Air Force Sergeants Association is the only association solely dedicated to representing enlisted men, women and their families.

It's more than just maintaining existing allowances ... it's also about contributing to the discussion in a way that lawmakers better understand Airmen's needs. In fact, because of AFSA's reputation, they have a by-name seat at the influential tables in both Congress and the Pentagon to help shape the tough policy decisions affecting the enlisted corps today.

Malmstrom relocates old housing through OWS

Team Malmstrom members may have experienced some uncommon traffic jams in the past few weeks, as some of the base's roads were occupied by base housing units. While the housing units haven't transformed into living creatures roaming wildly on the streets of Malmstrom Air Force Base, they are moving for a good cause.

Malmstrom AFB is currently partnering with Operation Walking Shield to relocate old base housing to Native American Reservations in need of extra units.

According to the OWS website, www.walkingshield.org/operation.shtml, "Walking Shield assists with the integration of combined civil-military activities through the Department of Defense's Innovative Readiness Training program. The IRT program utilizes military expertise to address the inadequate healthcare, infrastructure and housing on American Indian reservations. IRT projects enhance unit training and readiness, while filling a community need that is not otherwise being met."

Testing for STDs: Better safe than sorry

Airmen in the United States Air Force have an obligation to their country, their service, their mission and, most importantly, to themselves to be "fit to fight" in all ways possible. This means maintaining a healthy persona mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Each element of health can directly, or indirectly, affect its three partners. Take for example, emotional health - depression, an emotional disorder, can have physical effects on a person's body. While each element requires its own specific attention, there isn't one that overshadows the others. However, having good overall physical health can help people focus on the other three elements, which can sometimes be overlooked.

In light of the U.S. Air Force suspending military Tuition Assistance for the rest of the fiscal year, personnel from the 341st Force Support Squadron Education and Training Center provided two briefings for Airmen on alternative ways to pursue education at the auditorium March 15 and 19.

"Because of sequestration, Air Force TA was suspended on March 11," said Lanette Hetrick, 341st FSS education services specialist. "This includes an annual $4,500 that was given to active-duty Airmen every year. The suspension also includes the one-time certification or license Airmen had. Even though Airmen don't have tuition assistance right now, there are other ways to help pay for education."

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."

Command communication: Dynamic, evolving

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."

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.
