Knights,

Shortly after I arrived last summer, I shared my vision for what it means to be disciplined, creative, and aggressive. And the MDG team sought clarification of “aggressive”, because, well they’re care givers.

Last month an Airman needed help in a big way and medical case manager Anna Halula-Busby made it happen. When she recognized he wasn’t getting the care he needed fast enough, she pressed on, did not take NO at face value, and involved her leadership. The result for the Airman was life-altering.
THIS is leadership.
THIS is leaning forward.
THIS is what I seek across the entire wing.
THIS is aggressive and we coined her for being awesome.

Remote assignments can end up being some of the best assignments, especially when you're with your bestie!

The way this family pulled out of an especially difficult time is inspirational. How they give back is even more so!

Congratulations to the March 21st Space Wing Command Chief Airman of the Month, A1C Scott Alexander from 21st Contracting Squadron. Scott is doing great things for the wing, base, Air Force and nation! Well done!

“We watch radio signals going up and down from space and make sure that the signals we’re sending are getting where they need to go."

Shooting stars! Otherwise known as meteors entering the atmosphere. Go outside tonight and make wish!

Weekend Tip: Make plans to get outside and catch the Lyrid meteors, which peak early Sunday morning! Known for their fast and bright meteors, the Lyrids have been observed for 2,700 years. They are best viewed before dawn and away from city lights. Lie flat on your back with your feet facing east and look up. Get more viewing tips: http://go.nasa.gov/2F58uOW

There were lots of great speeches and announcements at this year's Space Symposium, but the highlight for us was Lt. Vicino being highlighted during Gen. Raymond's speech.

#ICYMI Lt. Vicino received the Airman's Medal for saving three lives!

Sometimes you make a difference without expecting to do so. Walking with survivors from a concentration camp is one such time for this Airman.

#NeverForget

With the new Space Fence we'll be able to "paint the sky with energy."

Coming to us really soon and we can hardly wait!

Today we welcomed Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of the Air Force Heather Wilson as they arrived for 34th annual Space Symposium.

We often think of Thule AB as being super remote. Then comes along the reminder about our outpost in Shemya, Alaska.

COBRA DANE--the radar within eyeshot of Russia

The COBRA DANE radar, which sits at the Alaskan border, allows the United States to have eyes on all launches throughout the world. The radar, which belongs to Peterson AFB: 21st Space Wing, also detects and tracks foreign ballistic missiles helping to keep our nation safe. Headquarters NORAD and USNORTHCOM

The Today Show came to visit us at Thule AB! You know us for our radar mission, but were you aware of the NASA Operation IceBridge mission that operates from the far north?

Need some inspiration for your Wednesday? Check out the CSAF reading list. And like most libraries, there are more than just books to "check out". You can see his recommended TEDx talks, blogs, photography and more. Check it out!
