  • AMMO troops count every shot, make every shot count

    “If it goes pop, sizzle, bang or boom, we deal with it,” said Staff Sgt. Bryan Gibree, 39th Maintenance Squadron munitions inspection supervisor. “It’s our job to make sure that everyone has the munitions they need—when and where they need it— and that those munitions will be effective and reliable.” This is why the U.S. Air Force isn’t a glorified mail service—because of dedicated munitions Airmen who put the “fire” in firepower.

  • Different strokes: Airman combines love for drawing, Air Force

    With one paint brush secured in her right hand and another tucked behind her ear she effortlessly applies bright-yellow paint to her newest masterpiece. When presented with the chance to combine her love for drawing with her love for her job, one Airman jumped at the opportunity to create a mural for her squadron’s heritage room. The loud music blaring over the speakers in the background fits today’s mood, but it doesn’t matter because drawing is always her happy place. Though the environment has changed throughout the years, from doodling notebook sketches to drawing on canteens, they all symbolize one thing: an Airman’s love for creating new things.

Members of the 728th Air Mobility Squadron are putting an end to that and crafting new ideas from some of their most creative members: junior Airmen and new NCOs. To encourage creativity and empower the squadron’s future leaders, leadership at the 728th AMS created a Solutions Group, which is comprised of members from across the squadron. The Solutions Group solves work-related issues they have either experienced or noticed and brainstorm ways to fix those problems.
