Desert Lightning News Digital Edition - March 6, 2020

Hello, fans and friends – thanks for checking out the March 6 edition of Nellis-Creech AFB Desert Lightning News! Here’s a mantra to live by – Be B.R.A.V.E.: Be Ready; Respect; Attitude; Value; Enthusiasm. Nellis’ 99th Medical Group credits these values as the foundation that helped them win the 2019 Air Force Hospital of the Year Award. “Our mantra of being B.R.A.V.E. really impacted the culture and permeated to the level of mission excellence that we achieved. Our team feels like they are a part of something

bigger than themselves,” said Col Alfred K. Flowers Jr., 99th MDG commander. “I could not be prouder of them and I’m just elated for the whole team.” 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.
