Just a building block

This team is quick to respond to intersection collisions. They proved this last year when three off-duty firefighters performed Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation, provided traffic control and administered medical aid during one such accident. Their actions enabled the emergency room the ability to revive the injured.

Not only are they fast to respond to accidents, but they also recognize the importance of working as a team. Team Minot's fire team responds with other local fire stations when fighting fires off base, as they demonstrated last year when 18 acres of grass caught fire. As a result of their efforts, local farms surrounding the fire were saved.

It was a little more than one year ago that Airman 1st Class Tavarus A. Roberts, 791st Missile Security Forces Squadron response force leader, committed to boxing as a way of staying fit.

With minimal experience he quickly aspired to join the Air Force Boxing Team, which many doubted he could accomplish.

While it was a high bar to set at the time, he said he was the type of person that once he set his sights on something, with hard work, he would achieve it no matter what.

With talk of igloos floating around 5th Medical Group's mental health clinic, rules were established and Airmen took advantage of Minot's winter as they competed in an igloo challenge.

What started off as a family activity for 1st Lt. Vidalia Owens and her husband Tech. Sgt. Shawn Owens, both members of the 5th MDG Mental Health Flight, soon became an office competition to see who could build a better igloo.

Competitors had approximately a month and a half to strategize and complete their igloos before the judging on Feb. 19.

There is currently a conversation across the country as to the impact of early childhood education and other school programs on a child's opportunity for success in the future.

With even the President making his case to a national audience about the importance of investing in education, there is something to be said about the nation's outlook on hands-on student engagement at all levels.

There are several agencies here that have teamed with the STARBASE North Dakota Program to give fifth grade students in the Minot Public School system the opportunity to see the real-world involvement of professionals in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) related career fields.

Senior Airmen who have just graduated Airman Leadership School are ready and prepared to be supervisors. While ALS certainly does everything it can to adequately prepare Airmen for the task of supervisor, life usually has a way of throwing a curveball. That's where Minot 5/6 comes in.

"One of the main benefits of being a member is being able to network with fellow NCOs across the base," said Staff Sgt. Emily Irwin-Green, Minot 5/6 secretary. "We have several committees set up to provide members the chance to excel by leading these committees. Every month we have guest speakers who attend our general council meetings and provide us with information on current events and ways to better enhance ourselves professionally."
