  • May Chaplain's Reflections

    Here we are, a third of the way through 2021, and the mission continues for the Swamp Foxes.  Many of our fellow Airmen are currently located at the tip of the spear, performing their best while putting their training to the test.  Each CBT, PowerPoint presentation, TO document, and group huddle prepares us for the moment when we are called to serve.  Isn’t this what we train for?

    This will be my sixth Desert Storm article honoring the Desert Storm Call-Up folks, and the third of ten articles honoring the 169th Consolidated Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. I have expanded more key personnel and my goal is to honor and name as many people as I can in this article and subsequent articles.

  • Meet your Swamp Fox SARC

    Annually we acknowledge and celebrate Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) in April. It was formerly known as Sexual Assault Awareness Month. SAAPM has been observed nationally by the National Sexual Violence Resource Center since. This month we are honored to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of SAAPM.
  • March Commander's Corner

    In order to grow and get better we must reflect on our actions both as individuals and organizations. In unprecedented times we must not accept the status quo in any aspects of our lives both personally and professionally. The last year has proven that the world is changing faster than any of us has ever imagined and we are faced with new challenges. We have witnessed a global pandemic, civil unrest and turmoil in our lives at every turn. However, as Swamp Foxes we have continued the mission, supported each other in both good and bad times, and kept faith that tomorrow will be better for us all. We must reflect on what we did well and where we have room for improvement to fulfill the hope of a better tomorrow.
  • March Chief's Perspective

    As I sit down to prepare my thoughts for this article I cannot help but feel very humbled by recently becoming a newly minted chief master sergeant within the best organization top to bottom that I’ve ever been associated with. I have spent the last 34 years of my 36-year career as a proud Swamp Fox constantly standing in awe of just how much collectively has been achieved while our Airmen and families serve to protect our state and nation. I would like to give you my perspective on leadership, how I think we are doing currently, and where we are headed for the future.
  • March Shirt Blast

    We're told from the get go that we need to be in a state of readiness. From basic, we had to hurry up and wait. In tech school, we had to be ready for class at a moment's notice. At your base now, are you ready to be deployed? I want you to think about readiness from a different, deeper perspective--about you, about your life. Are you ready for the next level (for example: promotion, goals, what's next in life)? 
  • March Chaplain's Reflections

    “So, you’re like an altar boy or something?” It was perhaps the most creative guess I’ve heard when I shared my Air Force job title. This guy I met at a barbeque is now my boyfriend, despite his comparison of me to a young catholic boy in robes. More often, I get a simple, “What the heck is a chaplain assistant?” It is true that we do assist the chaplains. But dealing with weighty issues such as where you’ll spend eternity is really only a very small part of a chaplain assistant’s day-to-day responsibilities. Instead, I like to think of our job as being a life coach. Or at least a life assistant coach.
