Reserve launches new Wingman Toolkit website

Air Force Reserve Command

ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. — There’s a new Air Force Reserve Wingman Toolkit website.

The site has a new look and tools, but the same mission as the old Wingman Project website: to provide Citizen Airmen and their families with everything they need to be resilient wingmen.

“The Wingman Toolkit is your training center for being a more resilient wingman,” said Lt. Col. David Ubelhor, chief mental health consultant to the command surgeon, Air Force Reserve Command. “The newly designed website features loads of local, category-specific resources centered on the four pillars of Comprehensive Airman Fitness: physical, mental, social and spiritual.”

Also featured on the website is an interactive A.C.E. training guide, where Reservists can learn the suicide-intervention method to Ask, Care and Escort. In addition, there is a Pardo Push section on the site.

“We’ve chosen the Pardo Push to exemplify what it means to be a good wingman,” Ubelhor said. “We’re fortunate to have on our AFR team retired Air Force Col. Bob Pardo. In March of 1967 during a combat mission over the skies north of Hanoi, Vietnam, Col. Pardo accomplished an amazing feat of heroism to get his wingman to a safer place.

“As you’ll learn when you visit the Pardo Push section of the Toolkit, Col. Pardo has continued to be a wingman even after he retired from the military. That is because Pardo’s Push is not just about pilots and fighter jets. It’s about teamwork, initiative, not giving up no matter the odds and finding any way you can to help others and yourself get to safer and healthier places.”
Ubelhor said he is excited about the new Wingman Toolkit website and is eager to see it grow in the future.

“We are always looking for input from Citizen Airmen around the country and there’s a place on the Toolkit for Reservists and their family members to submit articles, recommendations, stories and ideas on being a good wingman.”

Ubehlor said, people who want to submit something can simply click on the “Add to the Toolkit” binder in the bottom right corner of the website.

The new website is accessible to all Airmen, as well as friends and families. Check it out today at http://AFRC.WingmanToolkit.org.
