These are only three of the six events Joint Base Langley-Eustis service members completed to earn the prestigious German Armed Forces Proficiency Badge, one of the most sought after foreign awards approved to be worn on U.S. military uniforms.

U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Trevor Harrison, 633rd Civil Engineer Squadron pavements and construction craftsman, cuts pavement with a power saw at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., Sept. 25, 2017. Airmen pave way to mission readiness
An engine revs as tires roll over the silky black top steadily reaching 40, 50, 60 miles per hour, then, all of a sudden, the front tire sinks into a pothole. The chassis slams against the asphalt, the steering wheel jerks to the side as the sound of screeching tires echo—the car has lost control. If a pilot in control of a U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor were to find such a pothole as it screamed down the runway, the outcome could be catastrophic. To prevent such an incident, the 633rd Civil Engineer Squadron is tasked with the up keep of the oldest active U.S. Air Force airfield, which supports 5th generation weapons systems.

Capt. Jerry Walker, wing psychologist and acting wing surgeon general, and Chaplain (Maj.) Jim Bridgeham, wing chaplain, have just recorded the twelfth episode of their podcast, “The Pillars.” The two have worked hard to craft a show that is personable, relatable across rank and age, and full of tips that Airmen can immediately apply in their own lives. The response so far from the wing has been overwhelmingly positive. Each episode has been downloaded between 60-120 times and one-on-one counseling sessions within the wing have increased.

U.S. Air Force F-22 pilots at Joint Base Langley-Eustis work closely with U.S. Air Force T-38 Talon pilots, who pose as adversary air, to improve their war-fighter capabilities. However, before pilots can perform their duties, they must sharpen their skills and ensure they have proper documentation before they fly. T-38 pilots assigned to the 71st Fighter Training Squadron rely on a 3-person team, known as the squadron aviation resource managers, who ensure they are “good-to-go” when it comes to being legally qualified to fly.

Editor’s note: The following commentary was written in observance of National Mental Health Month. Although “wingmanship” is something I live every day now as an Airman, the concept is something I have been familiar with my entire life. I specifically remember a moment this came into play when I was a 16-year-old assistant Cub Scout leader. We were in the woods and I had sent my pack of eight-year-old Cub Scouts on a mission to find branches to whittle into slingshots. “Remember to look for strong, mendable tree branches!” I shouted to them.
