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.

Our nation&#39;s birthday is a time of celebration. As you enjoy your well deserved break, remember to put safety first. Plan your activities in advance, identify the risks and take the necessary precautions to make this a mis-hap free 4th of July holiday for yourselves, your families and your fellow citizens. Remember that alcohol and fatigue do not mix with driving, riding or water sports. Keeping your seatbelt buckled and wearing proper protective gear significantly increase your chances of surviving an accident. Have a safe and happy holiday! RICHARD W. RILEY, A1C, USAF AETC
