Religious Support Teams (RSTs)

The Air Force Chaplain Corps is a highly diversified, multicultural and multidenominational community focused on the free exercise of religion for Airmen, their families, and other authorized personnel.  Our ranks include officers, enlisted and civilian personnel working at the tactical, operational and strategic levels.


Religious Support Teams (RSTs) consist of a Chaplain and a Religious Affairs Airman who focus on caring for warriors and their families.


When you know someone in need of help, your referral to the Chaplain for a friend in need shows you care. The Religious Support Teams (RSTs) are assigned to Groups, with offices embedded in different locations throughout Beale AFB.  Although they are assigned to groups, you are welcome to seek whom you wish.

Yesterday members of Beale came together for a speed networking event as part of Women's Equality Day. The focus of the event was to foster small group conversations on a variety of topics, such as the inclusion of men and women across the armed forces, progress that has been made, and how we can improve in the future. 25th Air Force 9th RW Commander Gen Mike Holmes
If you need to talk to someone or elevate an issue, please don’t hesitate to reach out directly to us, 9th RW Commander, 9th RW Command Chief, or even our leadership at ACC. We may not always have the answer or be able to directly help, but we can find the people or organizations that will make sure you have what you need to be your best self. Service before self does not mean service instead of self. When you are at your best, we are all better for it. When you can’t get there yourself, we will be here to help carry the load.
#PortDawgs are a pivotal part of how Recce Town makes our mission happen.
Beale sheet metal Airmen have been restoring a vertical stabilizer to serve as a memorial to Lt. Col. Ira Eadie. Eadie passed away after a U-2 crash September 20, 2016. The vertical stabilizer was salvaged from the crash and after being refurbished it will be put on display in his honor. The official unveiling date and time has yet to be determined. 9th RW Commander
Staying mobile is key in today’s Air Force, good thing Recce Town has an exceptional Individual Deployment Readiness Center team keeping the mission going.
An amazing turnout in an amazing effort to help veterans. The Yuba Sutter Stand Down is still going on, stop by if you get a chance. Do you know all the benefits that veterans can receive?
Another #MissionMonday to kick off your week! The 9th Medical Group's Dental Flight works tirelessly to keep Recce Town's teeth sparkling clean. Clean teeth keep Airmen across the base healthy and fit to fight.
Beale Airmen have been members of the local community for a long time. Being part of the Yuba Sutter Stand Down really is veterans helping veterans both retired and active. The event will be held August 21-23 at the Cotton Rosser Pavilion in Marysville’s Riverfront Park. For more information visit: http://www.yubasutterveteransstanddown.org/
In response to the CSAF-directed Resilience Tactical Pause, Airmen from the 9th Reconnaissance Wing Staff Agency, alongside the Community Support Coordinator took time engaging each other to grow connections to one another, and to help prevent interpersonal and self-directed violence. In all the Air Force is taking a day to actively seek feedback on resiliency. If there is any feedback that you would like to submit regarding issues or information in your work environment, please send it to usaf.resilience@mail.mil #RTP #ResilienceTacticalPause
When brand new U-2 crew chiefs come to Beale they don't start with the 9th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. Instead they begin learning how to work on the U-2 at the 372nd Training Squadron Det. 21. The detachment then molds them into the great Recce crew chiefs you see everyday. To read more: https://bit.ly/31LB5Vp Air Education and Training Command
Sad to see a Col. Werner and family leave Recce Town. Good luck on your next adventures. Warm welcome to Col. Heather Fox, the new 9th Operations Group commander, and her family to Team Beale. ECHO VICTOR!
#ICYMI we recently passed the U-2s 64th anniversary of its first flight. Still going strong!

Can you hear me now?
The Airman and Family Readiness Center partnered with Operation Homefront to host this year's back to school brigade. The event helps offset the cost of school supplies for military families by providing them with learning essentials.
The Dragon Lady's roar can be heard far and wide. Thanks to the propulsion shop. The U-2 engine maintenance they do goes a long way in keeping Recce Town flying. To read more: https://bit.ly/2MhgV0Q
Since its beginning, Recce Town has been sending it. What have you done to #SendIt for the mission? #U2dragonlady
