Top AF leaders visit Moody Airmen

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

April 3, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Mark A. Welsh III and Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Cody visited here April 1 to meet with Airmen and discuss Air Force priorities.

Welsh and Cody spent most of the day talking with and getting to know the base's Airmen and their missions.

During an Airman's Call, the Air Force leaders addressed Team Moody as a whole and expressed their gratitude toward the men and women who get the job done.

"We're just here to say thank you to you for what you do," Welsh said. "[Thank you] for the work you've been doing out of this great base for a long, long time, and some really difficult work so many of you have been doing in the war zone and other places around the world."

Air Force reservists and retirees eligible for TRICARE healthcare programs

This post was originally published by Dobbins Air Reserve Base, Ga. - Headlines

April 2, 2013 in Dobbins Air Reserves Base, Georgia by clevine

TRICARE has affordable healthcare programs available for all Air Force Reserve retirees - including "gray-area retirees" and actively-participating Air Force reservists, no matter what orders they are on.

Reservists that retire before age 60 are eligible for TRICARE Retired Reserve coverage while they are in the "gray-area." This is the waiting period between retiring from active service and collecting their Air Force Reserve retirement pay at age 60.

While on active duty orders for more than 30 days, all Citizen Airmen are covered by TRICARE Prime. However, reservists could find themselves with no healthcare insurance when they are in between active duty orders. To ensure coverage for themselves and their families, reservists can enroll in TRICARE Reserve Select.

EO discusses workplace conduct

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

March 29, 2013 in Georgia, Moody Air Force Base by clevine

Do you occasionally make jokes or engage in discussions about sex while at work? Do you use racial or religious slurs in the duty section? Do you feel since no one complains about these behaviors that nothing is wrong? Do you feel these behaviors are acceptable because you work in a predominantly male or female duty section?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, it's likely you are engaging in inappropriate conduct at work that may have unlawful discriminatory and sexual harassment overtones, and are in violation of Air Force policy. These types of violations can result in corrective actions to include separation or termination. While making jokes in the duty section based on race, color, sex (to include sexual harassment), national origin, religion, age or disabilities may be funny for some individuals in the short term, these types of behaviors have long term effects on a unit.

Col. Tim Tarchick, 94th Airlift Wing commander, recognized three 94th Communications Squadron Department of Defense civilians on March 28 at a wing staff meeting held in the 94th AW headquarters building.

These DOD civilians were recognized for their outstanding contributions to the base.

Bobbie Mitchell, 94th Communications Squadron administrative assistant, was honored as the 2012 Information Dominance Air Force Outstanding Civilian Technician.

David Felix and Ernest "Getting-it-done" Frame were honored by Tarchick with the "Lunch Pail" Award, given to personnel who may not receive a lot of recognition because they primarily operate behind the scenes.
