  • Airman saves wingman

    “It felt like it was the end.” This was the only thought replaying in one Airman’s mind as he clinched his throat and gasped for air. After several futile attempts of trying to dislodge the object, he began losing hope. He realized the sad reality was that he wouldn’t be able to do this alone. With his airway closing, he mustered up the strength to stumble to a neighbor’s house and frantically press the doorbell.
  • Through wounded eyes

    I wasn't okay…I felt like no one cared. October 10, 2019, was easily one of the loneliest days of my life. While most of the base slept that brisk morning, I was having makeup applied to my face to rep-resent the “black eye” that would paint it for the rest of the day.

To alleviate this issue faced by Airmen at all levels, one first lieutenant created the Standard Template Optimization Program (STOP) which is a modernization of the Air Force Handbook 33-337 The Tongue and Quill, the primary reference used to standardize documents Air Force-wide.
