Rosa McCauley Parks is known today as the "mother of the civil rights movement" because her arrest for refusing to give up her bus seat sparked the pivotal Montgomery, Ala., bus boycott. She didn't set out to make history when she left her job as a seamstress to board a bus on the afternoon of Dec. 1, 1955. She was tired, and she just wanted to go home. Still, when the bus driver asked her to move toward the back of the bus so that a white man could sit, she couldn't bring herself to do it.

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.

DOD pays tribute to MLK

This post was originally published by Moody Air Force Base - Moody News

January 13, 2014 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

Martin Luther King's death did not slow the Civil Rights Movement. Black and white people continued to fight for freedom and equality. Coretta Scott King is the widow of the civil rights leader. In 1970, she established the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Center in Atlanta. This "living memorial" consists of his boyhood home and the Ebenezer Baptist Church, where King is buried.

On Monday, Jan. 20, 1986, in cities and towns across the country people celebrated the first official Martin Luther King Day, the only federal holiday commemorating an African-American. A ceremony that took place at an old railroad depot in Atlanta was especially emotional. Hundreds had gathered to sing and to march. Many were the same people who, in 1965, had marched for 50 miles between two cities in Alabama to protest segregation and discrimination of black Americans.

On Dec. 31, 2013, the Department of Defense (DoD) sponsorship of the Automated Housing Referral Network (AHRN) expired. Effective Jan. 1, 2014, housing offices no longer manage rental listings or communicate with members and property owners through AHRN. However, the AHRN website will continue to operate as a commercial entity and registered users will be prompted to review and accept an updated user agreement.

The Air Force remains committed to providing members with affordable, adequate housing and will continue to provide referral and relocation services. Housing offices will maintain available rental listings using a government-managed system. Members and their families should contact or visit the Moody Housing Office to receive assistance in locating suitable housing.
