Seventy one years ago today, the U.S. Air Force became an independent service, creating a new breed of warriors to own and protect the skies. Ever since, Airmen have protected America from air, space and cyberspace aggression.
Each squadron in the Air Force faces different stressors and health challenges that require unique solutions. General David Goldfein, Chief of Staff of the Air Force, is leading an effort to revitalize Air Force squadrons.
Air National Guard Airmen are key to supporting Total Force readiness. Training agreements with civilian hospitals are vital to helping them achieve this support.
Sexual assault can be a deeply traumatizing event in anyone’s life. Across the Air Force, Airmen and their families have access to Sexual Assault Prevention and Response or Family Advocacy Program resources to get support and guidance on how to move forward.
One thing Airmen worry about when they deploy is the well-being of their family, especially children who may have a hard time coping with the challenges that come with a parent’s deployment. The impact of deployment on children is a key component of Airmen readiness. Knowing their family is well helps Airmen focus on the mission.

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR URGENT CARE AUTHORIZATIONS: Effective Immediately. Currently, Dr. J's Express Care is the only Urgent Care Center covered by TRICARE without a referral for our non- Active Duty TRICARE Prime patients. Please be aware that you may still be subject to co-pays. For more detailed information on co-pays visit <<a href="https://tricare.mil/Costs/HealthPlanCosts/PrimeOptions/Copayments>." target="_blank">https://tricare.mil/Costs/HealthPlanCosts/PrimeOptions/Copayments>.</a> If you prefer Abilene Diagnostics or Affordacare, you may still go to them for urgent care needs during duty hours ONLY if you have an authorized referral from the 7th Medical Group. If you choose to go to an urgent care that is not Dr. J's without a referral, you will be responsible for the bill. If your urgent care need occurs after hours, go straight to Dr. J's to ensure your visit will be covered (no referral is needed). *Procedures remain the same for our Active Duty patients; referrals are ALWAYS required for urgent care services, to include Dr. J's. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the 7 MDG BCAC (Beneficiary Counseling and Assistance Coordinator), SSgt Torres at 325-696-6060 or contact Tricare East at 1-800-444-5445.
