  • A decade in waiting: Incirlik Airmen visit Adana school

    Surrounded by textured colorful walls, classical piano riffs signaling the class bell and the chatter of middle schoolers, eight Incirlik Airmen made their way across campus. Understanding that having a presence in the community is an essential aspect to nurturing alliances, Airmen spent a day with more than 1,000 students and faculty during a local school visit May 9, 2019, in Adana, Turkey. During the visit, they discussed their jobs and role in the Air Force, STEM opportunities and American culture.
  • Titan Medic Games sharpens SABC skills

    A team of four struggles to crawl forward, clawing nails through sand, with one hand weighed down by a litter covered in sandbags. While the sun continued to beam down on them, the shouts of their comrades echoed to guide them through a minefield. Inch by inch, they pushed under several white strings until they cleared the final string. 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. Members of the 728th Air Mobility Squadron are putting an end to that and crafting new ideas from some of their most creative members: junior Airmen and new NCOs. To encourage creativity and empower the squadron’s future leaders, leadership at the 728th AMS created a Solutions Group, which is comprised of members from across the squadron. The Solutions Group solves work-related issues they have either experienced or noticed and brainstorm ways to fix those problems.
  • Different strokes: Airman combines love for drawing, Air Force

    With one paint brush secured in her right hand and another tucked behind her ear she effortlessly applies bright-yellow paint to her newest masterpiece. When presented with the chance to combine her love for drawing with her love for her job, one Airman jumped at the opportunity to create a mural for her squadron’s heritage room. The loud music blaring over the speakers in the background fits today’s mood, but it doesn’t matter because drawing is always her happy place. 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.

  • Consent, intervene, support

    Can I kiss you? Those words echoed the room and all that came back was silence. This was the first question posed to the floor during a Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month event hosted here, which focused on educating Airmen on how to build positive relationships while encouraging constructive interactions among all people.

These days Engle is an emergency actions controller, but prior to joining he was controlling the unpredictable wildfires that plagued the west coast.
