Two of Utah's own wounded Airmen recently went on a weeklong fishing trip in Alaska as a token of appreciation for their service. As part of the Department of Defense's Wounded Warrior program, 14 members of each military branch were sent to a remote Alaskan fishing lodge for a week on flights purchased and contributed by the Pentagon Federal Credit Union. Sally and Jeff Appel own the lodge and donated the nearly $5,000 per person trip to the group.
As a once-active duty then Reservist Airman and now Hill civilian, Matt Kimber, didn’t think the mandatory CPR classes he took every year during Self Aid Buddy Care would ever come in handy. And then April 1 came along.
Kimber’s dad, DelRoy, went into cardiac arrest halfway to the doctor’s office for what DelRoy thought was the worst indigestion he had ever felt. If Matt hadn’t been there to immediately begin CPR, his dad would not have survived, according to the doctors.
Last Friday, Hill's surrounding community joined forces to say "Thanks" to U.S. service men and women and their families. The Top of Utah Military Affairs Committee held their 10th annual Salute to our Nation's Defenders Picnic on base at Centennial Park.
The Davis Arts Council is saying “Thank you” to the men and women at Hill Air Force Base on Aug. 11, offering two-for-one tickets to see country singer Darryl Worley at the Ed Kenley Centennial Amphitheater in Layton Commons Park.
Worley has produced 17 chart topping hits over a span of five albums, including “I Miss My Friend,” “Awful, Beautiful Life,” and “Have You Forgotten?”

Edna Maggard has Stage IV lung cancer. And like most cancer patients, she has lost her hair amid harsh radiation and chemotherapy treatments.
"The first time coming to work after I shaved my head was the roughest day of my whole life," said Maggard, a management assistant in the Ogden Air Logistics Center Combat and Missions Support Branch.
But only a few patients are lucky enough to have co-workers who are willing to shave their heads along with her.
The first up to the cutting chair of Maggard's eight co-workers in the branch was Sara Drake.
The Ogden Pioneer Days Rodeo is honoring our service members with a night dedicated to retired and active duty military members. In addition, an Airman from Hill will be recognized every night at the rodeo. Patriot Night will take place July 21 and all regular rodeo events will begin at 7:30 p.m. each night.
In the selection process, 13 rodeo queen contestants each picked a military member -- some in the Army Reserve units and some from Hill.
Master Sgt. Steven Hallenbeck, 775th Civil Engineer Squadron, an EOD squadron at Hill, is one Airman being honored.
