation, and English is not her native tongue.

"This is my second language, and the military vocabulary seems to be unlike any other," she laughed. "They use many acronyms. Plus, American-English is a bit different to British-English, especially the accent. The language is for me the most challenging aspect of the job."

The 2014 CFC-O Is A Time of Thinking of Those in Need

This post was originally published by Incirlik Air Base - News

It's easy to think, "That'll never happen to me."  "Those kinds of things only happen to other people."  "I'm ready for anything."  However, life doesn't work that way and often things happen when you would least expect it.  One day, you're giving to the needy; the next day, you ARE the needy.  That is why we have the Combined Federal Campaign-Overseas (CFC-O).  The CFC-O is the annual workplace giving campaign for the five overseas unified combatant commands and an extension of the worldwide CFC program.  Chances are you may know someone that has been touched by the CFC and you may not even know it.  In fact, I recently met someone for which the CFC really hits close to home.  Here is her story.

‘Fly-tipping’ is everyone’s responsibility

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

Individuals in the process of moving or going through a Permanent Change of Station are most vulnerable to committing a fly-tipping offense without even realizing it. These offenses can lead to serious consequences, such as fines and possibly jail time.

Fly-tipping refers to illegally dumping unwanted items, such as refrigerators, boxes, couches or other waste in areas where they shouldn't be left. It's a serious environmental issue and criminal activity that costs Suffolk councils around £300,000 per year.
