Entering the Elite One Percent

This post was originally published by 15th Wing - 15th Wing Top Stories

When my supervisor, a Chief Master Sergeant asked me if I would be the photographer for the Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam Chief Master Sergeant Recognition Ceremony, I happily accepted. I am by no means a professional photographer, but I love military ceremonies. I love celebrating the accomplishments of military personnel. I love reminders that we are part of the profession of arms and not part of a business. I had never been to a Chief's Recognition Ceremony before and this was my opportunity to attend one. I must admit that as the event drew nearer, I began to feel like a fish out of water. I just bore in mind that the ceremony was not about me. It was about sixteen Airmen reaching a tremendous milestone: the top one percent of the Air Force. It was my job to do my part to make their night the best night possible.

Frontline supervisors at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam were educated on suicide prevention in a training course held at the base theater here Feb. 13.

Hosted by the 15th Medical Operations Squadron Mental Health Flight, the three-hour course was based on the motto, "Good Leadership is Good Prevention."

The Frontline Supervisor Course was initially developed by the Air Force to prepare supervisors to identify and intervene with Airmen at risk for suicide.

"This is an important program to aid in suicide prevention and teaches supervisors better ways to interact and relate to their Airman," said Tech. Sgt. Dawn MacKenzie, Mental Health Resiliency and Outreach NCO in charge.

The 15th Medical Group launched MiCare, the online secure messaging service, in September 2013, and though the program is currently thriving, they continue to encourage patients to sign-up and take advantage of the new system which is giving patients more control over their medical care.

"MiCare gives patients a secure means to access their healthcare team via the internet," said Capt. Scott Cook, 15th MDG MiCare lead. "It can save the beneficiary time by not having them come into the clinic for something simple like requesting prescription refills or test results. It also allows them to ask their healthcare team medical questions through a secure electronic message without an appointment. "

JBPH-H passenger terminal is changing the way you fly Space-A

This post was originally published by 15th Wing - 15th Wing Top Stories

The 735th Air Mobility Command Passenger Terminal is currently testing a virtual Space-Available roll call initiative, which will electronically notify passengers of their selection for a flight without having to be physically present at the terminal.

Traditionally, in order for Space-A passengers to manifest onto a flight, they would need to take leave, go to the terminal and sign up for the flight, then return for roll call to find out if they were selected. Now the new customer service-geared process eliminates the need for the extra trip back to the terminal.

C-17 pilots train hard, often to stay prepared in the sky

For C-17 Globemaster III pilots, training doesn't only occur in the sky. In fact, much of their training is done on the ground to ensure that when they fly, they're prepared to deal with any issue that may come their way.

Hickam C-17 pilots maintain their preparedness by conducting recurring training throughout the year. This includes computer based training, monthly exams on basic flight knowledge, self-paced instrument simulator sorties for newer pilots, and quarterly phase training in a C-17 simulator, a 30-foot machine that gives pilots a realistic feeling of flight.

As the old English proverb quotes: "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst."

For some, this is but a simple quote. For the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Emergency Operations Center, otherwise known as the EOC, this is their culture.
