Renovations to the Malmstrom Museum began on July 30th to repair weathering damage that has taken its toll on the museum's outdoor static displays since its opening in the early 1980s.

Free estate planning, wills available

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

August 15, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

Many Airmen who have not deployed--and even a few who have--may not know the Air Force provides free estate planning services to all active-duty members and dependents. Estate planning is actually a key part of the free legal assistance the Air Force provides to Airmen. A type of document known as a "will" sits at the heart of estate planning.

Formally known as a "last will and testament," a will is a document that dictates, with some exceptions, where a person's things go when that person passes. A will allows a person to distribute specific goods to specific people, and ensures that distribution happens in an orderly fashion. In short, a will allows a person to give his house to Harry, his ring to Rosie, his truck to Tommy, and so forth.

2nd annual school fair reaches out to MAFB families

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

August 15, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

When asked why they joined the U.S. Air Force, a common answer among Airmen is "to travel."

While many Airmen are fortunate - or less fortunate - to receive orders to a new assignment; uprooting a family and moving to a different district, state or country can sometimes be a stressful experience.

To help make the transition for Airmen, their spouses and children as stress-free as possible, the Airman and Family Readiness Center teamed up with Great Falls Public Schools to host their second annual GFPS Information Fair at the Grizzly Bend at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont. on Aug. 12.

341st Missile Wing commander issues statement on NSI results

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

August 13, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

Below is an official statement from Col. Robert Stanley, 341st Missile Wing commander, after the wing's recent receipt of an 'unsatisfactory' rating following the Nuclear Surety Inspection conducted by the Air Force Global Strike Command Inspector General.

"I wish I could openly describe the details of this inspection and its results to our community. But, to do that would give America's adversaries far too much information about how we operate. What I can say is that these inspections are as exacting a test as one can possibly imagine. They are a pass/fail test of enormous complexity. Imagine being in a college physics class, and working through five pages of calculations on a problem. But, you receive no credit if your answer is off by even a decimal. That is the nature of our job, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

2013 Critical Days of Summer, Week 11: Basketball Jones

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

August 1, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

Traditionally, basketball has been a winter sport. When cold weather sets in, it was easy to snag a few bodies and get a game going in a warm gym. Today, basketball is a year round sport. With warmer weather, games go outdoors to the blacktop. As an extremely popular activity, basketball is also the culprit of many injuries. But in the Air Force, basketball injuries can turn into lost work days, which can hinder mission accomplishment.

During 2012's Critical Days of Summer, the Air Force suffered 40 basketball related injuries that caused lost work days. Since the beginning 2013, Team Malmstrom has suffered 39 recorded basketball injuries. This means 39 individuals hurt themselves playing basketball and required a visit to the doctor. Out of those 39 injuries, five resulted in lost work days. Most of these injuries could have been prevented. A few simple changes can reduce the number lost work days and thus reduce a strained work-force.
