  • Only professionals should install systems furniture

    Configuring an office space here can be a challenge. One effective way is to use systems furniture [often mistakenly called modular furniture]. Systems furniture allows efficient use of space while providing people workstations that can be interchanged amongst different cubicles and work spaces. However, there are inherent problems when the proper
  • Join the mission, move

    As National High Blood Pressure Education Month comes to an end, people are encouraged to remember this year’s theme, “Prevent and Control High Blood Pressure: Mission Possible.” It’s easy to join the mission: just ask your doctor what your blood pressure numbers are, what they mean, and what you need to do to prevent or control this “silent
  • Local girl spends day as a KC-10 pilot

    It was a foggy day in San Francisco when a 10-year-old girl flew a KC-10 under the Golden Gate Bridge. Katie Powell, daughter of Senior Master Sgt.

  • BASH program uses teamwork to protect Travis jets from bird strike damages

    Bird strikes are a major concern for not only Air Force bases, but any installation with aircraft. They cost the Air Force more than $53 million for fiscal 2004 and $21 million for 2005. Even though the total cost showed a decrease in 2005, the total number of bird strikes reported by aircrew and aircraft maintenance members continues to rise each
  • Travis Airmen make space in closets for another uniform

    Being in the Air Force can sometimes be a tricky thing. The idea of service before self has a profound meaning that weighs heavy on the minds of many Airmen. Some wonder if they will ever have the time to see some of their personal goals and dreams fulfilled while serving in the military. However, two Travis Airmen have realized they don’t have to
  • Travis cyclists pedal with the president

    When the person on the other end of the line told Capt. James Weinstein to choose four of his cycling club’s best riders to join the President of the United States for a ride, he thought it had to be a joke. “I was like, yeah right, who is this really?” he said. However, after the captain dialed a phone number the person gave him and was connected
  • TACAMO detachment stands at the ready

    Most people in the military are not fully aware of what it is like to be on full alert, but the people at the Navy VQ-3 detachment here know exactly what it’s like. “That alarm can go off at any time,” said Lt. Cmdr. Patrick Lehman, the officer in charge of the detachment. “It can go off while these guys are all sweaty at the gym or in the middle
  • Travis Talkers help people conquer pre-speech jitters

    On the top of many lists of fears, public speaking is listed as the No. 1 thing people fear. For some people, standing in front of an audience causes their heart to pound as if they just ran a marathon. They get sweaty palms and flip flops in their stomach. Anxiety is at an all-time high. Thus, a new organization has arrived on base to
  • Easing into exercise best bet for endurance

    Do you feel like you have to go to the gym every day? Do you feel like you gain weight after missing one workout? Do you get sick or injured a lot? Sometimes the feeling of having to work out is more harmful than not working out. In addition to the confusion about the exact specifications of how to train for a given event, an additional problem is
  • HAWC helps Airman recover from injuries

Paul Nagasawa, 60th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron, suffered from critical injuries when he was involved in a near fatal car accident in 1997. Sergeant Nagasawa recovered from all of his major injuries after one year of convalescent leave with the exception of a reconstructed right foot.
