Few Airmen will ever have a more dangerous duty. Few Airmen see the front lines of war. But a handful of Airmen from the 90th Logistics Readiness Squadron Vehicle Operations unit will soon do just that when they deploy to Iraq to run convoys. The troops are currently at the Basic Combat Convoy Course at Camp Anderson, Texas. There they will train

THULE AB, Greenland - Greg Lambert, 821st Security Forces squadron contractor, lines up a putt during the 20th Annual Mount Dundas Open, the northernmost golf tournament in the world, here Sunday. More than three dozen participants climbed 800 feet of shale rock to reach the nine-hole par three course, which overlooks the base, the polar icecap and iceberg-filled North Star Bay. The final 75 feet of the hike up Mount Dundas features a rope climb up a shear rock face, making it necessary to transport the golf clubs and other equipment by helicopter. (Photos by 1st Lt.

Because not every Vietnam veteran can travel to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., a group of Vietnam veteran volunteers built a replica that could be moved around the country as a traveling display, and other organizations quickly followed suit.

SCHRIEVER AFB, Colo. – Although interviews with Air Force Office of Special Investigations agents can be stressful for subjects, an agent's objective is not to get anyone into or out of trouble. Rather, an agent's aim is simply to find the unbiased truth.
Air Force Office of Special Investigations: The truth is out there …
Editor's Note: Some agents', trainees' and candidates' names have been fabricated to protect their identity. Open the door marked "OSI Waiting." Go in, pick up the phone receiver by a two-inch-thick glass reception window and wait for someone to answer. "May I help you?" says a quiet voice. "Yes, I have an appointment with Special Agent Cable."

PETERSON AFB, Colo. – Senior Master Sgt. Ty Foster practices what he preaches when it comes to motorcycles and safety gear.  


 
Helmet wear: Rider's choice? Not in my Air Force!
After more than 26 years of motorcycle riding and 21-plus years of service, I've given up wearing my helmet. It's not that I don't see any value in it. I just happened to sell my bike. Had you for a minute, didn't I? Well, some of our active-duty folks here seem to think they can just hang their helmet up because Colorado doesn't have a helmet law.
