  • Certain Victory: A-10 pilots persevere through COVID-19

    The will to win has been an unmatched factor for one squadron since their early World War II days. Whether flying over the Himalayan mountains into the foothills of China in the 1940’s, or staying mission ready today as the Korean Peninsula’s premier close air support fighter squadron, the 25th Fighter Squadron ‘Assam Draggins’ carry on a legacy that epitomizes their Korean motto, ‘Pil Sung’ – Certain Victory. Now, the Sons of Pil Sung look to add another victory in the win column as they persevere amid the COVID-19 global pandemic. Although COVID-19 mitigation measures have impacted many things, it has not stopped the 25th FS from being ready to “Fight Tonight.”
  • In-Service recruiter helps authenticate dreams

    Deciding your next phase in life can be a difficult decision to make. Like driving in traffic, every Active-Duty military member will one day encounter a career fork in the road. You can either ‘cruise control’ on a familiar route by remaining in the Active-Duty lane, or merge to transition into the Air National Guard or Air Force Reserve path, the latter showing ‘road work ahead’ signs as the lane turns into rocky, unpaved asphalt. As the ‘contract term’ road ends, a commitment must be made – one that’s hard to detour from once passed. Luckily, one Airman acts as a GPS for transitioning Airmen as the sole in-service Air Force recruiter on the Korean Peninsula – who loves to help make people’s career dreams come true.

  • Osan Airmen typhoon ready

    Disasters come in many forms, shapes and sizes – and one in particular is a large, wrecking ball of severe rainstorms with wind speeds that exceed 74 miles per hour. This adverse weather condition is a tropical cyclone, or typhoon, and annually between June and October, typhoon season makes its waves in the Western North Pacific. For the Osan Air Base and the surrounding Korean Peninsula, being prepared to overcome typhoons while ensuring safety can reduce fear, anxiety, and losses that accompany the natural phenomenon.
