As they arose from the ground still covered in sand, a cloud of dust followed the team during their final dash to transport their litter to an ambulance. A loud roar of cheering erupted as the team completed their final challenge of the Titan Medic Games.

  • A squadron stacked with love

    The first 15 minutes of our time in Izmir was a blur. Our host nation advisor eagerly walked, or should we say sprinted, us through the city trying to share everything his home had to offer. As we took a sharp left down another colorful market-filled street bustling with women and men conducting business, running errands and gathering for lunch, children lined a three-storied balcony cheering boisterously to something starting in the courtyard. As we slowed our roll, our HNA looked at us inquisitively, as if to say, isn’t this normal? In that moment though, the roaring hustle of the city seemed to pause with us as we waited to see what could possibly have everyone’s admiration and attention – a potato sack race of all things.

  • The 728th AMS: Solutions, execution, evolution

    “It’s always been done this way.” This is a phrase that’s been said at almost every job around the world. It is a phrase that time and time again has halted the possibility of increased initiative, safety, time management and more.

Though the environment has changed throughout the years, from doodling notebook sketches to drawing on canteens, they all symbolize one thing: an Airman’s love for creating new things.
