This year's 72nd anniversary remembrance ceremony for the December 7, 1941, attacks on Pearl Harbor and Hickam Field will be attended by four December 7 survivors and a host of family members of those killed in action or deceased, including Tech. Sgt. Andrew Shepherd, an active-duty member assigned to the 15th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron here whose grandfather survived the attack on Hickam Field.

"It's a real privilege to know I'll be meeting survivors that served here with my grandfather, and show them that even after all these years, we're still eager to remember the sacrifices they made," said Shepherd.

First, I want to say what an incredible privilege it is for JoAnn and me to continue our service here where our homeland joins the Pacific, among many friends and in a place so important to our nation's future. While the current fiscal environment makes traveling to the unique locales you call home difficult, the jobs each of you do every day are extremely important. I would be remiss if I failed to reach out and take minute to explain the intent and priorities for my command so you are set up for success in accomplishing your mission.

Remember the Value of Your Service

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

November 8, 2013 in Hawaii, Hickam Air Force Base by clevine

To the men and women of Pacific Air Forces and to our veterans from all services, please accept my very sincere "thank you." You have answered our Nation's call, and I'm humbled by your service. This Monday marks the 95th anniversary of the signing of the armistice which brought an end to World War I. That was the first year we commemorated what would become Veterans Day. On this day, we take a break from our routines to honor the sacrifices our veterans have made in service to our Nation.

The changing face of the veteran: from the past to the future

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

November 7, 2013 in Hawaii, Hickam Air Force Base by clevine

America has evolved and so too will the veterans of the future embody a new reality that will differ greatly from those just a generation past.

The veterans of the future will come from a much more diverse background and be composed of a wider swath of government service than in the past; these changes are due not only to demographics, but also in terms of roles and responsibilities within the military structure.

We have evolved as a military fighting force and the citizen's Air Force within which we now operate is composed of civilians, contractors and Guardsmen in addition to active duty Airmen. On many levels it is impossible to distinguish the activities of one category from the next and it is certainly impossible to imagine reverting and operating separately, as we did in the past.

My father’s father: a short story of one veteran

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

November 6, 2013 in Hawaii, Hickam Air Force Base by clevine

It is hard to tell who is a veteran just by looking at someone on the street. Some people wear clothing that proudly displays their military affiliation; others carry the torch silently, without a word.

I never knew that my grandfather was a veteran until I returned home after my first Air Force assignment; in Okinawa.

Upon first seeing me, my grandfather said, "You must be glad to be home to American girls."

I didn't really know what to say or really even how to respond; I had never said one cuss word around him my whole life and definitely never willfully entered the moral conversation that would surely ensue if I talked about dating.

Pilot For a Day: Kodey Deuz

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

Imagine being born with your heart, one the most vital organs in your body, being defective. Next imagine having to endure open heart surgery at the tender age of four months old.

Kodey Deuz 6, was born with a ventricular septal defect in his heart, a condition in which there is one or more holes in the wall that separates the right and left ventricles of the heart.

Though currently free of VSD, Kodey still suffers from aortic stenosis, which is a narrowing of the aortic valve, aortic insufficiency, which is a leaking in the aortic valve, and mitral regurgitation a leaky valve, which causes blood leakage.
