It's no question that we still face many challenges when it comes to eliminating sexual crimes within our society, but that's no reason to stop trying.

As Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month comes to a close, it's important to continue to support the men and women who are breaking the cycle of silence.

BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION On this solemn day, we mourn the loss of Barbara Bush, an outstanding and memorable woman of character. As a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, military spouse, and former First Lady, Mrs. Bush was an advocate of the American family. Mrs. Bush lived a life that reminds us always to cherish our relationships with friends, family, and all acquaintances. In the spirit of the memory of Mrs. Bush, may we always remember to be kind to one another and to put the care of others first. As a mark of respect for the memory of Barbara Bush, I hereby order, by the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, on 21 April 2018. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same period at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

How can you be sure you have counterfeit money?
If it's a three-dollar bill, you can be sure.

Seriously though, fake bills are circulating in Anchorage, so they may be sneaking their way onto base. Most of the forged money has been $10, $20 and $50 dollar bills, but keep an eye on all bills you get.

Free aerial tour of Alaska, anyone?

Changing a tire should be easy in theory, but when it’s negative six degrees outside and pitch black, don’t be caught clueless with a flat.

Check out our third Adulting 101 video with A1C Rashaad Zimmerman of vehicle maintenance. He shows us the proper way to change a flat. If you haven’t changed a tire in a Goodyear, it’s always good to retread that information.
