Protection through detection saves lives

Posted September 19, 2014 by Master Sgt. RICHARD CRIM

KEESLER AIR FORCE BASE, Miss. — I remember the words on signs like it was yesterday. All of the business marquees outside of Tyndall Air Force Base, Florida, read “Where is Adam?” There were billboards offering rewards and advertisements in newspapers requesting information for the whereabouts of 4-year old Adam Finch.

Chaplain’s thoughts …

Posted October 31, 2014 by Chaplain (Maj.) Larry Fowler

Fly Over: ‘Prometheus’

Posted June 22, 2012 by by Macario Mora

“Prometheus” is a visually epic film that fails just as epically with its incoherent storyline. The plot is filled with more holes than craters on the surface of the moon.
