  • Beale hosts post-blast training with FBI and local law enforcement

    The 9th Civil Engineer Squadron Explosive Ordnance Disposal flight hosted a training event with the FBI and several local law enforcement agencies May 5, 2021, at Beale Air Force Base, California. “The training was a very high level coverage of explosives, what they do and more importantly how we would cover a scene if a vehicle was detonated,” said Special Agent Lee Witkowski, FBI bomb technician team leader. “This includes how we would collect evidence, the things we need to think about on approach to the scene and how bomb technicians would work alongside CSI.”
  • 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.
  • Beale’s 9th MXOT streamlines A&P certification process

    Acquiring an A&P certification can be a lengthy process if done the traditional Air Force way. The 9th Maintenance Operations Training Flight (MXOT) instructors at Beale were able to find a more efficient way for experienced maintenance Airmen to obtain the certification.

  • Beale's K-9, EOD flights conduct collaborative training

    The missions found on Beale vary widely, from high altitude intelligence, to aerial refueling, and also to space detection and observance. It’s only through the cooperation amongst these missions, and Airmen, that they can continue upholding national security.
  • 9th CONS working hard before close-out

    As the fiscal year comes to an end, Airmen at the 9th Contracting Squadron (CONS) are diligently working to ensure that units at Beale Air Force Base have the commodities and services that they need before the fiscal year close out date.
  • “To quote Dora the explorer ‘I’m the map’”

    Across the country the Department of Defense provided aid to communities in an effort to alleviate some of the strain on civilian healthcare facilities caused by COVID-19. Some examples of this are hospital ships USNS Comfort and USNS Mercy going to New York and Los Angeles respectively, and the Army Corps of Engineers creating alternative care facilities. Beale Air Force Base is no different. While not as visible as a hospital ship, the support that Tech. Sgt. Kevin Cuningham, 9th Civil Engineer Squadron (CES) noncommissioned officer in charge of Execution Support, provides to the fight against COVID-19 is essential, and without it the mission would have nowhere to go.
