The Green Knights Military Motorcycle Club (MMC) donated 20 $25 Base Commissary cards to the Airmen’s Attic recently.
Green Knights Chapter 67 donated the cards as a result of a Bowlathon it held recently at the Hill Bowling Center. “We filled all 20 lanes for a good three hours,” said Terry Kees, president of the local MMC.
He said club members get together for the love of the ride and the need for education and safety.

The transition to the new Qmatic system at the 75th Medical Group pharmacy hit a few bumps in its first week, but now customer wait-time has been reduced by 54 percent and the average is still falling, said Capt. Jason Bingham, 75th MDG pharmacist.
The 388th and 419th Maintenance Groups honored their top performers March 9 in Hangar 37. Nearly 45 awards were presented including individual and crew awards.

“We couldn’t do what we do without the support of the families,” the general said as he thanked the spouses and community leaders for their continued support.
“I am very proud of the Airmen that worked for me. They were brand new from tech school and they just did everything they could because they saw how hard I was working (in order) to help me out. I think they will be the next superstars,” said Senior Airman Brittany Hayden, 75th Medical Support Squadron.
Hayden, one of two Air Force-level winners recently announced in the 75th Medical Group, took honors as U.S. Air Force Public Health Airman of the Year.
“People think we just arrest people and give out tickets all the time and that’s not the case,” said Investigator Gage Franz. “We’re the front line defense. Without security forces protecting an installation, there is no installation. We’re in charge of protecting our perimeter along with all assets and personnel.”
Franz was recently selected as the Air Force Security Forces Staff Airman of the Year for FY 2012. He was deployed to a location in Southwest Asia for approximately five months and racked up quite a few achievements.
“With Pope Benedict the XVI resigning as pope, it is a historic moment in our church. It’s happened before but it was so long ago that this really is setting a whole new precedent. So it’s going to definitely have ramifications for the Catholic Church — it remains to be seen what they’ll be but I can only imagine it will make it easier for future popes, if they feel that they need to bow out because of health or advanced years. I think you can also look at it not only from an ecclesiological point of view, but from a spiritual point of view.
The Most Rev. John C. Wester, the Roman Catholic bishop of Salt Lake City, spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast on Feb. 14.
He changed his focus from that of “Prayer: A Loving Response from a Loving Father” to an emphasis of “Prayer: A Loving Response TO a Loving Father.”
The bishop pointed out an exchange he had with a little first-grader in the driveway of a family cabin in the Sierras. The little guy addressed the bishop, “Hi, mister.”
The bishop replied, in turn.
The boy said, “My name is Galvin. I am in the first-grade. Again.”
“We use (this) to detect bad stuff. If it doesn’t go off, then we know nothing is out there or at least what it is we are looking for. It will detect stuff that makes your skin melt off and (make) you have nightmares at night so this is a nightmare detector,” said Staff Sgt. Bond Aulik, 775th Civil Engineer Squadron, to students participating in a Starbase Academy tour as he held up a detector.
