The 944th Aeromedical Staging Squadron Airmen spent time after work hours March 22 helping pick up trash around the South Gate Visitor Reception Center.

The ASTS’s Community Service Team led the initiative to help beautify the base.

The newly formed team was co-founded by Capt. John Lewis, 944th ASTS medical readiness and logistics officer, and Senior Airman Ashlynd Fine, 944th ASTS medical technician. As managers of the Community Service Team, the duo work together in determining which areas need the most help, plan monthly events, raise awareness, and coordinate with other units and civilian organizations.

Lewis explained that the thought behind the trash pickup event at the South Gate is that when guests arrive at Luke Air Force Base, a clean visitor center is the first thing people see and the first impression we as a community make.

“The volunteer turnout was great. We had a good mix of officers, junior and senior enlisted,” Fine said. “I think all of us that participate in the Community Service Team appreciate the diversity and camaraderie between ranks.”

The seed for establishing a Community Services Team was planted in September 2013 when members of the unit were asking about volunteer opportunities.

“We are in our infancy, but we are ready to grow and be more beneficial for the community. Doing community service work allows our members to reflect on the difference they can make in society,” Lewis said. “I would think that some members will gain a greater understanding of their roles in the community, as well as the impact of their contributions towards those in need of service. It is a win-win situation.”

The 944th ASTS Community Service Team hopes to grow, branch out and coordinate more events on and off Luke AFB. Lewis went on to say, “I would like the rest of the wing to know that we encourage anyone from the 944th FW to join us in our endeavors, thereby increasing our capabilities.”

On April 5, during the Unit Training Assembly the group was outside of the 944th ASTS building, at it again pulling weeds and picking up trash.
