  • Risk vs reward

    As the weather improves, there’s no surprise that many of our Airmen who ride motorcycles have been out more. Therefore, it’s crucial to remember the importance of motorcycle safety while riding. In April 2021, two Airmen from Travis Air Force Base lost their lives because of a motorcycle accident. Both of these accidents were caused by the other drivers, not the motorcycle riders. Furthermore, the Department of the Air Force has experienced 15 motorcycle related deaths since March 1, 2020, making motorcycle training more valuable than ever.
  • Beale hosts post-blast training with FBI and local law enforcement

  • A day in the life of CMSAF, from one of Beale’s A1C’s eyes

    In my experience, when junior airmen are made to sit down to talk with senior leadership there’s a bit of grumbling about it and maybe even some nodding off. When the Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force (CMSAF) was here, that picture could not be further from the truth. When Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force JoAnne Bass spoke to a room full of Airmen, I saw them be more invested in what she was saying than the free pizza they were given for showing up, which was clearly evident when they lined up, 50 at a time, to take a selfie with her.
