On filing for tax returns, Albert Einstein once said, "This is too difficult for a mathematician. It takes a philosopher." Despite the difficulty, filing honesty, accurate income tax is an important duty of all Americans, and many benefit from getting a return when they do. While the process can be intimidating and confusing, free help will be available for all active-duty members, Guardsmen, reservists, retirees, and their dependents at the tax center operated by the Malmstrom Tax Assistance Program.

Airmen seeking ‘shaving waivers’

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

November 14, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

In the 341st Medical Group we often manage members seeking shaving waivers. The most common reason is due to pseudofolliculitis barbae, or PFB, which is sometimes known as shaving bumps or ingrown hairs. This condition is a result of inflammation that occurs when closely cut hair becomes trapped under the skin. In addition to the red bumps associated with this condition, it can lead to a secondary infection and excessive scarring. PFB is most common in men with tightly curled hair or hair that curls when cut.

MAFB has been heard: Feedback from community forum

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

November 14, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

During the spring, Team Malmstrom members were able to give suggestions to the community support coordinator on ways to improve the base's quality of life as part of the Caring for People Forum. After only a month of submissions, several Airmen gave input on various different topics; many of which are triggering changes among the installation.

"Airmen have always pioneered innovative ways to defeat obstacles," said Col. Robert Stanley, 341st Missile Wing commander. "This spirit of innovation, of seeing problems from an alternative perspective, is in our culture, in our heritage and in every nuclear Airman, regardless of his or her specialty or role. It is imperative that we continue to listen and provide avenues for future generations to express their ideas in order to remain the greatest Air Force in the world."

Hundreds of feet pounding the wrestling mats echoed in the Malmstrom Air Force Base Fitness Center. A stern man instructed the students to not remove their hand from the ground before planting their feet on the floor.

"Base!" the participants yelled as they stood in the position of combat base.

"Get low and maintain a perpendicular base," said Rener Gracie, Gracie Academy Women Empowered self-defense seminar instructor.

In an effort to reduce the frequency of sexual assaults in the U.S. Armed Forces, the Gracie Academy created the Women Empowered Gracie Defense Systems.
