Spearheaded by Lori Muzzanna, 341st Missile Wing community support coordinator; Amia Watson, 341st Medical Operations Squadron outreach manager; and 2nd Lt. Charles Frazier, 341st Missile Maintenance Squadron electro-mechanical team officer in charge, and sponsored by the first sergeants' council, the idea was suggested after blood donations from Malmstrom plummeted.

Cicero once said, "Read at every wait; read at all hours; read within leisure; read in times of labor; read as one goes in; read as one goes out. The task of the educated minds is simply put: read to lead."

Malmstrom Air Force Base Library personnel work year-round to maintain reading programs to prove libraries are still essential assets to the U.S. Air Force and the world.

Political activity: Don’t cross the line

American citizens live in a country that provides substantial freedoms not enjoyed in many places. They benefit from the protections of the Constitution, which announces and preserves social rights, including rights to participate in government decisions.

The Air Force encourages all of its members to carry out their rights and responsibilities as citizens of the United States and to get involved in politics by voting and engaging in other appropriate activities. However, due to its position as part of the nation's military, the Air Force must also set up rules governing active-duty members' involvement in political activities. These rules are necessary to preserve good order and discipline, avoid conflicts of interest and avoid the appearance of improper endorsement. Due to these necessary constraints, active-duty military members should remember that there are extra duties imposed on them when they choose to delve into politics. The following provides advice on some,

Malmstrom focuses on conserving energy, resources

October 25, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

More restrictive budget constraints have prompted an increased focus on energy conservation at Malmstrom Air Force Base.
In prior years, Malmstrom's utility bills were fully funded by higher headquarters. In fiscal year 2014, the 341st Missile Wing will receive a significantly reduced utility budget.

"This utility budget constraint will directly impact the 341st Missile Wing," said 2nd Lt. Samantha Luch, 341st Civil Engineer Squadron energy manager. "Our overall budget has steadily decreased over time. With this new budget cut, we will have to redirect resources away from our operations and maintenance requirements to ensure we have enough funds to cover our energy needs."

Airmen from around Malmstrom Air Force Base participated in the last games of this year's flag-football regular season Oct. 17 at the base softball fields. In all, more than 100 Airmen dedicated their time and athletic ability to represent their respective squadrons in an effort to make it to a playoff game and hold the title of Malmstrom's top flag-football team.

"This is a great chance for Airmen to get out and interact with other people," said Staff Sgt. Josue Silva, 341st Force Support Squadron intramural sports director. "For some of these guys, this is one of the only opportunities they get to relax away from work and do something they truly enjoy. It's a lot of fun to watch everyone get out, play some football and just get away from the struggles of day-to-day life for a while."

Dental clinic offering mouthguards

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

October 17, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

The 341st Medical Operations Squadron Dental Flight will be hosting a custom sports mouthguard clinic tomorrow, Oct. 18, from 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. for all active-duty personnel and sponsored dependents.

According to the American Dental Association, wearing a mouthguard helps buffer an impact that might otherwise result in injuries to the teeth, lips, tongue and jaw. It's also believed that they may reduce the severity and occurrence of concussions. Mouthguards generally cover the upper teeth; however, if someone has a protruding jaw, their dentist may recommend that their lower teeth also be covered. Additionally, for people who wear braces, have a receding chin or have a cleft palate, it would be beneficial to get a custom mouthguard made, as well.
