“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.
