  • Ready to Respond: Travis AFB enhances Northern California emergency response capabilities

    Everything is on fire!” shouted a 5-year-old girl from the backseat as her mother drove the family car across the Carquinez Bridge near Vallejo, California. Flames were visible on both sides of the bridge and smoke soon engulfed the car. Burning debris fell in front of the vehicle.
  • 60th LRS gets Travis AFB pumped up for innovation

    As a fuels distribution operator for Travis AFB’s 60th Logistics Readiness Squadron, Senior Airman Tanner O’Laughlin rarely spared a thought on the weather. His job—to ensure quality fuel makes its way into any of the numerous aircraft comprising Travis’ fleet—acted independent of it, and even if it didn’t, the base’s mission would compel him to carry out his work regardless.
  • Aircrew Flight Equipment keep pilots seeing, flying

    AFE flights have the important mission of keeping the tools used during missions operational and in good condition.
  • Discrimination: Not welcome here

  • Dental Airman takes inspiration from MLK to motivate self, squadron

    “Every time I think about it, it’s like pulling a scab off a sore.” Almost 51 years after hearing the fatal gunshot that ended his friend’s life, Jesse Jackson is still haunted by the loud crack that interrupted the cool calm of an April Memphis evening and subsequently took the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Bread-fed redemption: DFAC Airman uses food to bring peers together

    By outward appearances, the dining facility at Travis Air Force Base is run-of-the-mill. So ordinary, in fact, that you could easily be lulled into the idea that nothing special occurred there, but according to Senior Airman Oscar Callejas, 60th Force Support Squadron food service shift worker, you’d be wrong to think so.
  • 60th MXS Airman uses Mr. USA title to inspire others

    If you have biceps the size of grapefruits, you’re going to want to find a good tailor. So was the case for Master Sgt. Shane Stewart, 60th Maintenance Squadron production superintendent. As the reigning champion of the Mr. USA light heavyweight division, Stewart has to buy his uniforms four sizes too big to fit his hulking frame.
  • Travis family bonds over fitness competition

    It’s hot. In the middle of a summer that came far too early and that has a history of staying far too late, Travis Air Force Base, California, is hot. Inside the base’s fitness center, the warm, fluorescent atmosphere is heated to a stifling degree by the straining and frantic energies of those who are working out.
  • BEEliners enable AE mission

    It’s a Sunday morning on Travis Air Force Base, California, and a flightline normally buzzing with activity is unusually void of the sounds one would expect from the busiest military air terminal in the United States.
  • Travis Airman moves from Juárez, pursues opportunity in US

    Ask Airman 1st Class Adrián Gómez where his home is and you might get two answers. Gómez moved from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, to El Paso, Texas, when he was 15, joining the U.S. Air Force at 20. In the time he’s been in the service, his dedication has positioned him as a vital member of both his base’s mission and, on a larger scale, the immigrant population who have volunteered to take up the title of “Airman."
