The Malmstrom Air Force Base Fitness Center has recently implemented a series of fitness incentive programs to motivate members of Team Malmstrom to keep active year-round.

"Creating these fun programs has brought a sense of motivation for our customers," said Senior Airman Miriam Santiago, 341st Force Support Squadron fitness specialist. "These programs give them goals they can achieve while having fun at the same time. It gets them involved and makes them work toward a goal rather than doing the same old routine every day. If we [fitness center personnel] can provide ways to help a costumer get fit while enjoying their workout at the same time, then we have done our job."

Air Force Global Strike Command's active social media program aims to reach Airmen where they live and work, according to command officials, who noted this is the primary communication method for many people today.

The command has made strides to create a social media presence and has empowered the wings to do the same, tailoring each platform to their own unique communities and mission.

"To effectively engage with Airmen, we must at least understand the way they communicate," said Chief Master Sgt. Brian Hornback, AFGSC command chief. "Social media not only serves as a way to communicate internally with our Airmen, but also as a means to tell the story of our Airmen to external audiences who are actively engaged in social networks themselves."

As a freshman in high school, he was a 4x800 relay member on his school's track team in Huntington Beach, Calif.

But it wasn't until his junior year of college when he ran his first marathon - the Air Force Half Marathon - that he found his niche.

It's not completely unknown to Airmen across the Air Force that there are programs put in place for their sole benefit and successful progression of their careers. But it may not be as commonly known that Airmen can give back to a specific few of these beneficial programs.

The Air Force Assistance Fund is a campaign put in place to give Air Force members the opportunity to give back to fellow Airmen. This year's campaign started March 4 and will continue through April 12.

MAFB Airmen visit Helena for weapons training

More than 20 Malmstrom Air Force Base Airmen and civilians visited Fort Harrison Army National Guard Post in Helena, Mont., on Feb. 26 and 27 to complete weapons qualification training.

Malmstrom's 341st Security Support Squadron Combat Arms office, responsible for conducting all base marksmanship instruction and qualification training, led the M240B machine gun and M249 automatic rifle courses.

"Airmen had to qualify on these weapons on a full [1,000 meter] range. Our [on-base] range is only 10 meters," said Les Christensen, 341st SSPTS Combat Arms supervisor. "This range is more realistic. You're getting the full effect and seeing how far your bullets can reach. Shooting full distance is just so much better than shooting a piece of paper. I get instant feedback on a pop-up range."

Interview room suits victims’ needs

March 4, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

All members of Team Malmstrom should be aware that there is a zero tolerance policy against sexual assault or harassment in the Air Force and, of course, on this base. Sexual assault is a crime and can have a significant impact on the base's mission and the Airmen, so everyone should hold themselves responsible for stopping any attempt of this crime.

While sexual assault is, in more ways than one, a negative element on all parts of the Air Force, it's somehow still a part of the service. After a sexual assault case has been reported, there are people all over the service that put hours of time and effort into helping the victims get back onto their feet.
