October 30, 2013 in Arizona, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base by clevine

As members of the Desert Lightning Team it is important that you are aware of the "back to basics" approach the Air Force has taken with regards to strategic communications and the on-going battle to combat sexual assault. Beginning immediately, sexual assault convictions, and the perpetrators of these crimes will be published on-line. You will quickly realize that all the cases listed involve one or more of the following common themes: 1) the use of alcohol, 2) the absence of personal respect for the victim and/or 3) the absence of the victims' consent.

Airmen from D-M received the opportunity to rack up volunteer hours in October by helping out at a local farm.

More than 100 military members helped during Buckelew Farm's "Terror in the Corn"; dressing up in costumes, providing security, and helping with make-up and moving props.

Master Sgt. Manolito Carrabis, 355th Civil Engineering Squadron readiness and emergency management flight superintendent, lead the volunteer opportunity for Airmen.

"I have known Laura Buckelew for a few years and worked in a handful of Haunted houses in my career," said Carrabis. "I asked her if the family would consider using military members as the actors."

Article 137: What is it and how does it apply to me?

This post was originally published by Davis-Monthan Air Force Base - Davis-Monthan News

October 29, 2013 in Arizona, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base by clevine

The Article 137 briefing originates from the Uniform Code of Military Justice. It outlines specific articles within the UCMJ that must be explained to enlisted members at certain times during their career. If you are an enlisted member of the Armed Forces then this briefing will apply to you. Article 137 states these articles must be explained upon entry to active duty, after a member has completed six months of service, and at EVERY re-enlistment.

Your local legal office has been given the responsibility of giving this briefing and tracking who and when members receive it. They do this by partnering with the re-enlistment section of FSS to determine who has re-enlisted, and with First Sergeants and supervisors to ensure attendance of members. For members that have re-enlisted and then immediately deploy or PCS, it is still up to the legal office to make sure everyone receives the briefing in a timely manner.

Airman takes a trip with Honor Flight

An Airman was sponsored to escort a World War II veteran on Honor Flight, Oct. 6-8, 2013.

Staff Sgt. David Wilcken, 612th Air and Space Operations Center air tasking order production technician, was the guardian for Robert Yeschek, a World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War veteran, who traveled to Washington D.C. with 76 other southern Arizona veterans and their guardians.

Honor Flight is an organization that pays for World War II veterans to travel to Washington D.C.to visit the World War II memorial. The inspiration behind this trip came from Earl Morse, a retired Air Force Captain, while he was working at the VA Hospital. Many of his patients did not know that the National World War II Memorial was built and later dedicated in 2004. The first Honor Flight took place in May 2005. Each veteran is assigned a guardian that assists and takes care of them throughout the duration of the trip.

The Arts & Crafts Center here offers many services, classes and products for base members.

When the government began reducing our footprint and the amount of money spent at base levels, the center picked up activities and services that were removed when certain organizations closed.

"The library use to run the Reading & Crafting program, but we have taken it up," said Tracy Dusablon, 355th Force Support Squadron, Arts & Crafts Center manager. "With the government slimming things down, we try to relocate some of the things here so they are still available on base."
