Tuesday marked the first of many hoped for multicultural days at the Defense Logistics Agency at Hill. DLA employees meandered around the building with "passports," going from culture to culture to nibble not only on bits of food, but also bits of knowledge.
The event held Oct. 4 kicked off just before 11 a.m. with Col. James Kinkade, the site commander for DLA Aviation in Ogden, cutting a carrot cake. Then, participants let their passports guide them as they wandered throughout the building, having their passports marked at every station.
Nearly 200 personnel from the 419th and 388th Fighter Wings departed Sept. 23 for a 180-day joint deployment to the Asia-Pacific region.

Hill's reservists are fulfilling key leadership roles for the first 60 days and will have operational oversight during that time.
The new Federal Women's Program manager has identified seven keys to bringing success to women: visualization, education, interpersonal skills, courage, attitude, support systems and tenacity. Linda Larsen, an Ogden Air Logistics Center trainer, will expand recruitment and outreach through monthly lunch and learns as the program follows this year's theme: "Your Life, Your Success."
Work can get pretty frustrating for us at times. Frustration leads to stress. This kind of stress will not only affect our health, but also how we interact with people. But if we are proactive, the stress that would have been created can largely be avoided. By thinking ahead, planning our work, and working our plan, we can reduce stress and be happier both at work and at home. There are certain critical elements that will help us in the completion of any job or task.
OGDEN -- Four Airmen from the 2nd Combat Camera Squadron (2nd CTCS) at Hill Air Force Base competed in this year's 5K Foam Fest at Fort Buenaventura Park in Ogden Sept. 24.
The two-day event, held by Round House Racing Sept. 23-24, was broken down into a series of staggered races, or heats. Each heat was far from a typical 5K run, as competitors went around, over, under and through a variety of obstacles ... and of course, lots of foam. Along the route were tire crawls, cargo nets, wooden logs, climbing walls, and even a "suds 'n slide."
