As part of a Provincial Reconstruction Team it is common to go "outside the wire" to do work. While some may only leave the base once a week, engineers are out there every day conducting site assessments, quality control missions and preparing the province to respond to natural disasters. April 1, while out on an inspection of a handful of

Keller) Overcoming personal tragedy, inspiring others
Upon seeing him, one would never suspect a difference between him and any other uniformed servicemember. He stands tall, exhibiting a more-than-personable attitude and fervor for military professionalism. However, there is more to this Airman than anyone would immediately suspect. In May 2007, Master Sgt. Ronald Heller, 28th Operations Support

Al Weatherbee, 28th Maintenance Group technical service senior equipment propulsion specialist, rummages through Ellsworth's collection of B-1 parts, most of which were previously located at several different bases, but are now a consolidated stockpile of equipment and parts commonly known as Al's Garage.  Al's Garage has saved the Air Force roughly 4 million dollars in assets by having all part in one location. (U.S. Air Force photo/ Senior Airman Anthony Sanchelli)
Al's Garage saves Air Force money, aircraft downtime
In today's Air Force Smart Operations for the 21st Century mindset, thinking outside of the box is not only encouraged, it is necessary. Al Weatherbee, Air Force Engineering and Technical Service senior equipment propulsion specialist, did just that when he created the B-1 residual parts stockpile more commonly know as Al's garage. The acquisition

Default Air Force Logo Reaching out during holiday deployments
The holidays are a time of giving, sharing and celebrating with loved ones. But amidst the gift opening, revelry and joy, some Air Force families and friends find themselves celebrating without the company of a deployed servicemember. When an Air Force member is deployed during the holiday season, it's especially crucial to maintain solid contact

Default Air Force Logo The stress of getting there
Preparations begin as 14 Airmen learn they will travel to the Czech Republic in support of Ellsworth's B-1 as it participates for the first time in the Czech air show, Czech International Air Fest 2007. Finding out I was one of those 14 was both exciting and nerve-wrecking. I'd never traveled outside the country and had no idea what to do. I

Two Ellsworth spouses take pictures of a B-1 through the window of a KC-135 during an incentive flight Aug. 9. During the flight, the spouses were able to view a refueling procedure from the boom pod of the tanker. Ellsworth spouses view mission from different perspective
A handful of Ellsworth wives did what few Americans get the chance to do Aug. 9 when they flew with the crew of a KC-135R Stratotanker during a routine air-refueling mission of a B-1. The incentive flight gave about 10 spouses of B-1 aircrew members a chance to experience a portion of what their significant others do during a 12-hour sortie. "As

The pale, cold light of dawn slowly creeps over the horizon of no man's land - the twisted, charred and ruinous contested landscape marking the lines between Germany and France. On this cold fall morning in 1915, Allied Airmen climbed into their flying machines, which aren't much more than crates of wood and cloth held together by a little glue and

Patriot Guard Rider “Bear” displays signposts detailing his military service on his riding vest as he waits at Ellsworth Air Force Base, S.D., for the return of 28th Bomb Wing Airmen, July 27, 2007. During the Airmen’s 6 month deployment to Southwest Asia they supported combat operation for Operations IRAQI FREEDOM and ENDURING FREEDOM.

Patriot Guard Riders welcome home Airmen; integrate with Ellsworth's honor guard
The old vet walks gingerly with the aid of a well-worn cane, rested on the picnic table beneath the shade of an oak tree beside the deployment processing center here. The tattooed arms detailing his life's journey once cradled a rifle in a hellish jungle far away. Now they embrace an American flag. The leather riding vest tells his story while his
