CLAIMS:
Claims for lost or damaged household goods, privately owned vehicles shipped at government expense and theft or vandalism of private property located on the installation may be filed online, 24-hours a day through the Air Force Claims Service Center at:https://claims.jag.af.mil/. Questions and/or assistance can be directed to our local claims assistant by calling 634-3029. Every other Tuesday, at the Right Start Briefing, the legal office provides useful instructions on how to process your claim.

Two important things to keep in mind for household goods claims: noting the damage on the DD Form 1840/1840R (pink forms) and turning in the DD Form 1840/1840R to the online claims service center within 70 days of delivery. First, it is important to note the damages or loss on the DD Form 1840 at the time of delivery and unpacking. If loss or damage is discovered at a later date, annotate the specified damage on the reverse side of the DD Form 1840 (DD Form 1840R) and submit the DD Form 1840 and 1840R to the online claims service center within 70 days from the date of delivery. Failure to note damage/loss or to deliver the forms within 70 days from the date of delivery may have adverse effects on your claim. Although claimants have two years from the date of delivery to file a claim for loss or damage, it is not recommended to wait until the statute of limitations are about to expire to file a claim.

The tax center, located in bldg. 2529, next to the contracting office, on the corner of B Street and Doolittle Road. The office provides free state and federal tax return preparation and filing. This service is normally offered from February through April 15, but it is expanded for returning deploying members and their families. For more information, contact the tax center at 634-5536.

“I’ve been working here for five years so I pretty much manage all three of our locations on base, although I’m typically at the med clinic. I ended up becoming a barista because my mom bought this about six years ago while I was playing football at Sacramento City College. She needed some help so I ended up here. Interacting with people is my favorite part of the job. Every couple of years I develop relationships with new customers and I really like that part. Everyone I deal with puts their lives on the line and I appreciate it. Everyone is respectful and I haven’t really met a bad person. I never used to drink coffee before working here, but I love it now. I love my job. I wake up every day with a smile, which gets a lot bigger after I’ve had my coffee.” Ryan Lewis, Missy’s Mochas barista Hometown: Sacramento, California Everybody has a story...we dare you to tell yours.

#MissionMonday Aerospace and operational physiological technicians from the 9th Physiological Support Squadron maintain and conduct aircrew chamber training for Airmen, other DoD personnel, NASA and supporting agencies stationed on the West Coast of the United States and areas in the Pacific. The training provides the aircrew the ability to experience flight at different altitudes, while learning first hand of decompression sickness, also called the bends. This opportunity gives them a real-world familiarization on how to properly wear an oxygen mask and to control airflow. The technicians instruct and evaluate members doing simple tasks while experiencing low oxygen levels. It requires about 10 technicians to conduct training in the altitude chamber. Inside, they have multiple observers, a lecturer (instructor), recorder, chamber operator, lock operator, crew chief and aerospace physiological officer.
