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.

"There's been some people help write the story and we've also got some people working concessions.

Malmstrom Airmen and members of the Great Falls community rallied together in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month during a 5K run at the Grizzly Bend on Oct. 10. The theme for this year's event was "Give Cancer the Boot."

More than 600 participants took part in the 5K to show support for those who are dealing with breast cancer, as well as the family members of loved ones who lost their battle with this disease.

"It was a great cause and we had great weather, and we all needed to do something athletic. It's been a rough couple of months, and it was great to get out there in the sunshine for a few minutes and enjoy each other's company.

On Oct. 23, at 10:23 a.m. there's going to be an earthquake on Malmstrom Air Force Base.

No, we can't predict the future and no, there's not actually going to be an earthquake here. The Great Rocky Mountain Shakeout is a regional earthquake drill, which runs in conjunction with a worldwide one.

During the drill, people will learn to "drop, cover and hold on," fundamental actions for surviving an actual earthquake.

"It all comes down to being prepared and aware in an emergency situation," said Staff Sgt. Nathan Sisk, 341st Civil Engineer Squadron, Emergency Management NCO in charge. "Earthquakes are possible throughout Montana. In fact, small earthquakes occur almost every day somewhere in the state, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Montana is the most seismically active state."

October is Energy Action Month, and it provides an opportunity for Airmen to learn more about the impact of energy to the Air Force's mission as part of a national campaign led by the Department of Energy. This year's theme, "I am Air Force Energy," puts the Airman at the center of the campaign. The goal is to inspire the total force to be more efficient so they can give the Air Force an assured energy advantage in air, space, and cyberspace.

Beginning this month, the Air Force will highlight specific steps Airmen can take in their jobs to be more energy aware. More efficient flight decent procedures, new ways of loading cargo, and vehicle idle time reduction are just a few of the ways Airmen can help the Air Force achieve its energy goals and maximize its energy advantage to support the mission. Activities during the month include on base energy days, training, facility versus facility energy competitions, videos, fact sheets, and articles distributed via the Air Force

SGLI: Making sure it benefits loved ones

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

September 26, 2013 in Malmstrom Air Force Base, Montana by clevine

Updating a Service member's Group Life Insurance is not just about paperwork, it's about providing for loved ones after Airmen are gone. The SGLI program exists to help military members provide financial security for their families in the event of their death. This money can go directly to whomever is chosen, and may be designated for specific uses, but Airmen must make their choice clear. The following are three tips to make sure an SGLI appropriately provides for loved ones:

First, be sure the named SGLI beneficiaries' information is current. SGLI payments go to whomever is designated, and the only way to update where those payments go is by updating the SGLI paperwork. Airmen should strongly consider updating their beneficiary information if they get married, divorced, have children or change their mind about who should benefit, how much they should get or when they should get it. If they don't, odds are the SGLI program won't do what they want it to.
