Fly Over: ‘Ghostbusters’, and ‘Young Adam’

Posted March 7, 2014 by Nestor Cruz and Tristan Hinderliter

Available on Netflix: ‘Ghostbusters’ I was shocked and saddened to hear the news last week of the passing of Harold Ramis. He was, hands down, one of the great comedic minds of our time, having co-wrote, directed and starred in several comedy classics including “Animal House,” “Caddyshack,” “Stripes,” “National Lampoon’s Vacation” and “Groundhog Day.” This…

Posted February 28, 2014 by Senior Master Sgt. LEROY RIDGEL

Over the next several months our leadership’s prowess will be tested. On Dec. 11, 2013, Air Force senior leaders announced the rollout of several programs that may reduce our force by as much as 25,000 over the next five years.

Quitting smoking only way to go

Posted February 21, 2014 by Senior Airman GRACE LEE

Every morning started the same way. After coughing up phlegm from smoking the day prior, I’d brush my teeth, do my hair, put on my uniform and have a cigarette. And every time I did this, I’d ask myself why I did this and what was so wonderful about it. It wasn’t that it tasted…
