What are your plans for the holidays?


Maj. Lola Osawe

Job: Group Practice Manager
Unit: 452 AMDS
Hometown: Pasadena, Calif.
Hobbies: Music and painting

I will be spending time with my family and doing some local travel to some of the beautiful parks in the area. I will possibly go to the mountains as well. The holidays are a time to celebrate all the wonderful things our families do for us, and I’m very thankful for mine.

Sr. Airman Gerald Rebujio

Job: Medical Technician
Unit: 452 ASTS
Hometown: Yigo, Guam
Hobbies: Basketball, Soccer, Spear Fishing, Hiking and Barbecuing

I intend on spending all of my holiday time with family and friends. We are preparing for big feasts on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. We might make it to the mountains for some snowboarding and practice making snow angels. Also, I wish my mom was here, but I know she is watching from above.  I would like to wish everyone the best, during the holidays.

Sr. Airman Jemea Sherman

Job: Aircrew Flight Equipment Specialist
Unit: 452 OSS
Hometown: Los Angeles, Calif.
Hobbies: Shopping, Dancing and Traveling

For the upcoming holidays, I’m going to be spending it with my family. Nothing too fancy. My sisters and I will get up early to get a head start on the food. I will be doing most of the work since I’m the best cook. We’ll probably spend the day sitting around talking and catching up until it’s time to eat. Then after dinner, I’ll have to get ready for work and spend the rest of the evening there. I’m excited about all of the left-overs and hanging out with my twin sister, who I only get to see twice a year.

452 AMW lineage began in World War II England

(With the this year’s military ball theme, “A Legacy for the future: 452nd Bombardment Group,” and the ball only 11 weeks away, it seems appropriate to re-print an 11-part series tracing its lineage. The series was first run in the Beacon in 2007. Take this journey with us.) The 452nd Air Mobility Wing started as...
 
 

Social media guidance on political campaigns, elections

Reservists on active duty for 30 or more days may generally express their personal views on public issues or political candidates via social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter or personal blogs, much the same as they would be permitted to write a letter to the editor of a newspaper. If a social media site/post...
 

 

Go After the OC!M

“If the only reason you’re avoiding taking on a challenge is because the idea scares you, then that’s the reason to take it on.” That line comes from Steve Farber’s The Radical Leap, a great little book on leadership that follows the journey of a man who stands at the edge of his future but...
 
 

SAPR: More than an Air Force Acronym

As an Airman and a senior leader in the Air Force Reserve, I’ve seen firsthand the devastating impacts of sexual assault on an Air Force organization.

As a young child, you don’t think much if someone doesn’t show up when they’re supposed to because you have better, more important things to worry about; like bugs and dolls. They’re just another shape flashing around y...
