WASHINGTON -- Changes are coming to the Air Force and officials are working with the Department of Defense to prioritize current and future resources as part of a national priority to reduce spending.
In the spring of 2010 the Defense Department began a comprehensive effort to increase efficiencies, reduce overhead costs and eliminate redundant functions in order to improve the effectiveness of the DoD enterprise.
This effort focused on reprioritizing how DoD can use resources to more effectively support and sustain the total force and most importantly the war-fighter.
WEST HAVEN -- Other than bringing doughnuts for his classmates, Jett Longmore started the celebration of his 11th birthday Tuesday, Oct. 11 pretty routinely.
He never suspected that a birthday surprise waited for him at school.
After library time at Kanesville Elementary School, Jett's teacher sent the fifth-grader to the office to deliver papers. He returned to find the overhead projector on and ready to broadcast a message from the other side of the world.
One of the best lessons in leadership I've learned was from watching Harrison Ford. Not him specifically, but if you'll recall, one of the "Indiana Jones" movies was centered on the Crusades.
After watching that particular movie, I started to read a lot about medieval history and, in particular, the Crusades. The following is not a religious article. It is simply a historical account of a particularly effective motivational approach.

As many of you may be aware, OSHA issued citations to Hill Air Force Base as a result of their inspections January through July 2011. These findings identified several areas where we were falling short -- in both our daily operations and the use of engineering solutions to mitigate the hazardous environments in which some of you work. While we do have work ahead, we already began making progress toward solutions.
Children need strong, healthy teeth to chew their food, speak and to smile with confidence. When children's primary ("baby") teeth are lost too early, the surrounding teeth can drift into the empty space. This can lead to crowding of the permanent ("adult") teeth in addition to other problems including difficulty cleaning teeth properly and chewing food.
Protecting teeth from early tooth loss can help prevent these issues. Around the age of 6-10 months, the first primary teeth will start to erupt into the mouth. Once teeth erupt they become vulnerable to decay.
Just Between Friends events happen twice a year, in 16 states across the country, with new locations being added all the time. These events are held once in the spring to prepare for warm weather and again in the fall to get ready for cooler weather needs.
There's also the opportunity to volunteer at the sale so you can shop first. All volunteers and sellers get to shop early before the sale opens to the public. Military families also get in early, 6 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 20.
