  • Let Services 'Wine 'N' Dine' you

    It was a Tuesday afternoon. I was sitting in my office and I was thinking of something to do that evening to unwind and temporarily forget that tomorrow would only be Wednesday or "Hump Day." While skimming through my monthly Services Magazine, I noticed "Wine 'n' Dine" and thought, "What could be better?" Despite the sad fact I lacked a date with

  • Story time: Separated families stay 'United Through Reading'

    Once upon a time there was an Airman who traveled all over the world to defend her great nation. Unfortunately, there were times when she couldn't see her young children for months. "How can I keep in touch and let them know I love them?" she asked herself.Well here in Mustang territory, the United Services Organization is giving Team Osan a way to
  • That's the ticket: COMM techs solve server troubles

    Rows and rows of computer servers lie hidden away in a windowless building here -- black monoliths of information. Every day this information is moved in, out and around, meaning someone has to make sure it moves smoothly. It's a big responsibility being the Poseidon of this sea of 0s and 1s, but the technicians of the 51st Communications Squadron
  • Act of kindness strengthens ties between ROK, U.S.

    Once a Mustang, always a Mustang! A former Airman and his family, members of the Mustang Stampede from 1998 to 2000, recently performed what some would describe as a random act of kindness, but their actions weren't random. What this family did was very deliberate and done with great purpose -- providing winter gloves, hats, mittens, scarves and
  • The dark dangers of the winter season

    Fall is my favorite season. The leaves are starting to change colors, temperatures are cooling off and the skies are often clear. But with these changes come longer periods of darkness. More hours of darkness create safety challenges for workers, school children, cyclists and joggers. All of us have noticed the sun rising later and setting earlier.
  • When did you last floss?

    When was the last time you flossed? How often do you floss? Can you demonstrate how you floss? How many times have you heard these questions asked by your dentist? The response to these questions may be eyes rolling, a short hesitation debating the correct answer, an automatic yes without even hearing the question, or a no with some lame excuse why
  • Doing cardio to lose weight

    Did you know that according to a study done in 2004, 46 percent of the Air Force is overweight and eight percent is obese? According to Mandy Baerman, Health and Wellness Center exercise physiologist, the number of obese Airmen has fallen since then, but the overweight numbers have stayed about the same. She said it's important for that number to
  • Mitigating the risk accociated with heaters

    We are rapidly approaching the winter season and the 51st Fighter Wing has begun a campaign in conjunction with 7th Air Force to place emphasis on the environmentally challenging portion of the year outside the "101 Critical Days of Summer." Not only is cold weather challenging, but the operations tempo is beginning to heat up as the days begin to
