The American300 tour visited Malmstrom Air Force Base once again Sept. 19. For this visit, the tour brought along a special guest who served as a fighter pilot during the Vietnam War and was shot down resulting in a six-year imprisonment at the Hoa Lo Prison, better known as the Hanoi Hilton.

Maj. Gen. (ret.) Edward Mechenbier had his share of struggles throughout his military career. For the majority of the time he was held captive, he survived on less than 800 calories a day. The cell he lived in was 7 feet long by 9 feet wide and he shared it with one other inmate.

Four 40th Helicopter Squadron crew members on a UH-1N Huey helicopter helped record the unit's 398th successful Search and Rescue mission after rescuing a hunter who had gotten separated from his group in the Beartooth Wilderness, south of Livingston, Mont.

On Sept. 21, after the hunter had been separated from his group for nearly 24 hours, civilian agencies, in conjunction with the Park County Sheriff's Department, started a ground search for the man covering a six-square-mile area. Towards the end of the day, the sheriff's office requested a helicopter crew to search for the man with Forward Looking Infrared, or FLIR, sensors during the nighttime hours.

Drowning Pool members - Jason Moreno, lead vocalist; C.J. Pierce, guitarist; Mike Luce, drummer; and Stevie Benton, bass guitarist, flew into Great Falls, Mont., to perform at Malmstrom Air Force Base - the band's last stop on a three-base United Service Organization tour.

Following USO concerts at Whiteman AFB, Mo., and F.E. Warren AFB, Wyo., the band performed an array of songs for Team Malmstrom members during a concert at the base theater Sept. 13.

"We totally respect all of the men and women in service," Pierce said. "They've been all around the world and we just do this out of respect for them. It kind of gives them a piece of home especially when they're away in war zones. You just kind of give them that mental break and bring them back home for a minute at the rock shows. It's just a great feeling."

Legal, medical implications of toxicating substances

September 20, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

"Spice" or "K2," is an herbal mixture sprayed with chemicals that's meant to create a high similar to smoking marijuana, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Though it does not specifically contain tetrahydrocannabinol, or commonly known as THC, Spice and similar intoxicants are also considered drugs and their misuse is prohibited.

One of the most important reasons Airmen are restricted from using Spice is because of the potentially dangerous side effects it can cause. The manufacturing isn't closely controlled and there can be unknown dangerous ingredients. Some of the reported side effects include hallucinations, vomiting, hyper-aggressive behavior, rapid heart rate and confusion. Spice can also raise blood pressure and cause reduced blood supply to the heart (myocardial ischemia). In a few cases it has been associated with heart attacks.

Federal law mandates office paper recycling

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

September 20, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

Malmstrom Air Force Base members may not be aware of federal law 40 CFR § 246.200-1, which mandates the recycling of office paper on federal installations. The law specifically states, "High-grade paper generated by office facilities of more than 100 office workers shall be separated at the source of generation, separately collected and sold for the purpose of recycling."

Malmstrom complies with this mandate by contracting for biweekly office paper pickups. The majority of buildings have 90-gallon, grey office paper recycling containers located in their facilities. The containers belong to the contractor and are assigned to the facilities and shouldn't be removed for other purposes. Knowledge of the proper way to recycle office paper lowers disposal costs, obtains revenue from the sale of the paper, conserves trees and reduces air, water and land pollution.

With a 120-inch high definition projection monitor, and capabilities to screen more than 50 workouts both on and off location, Team Malmstrom members now have more opportunities to sustain a high level of physical fitness.

Traditionally used as the spin or aerobics room, the new Fit for Duty room at the Malmstrom Air Force Base Fitness Center recently became one of 66 Air Force installations to receive a virtual "Fitness on Request" kiosk.

"The purpose [of Fitness on Request] is really addressing the aerobics instructor and to supplement all of our aerobics contracts," said James Muscle, 341st Force Support Squadron sports and fitness director. "There have been bases throughout the Air Force that couldn't support over-exaggerated costs for instructors and there weren't enough
