  • Double take: Brothers’ bond extends far beyond twin upbringing

  • Time Tested: Airman serves 21 years on same aircraft

    Since entering active military service in 1956, the C-130 Hercules has earned its place in the storied history of air power, time and time again. From Vietnam all the way up through Operation Inherent Resolve, the C-130 has always made a name for itself by providing critical airlift. For Master Sgt. Norbert Feist, a 386th Expeditionary Aircraft Maintenance Squadron C-130H crew chief, one C-130 in particular has a special place in his personal Air Force storybook.
  • Celebrating Air Force heritage: The “Great Centennial” squadrons

    This calendar year has marked many great anniversaries, including the 75th anniversary of Air Training Command and the 70th anniversary of the Air Force. August marks the 110th anniversary of the Aeronautical Division of the Sign Corps—an unbroken line of Airmen began with its creation on Aug. 1, 1907. This year also marks the 100th Anniversary of America’s entry into World War I, and with it, some 43 active duty and reserve flying squadrons also celebrate or have celebrated their 100th anniversary. Their century of service reinforces something we all know implicitly—the enduring value of the squadron as the core of our Air Force.

"In the predawn hours of March 4, 2002, just below the 10,000-foot peak of a mountain in eastern Afghanistan, a fierce battle raged. Outnumbered by Al Qaeda fighters, Air Force Combat Controller John Chapman and a handful of SEAL Team Six men struggled to take the summit in a desperate bid to find a lost teammate. Chapman, leading the charge, was gravely wounded in the initial assault. His SEAL leader believing he was dead ordered a retreat." - from Alone at Dawn. Last year the Air Force awarded Master Sgt. John Chapman the Medal of Honor. Listen in as Mr. Dan Schilling, former air combat controller and author of Alone at Dawn, talks about what Air Combat Controllers bring to the fight.
