  • Aloha mai kākou!

    The U.S. Air Force has granted me and my family many opportunities to travel and experience various cultures, history and foods.

  • 31st CES Airman encourages AA&PI heritage month participation

    I remember shipping out of Honolulu wearing shorts and slippers. I had my itinerary, 60 dollars, and two spam musubi’s on my way to making the best memories and meeting lifelong friends.

    2020 was a promising year for me until a global pandemic suddenly revealed itself to the world. Being my first duty station, Aviano Air Base has provided the growth my career has needed. Sadly, a lot of my progression has come to pause due to the virus. I know I’m not the only one who has had a

  • Get Your Bounce Back

    I believe that every Airman has a story. Sometimes that story is hidden behind fear, doubt, confusion or untapped potential. I believe that all of our stories start off much like, “I only planned on finishing out my enlistment, to finish my education and get out.” I am Tech. Sgt. Ebony H. Brooks and

    We are all outraged and deeply saddened by the tragic situation ongoing in the United States, as human beings, as Americans, as Airmen, and as the Family that we are as Wyverns.
