Pearl Harbor’s born legacy: The Mighty Eighth

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

Three-thousand eight-hundred and nine headstones make perfectly-patterned lines in the grass. Over 5,000 names are inscribed on a wall to pay tribute to those whose remains were never found. The near 9,000 individuals remembered at Cambridge American Cemetery and Memorial in Madingley, England are not United Kingdom natives, but Americans. The majority of the names on display at the cemetery are of Airmen from the Eighth Air Force.

The Eighth Air Force was activated less than two months after the attack on Pearl Harbor. With its near 17,000 airplanes completing more than 1.6 million sorties throughout World War II, the Airmen of the Mighty Eighth became a critical part of America's forces.

Winter driving can be trying, on both the vehicle and its driver. As with many other things in life, preparation is the key to success.

A few cold-weather parts and preparatory procedures can make the difference between being stuck in a drift and making it home.

There are a number of simple things you can do to help prevent some of the more common hassles that winter weather brings on.

Some of these can be done individually; others will need to be done by qualified auto mechanics. Note: Always follow vehicle owner's manual instructions for maintenance and upkeep of your vehicle, including recommendations for winter preparations.

My two cents: Debt Consolidation Loans (DCLs)

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

December 3, 2013 in Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota by clevine

I have decided to provide a financial thought, or if you will my two cents, on a money topic every once in a while. I want to talk about Debt Consolidation Loans. I have seen numerous clients in the more than eight years I have worked with the Airman and Family Readiness Center that have considered DCLs.

The reason these loans are so attractive to people is as follows:

· Lower monthly payments
· They offer instant financial relief
· They are convenient because you can combine several credit payments into one

A Time to be Thankful

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

November 26, 2013 in Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota by clevine

Strikers,

In 1621, the Pilgrims set aside a day to be thankful for a plentiful harvest after surviving a devastating winter.

This year we, too, have much to be thankful for. We are blessed to live in a country where we enjoy freedom many others do not possess. This freedom came at a high price for our forefathers. Our nation owes a debt of gratitude to all those who fought to give us this freedom, and those who work daily to protect it, including those from our Air Force Global Strike family.
