Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - February 7. 2020

Hello, everyone – thanks for checking out the Feb. 7 edition of Nellis-Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! Here’s a question for our service members: how many of you remember the anticipation and/ or anxiety that accompanied you (welcome or not) on your journey through basic training? Our front page feature this week provides some perspective on that experience, as well as a look at a program designed to assist young recruits as they transition from civilian to Air Force life. The Development and Training Flight “gives the members an opportunity to better prepare themselves with not only BMT, but being a functioning member in today’s operational Air Force,” says flight chief and technical sergeant Sabrina Yeghiazarian. Click on the link below to read this and other stories in your digital copy of Desert Lightning News, viewable on your desktop or mobile device.
