  Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - August 2, 2019

They swarmed into the dining hall, intent on munching away on anything they could find…. No, we’re not talking about that OTHER swarm that has descended upon the Vegas valley this week (bleah!), but rather the hordes of hungry service members who descend upon the Crosswinds Dining Facility at Nellis during Red Flag exercises on base. With Red Flag 19-3 in full swing, the 926th Force Support Squadron food service staff are hard at work “slinging hash” in time-honored military fashion. The extra workload these airmen take on during training exercises is an example of the importance of teamwork in fulfilling our mission – everyone has an important part to play, and the work gets done with excellence. “Food for thought” this week (sorry – couldn’t pass that up!)
