Hawaii Tears prick the corner of Tech. Sgt. Andrew Shepherd's eye as he accepts the folded flag in honor of his late grandfather, Marion Shepherd, at the December 7th Remembrance Ceremony at Hickam Field.

Shepherd, who's assigned to the 15th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron here, had the unique opportunity of attending the remembrance ceremony on behalf of his family and being a participant - an experience he said left him "utterly speechless."

"Today was different than I expected it to be," he said after the ceremony. "I knew it would be emotional, but it was almost hard for me to keep my composure at times ... there are really no words to describe the moment. Being able to participate gave me a chance to honor my grandfather and show my gratitude to him and his comrades on a personal level, and I'm thankful for having had the opportunity."

Members from the Pacific Air Forces C-17 aerial demonstration team from Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam, Hawaii, flew across the North Pacific Ocean recently to represent the U.S. Air Force and demonstrate aircraft capabilities at the 4th biennial Brunei Darussalam International Defense Exhibition from Dec 2-6.

"BRIDEX 2013 allows the U.S. to come together with our Pacific neighbors in the region, and gives us the opportunity to learn about each other. It brings a multitude of aircraft, international pilots and aircrews together." said Maj. Mat Klingenberg, Pacific Air Forces demonstration team pilot. "We received the opportunity to view various types of aircraft via static display and flights, and learn about their unique capabilities. It was a great learning experience for us, with over 70 countries represented."

Caper ‘elves’ collect cookies, deliver to Hickam Airmen

Hickam and local community volunteers took a brief break from the daily grind Dec. 3 to become Cookie Caper "elves," collecting dozens upon dozens of cookies for this year's drive.

The Cookie Caper program solicits donations for freshly baked cookies from base and community members. Caper "elves" then collect and sort the cookies in holiday-themed bags which are distributed to base Airmen.

"This year has been surprisingly effortless when it came to collecting cookies," said Senior Master Sgt. Lori Shackleford, the 15th Medical Operations Squadron superintendent, and co-organizer of this year's drive. "We didn't really have to reach out to people to donate cookies because so many people wanted to support this great cause."

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.

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.
