The Eagle Eyes program is an Air Force anti-terrorism initiative that enlists the eyes and ears of Air Force members and citizens in the fight against terrorism.

Eagle Eyes aims to equip people with knowledge about typical activities terrorists engage in to plan their attacks. Armed with this information, anyone can recognize elements of potential terror planning when they see it.

The program provides a network of local, 24/7 phone numbers to call whenever a suspicious activity is observed. Everyone is encouraged to learn the categories of suspicious behavior and stay attuned to their surroundings. If you observe something suspicious, call 786-415-7900 or 1-877-246-1453. You can also send a message to Crimebusters link or alert local authorities.

While at the Morrell Operations Center, Welsh spoke with Capt. Marcianna Pease, Operations Flight and Range Operations Commander, 45th Operations Support Squadron. "I know many Airmen have been touched by Gen. Welsh's speeches, but two of my lieutenants wanted me to thank him specifically for the speech he gave at the Air Force Academy in 2011," said Pease.

Airfield èmarkingsè support Rescue operations

The old adage that practice makes perfect is not just a saying; it's a way of life for service members. But what happens when the place you need to practice does not exist nearby? 

Airmen of the 45th Space Wing and the 920th Rescue Wing innovated a solution to the distance problem that will result in annual savings of approximately $288,000 by painting a pair of deck landing pads (DLP) on the east-west runway of the Patrick AFB airfield this month.

The deck landing pads here are a pair of easy to miss-'blobs'-of-paint unfamiliar to many fixed-wing pilots, but to the 920th Rescue Wing, the 301st Rescue Squadron and the Air Force at large, they are a place to practice naval deck landings.

Just American: A century of Black life

This post was originally published by Homestead Air Reserve Base, Fla. - Homestead ARB Top Stories

Black History Month, or National African American History Month, is an annual celebration of achievements by black Americans and a time for recognizing the central role of African Americans in U.S. history.

The event grew out of "Negro History Week," the brainchild of noted Harvard-trained historian Carter Woodson. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.

Other countries around the world, including Canada and the United Kingdom, also devote a month to celebrating black history. President Gerald Ford, the commander in chief in 1976, called upon the public to "seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history."
