  • 66th RQS remembers fallen Airmen 20 years later

    The 66th Rescue Squadron (RQS) paid their respects to their fallen brothers during a memorial marking the 20th anniversary of their deaths. A total of 12 Airmen were lost when two HH-60G Pavehawk helicopters, call signs Jolly 38 and Jolly 39, assigned to the 66th RQS were involved in a midair collision over the Nevada Test and Training Range during a routine night exercise Sept. 3, 1998.
  • AFCENT command and control operations weather the storm

    Airmen of the 609th AOC Det. 1 support real-world command and control operations everyday with AFCENT’s forward headquarters at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar. Whether it’s ensuring the Combined Air Operations Center maintains resiliency in the face of any attack or situation, or planning hundreds of daily air mobility missions, this partnership between the Airmen in Qatar and the U.S. is essential to a new model of C2 operations. As a violent force approached, the Airmen dug in to repel the force. It was just like an attack, but this one came from nature.
  • Recognizing 71 years of mission success

    In 1947, the Cold War was in full swing, leading to the U.S.’s need for a more efficient and manageable foreign policy-making establishment. As a solution, President Harry Truman signed the National Security Act of 1947 on Sept. 18, 1947. This act, among other authorizations, separated the U.S. Army Air Corps from the U.S. Army, thus creating the U.S. Air Force.
  • TELMOC supports DoD operations

    Today’s Airmen must be able to fly, fight, and win in complex, multi-domain environments. U.S. partners and allies have come to expect that we will ensure freedom from attack, provide the ability to attack at the time and place of our choosing, and ensure we can operate freely in peace and war. Air superiority is accomplished through rigorous training against realistic threats in environments similar to those seen in contested areas of responsibility.
  • Moody makes some noise during Diversity Day

    Team Moody hosted the 23d Wing Diversity Day, Sept. 14, 2018, at Moody Air Force Base, Ga.

The theme of this year was ’Many Cultures, One Voice: Stronger Through Inclusion And Equality’.
  • PACAF wins Defender Challenge

    After three days of grueling competition in austere environments, Pacific Air Forces bested 13 other U.S. and international security forces teams to capture the Air Force Defender Challenge Championship, held Sept. 10-13 here. Defender Challenge included 14 four-person security forces teams from 12 Air Force major commands, a team from the United Kingdom Royal Air Force and a team from the German Air Force.
  • When can I get my OCPs?

    The official wear date for the operational camouflage pattern uniform is Oct. 1. Some Airmen preparing to deploy, or who have deployed previously and those who have been assigned to Air Force Special Operations Command or Air Force Global Strike Command may already have these uniforms. Others have already purchased OCPs to make sure they are ready come the first week of October. However, there is a caveat attached to the wear date.
  • Moody A-10 engine maintainers make history

    For the first time, Moody’s 23d Maintenance Squadron’s (MXS) propulsion flight accomplished an unprecedented feat by ensuring every TF34 engine in their fleet is repaired to serviceable status. This readiness level relinquishes the need for the flight to perform maintenance on their current A-10C Thunderbolt II engine assets. While they normally maintain the 74th and 75th Aircraft Maintenance Unit’s engines in support of Moody’s close-air support mission, the backshop will now centralize their TF34 repair efforts to assist other bases and Major Commands to include Reserve and National Guard units. This has allowed the 23d MXS to play a vital role in helping secure an Air Force-wide 200 percent ‘war-ready’ engine status, the highest in the TF34’s 40-year history.

  • Honing skills: 366th EMS executes armament training

    The 366th Equipment Maintenance Squadron conducted in-depth F-15E Strike Eagle armament training Aug. 27-30 that will enhance the 366th Fighter Wing’s readiness down-range. EMS armament technicians trained on the Bomb Rack Unit-61, an F-15E equipment piece that houses the Guided Bomb Unit-39. The GBU-39 is a 250-pound small-diameter precision-guided glide bomb that relies on the Global Positioning System to provide navigation to the F-15E’s target.
