Posted March 27, 2015 by Master Sgt. CARMINA BEEDLE

I enlisted into the Air Force in February of 1997. However, I didn’t join the Air Force until March of 1999. No, I’m not talking about the Delayed Enlistment Program.

Fly Over: ‘Furious 7’ and ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’

Posted May 15, 2015 by Devante Williams and Grace Lee

In theaters: ‘Furious 7’ “It’s been a long day, without you my friend. And I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again.” You’ll be singing this song for days once you watch “Furious 7.” And it’s probably biased of me to say this, but “Furious 7” had one of the best tributes…

Fly Over: “The Bourne Legacy”, “Fifty Shades of Gray”

Posted August 24, 2012 by by Jayson Burns and Denise Wilhite

While not as numerous or historic as the Bond films, the Bourne series has become an example of how secret agent movies are done right.

One of the most vocal issues in American politics today is the gun control debate. This article does not seek to take sides in the debate, rather to temper the way in which Airmen choose to take part. Hopefully this will lead to more constructive debate tactics for this and future issues. What we write…
