Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) is a voluntary program that provides the survivors of participating retirees a monthly income that starts when the member dies and retired pay stops, although election, at any level, to include declination, is mandatory. Although you may not be aware of it, automatic SBP spouse coverage became effective 10 September 2001 under the National Defense Authorization Act of 2002. While on active duty, the government provides this protection at no cost to your spouse. Before retiring from the Air Force, however, you must decide whether or not to continue the SBP.

It's a long road to becoming an Air Force officer, but with the help of experienced mentors, U.S. Air Force Academy cadets are given the building blocks to becoming a leader.

Airmen from the 23d Wing at Moody Air Force Base, Ga., traveled to the Air Force Academy Oct. 3-7 to speak with Cadet Squadron 9, which is sponsored by Moody.

"As cadets here, we don't get a lot of experience regarding the operational side of the Air Force," said U.S. Air Force Cadet Benjamin Dewar, Cadet Squadron 9. "So when speakers come and talk to us, it helps us get a perspective of how things are ... and what to look forward to."
