Default Air Force Logo Take time to recharge your batteries
Today's high ops tempo in the Air Force demands that all individuals be mentally and physically fit and ready to accomplish the mission.

Default Air Force Logo Lest we forget
As I reflect on the holocaust, one of the most horrific times in the history of mankind, I cannot fathom how Adolph Hitler, a grotesque excuse of a human being, led a nation to systematically murder more than 9 million innocents.
