Starting Monday, I will attempt to reach out a little more through a weekly AFN morning show (radio station 1590 AM) bright and early at 7:30 a.m. This is another opportunity for us to connect on the issues and concerns that are important to you. I will attempt to answer any and all questions on-the-spot or get back to you with a prompt response after the show.

You can also catch my Wingman, Col. Suminsby, 39th Air Base Wing vice commander, every Thursday at 7:30 a.m.

Take advantage of these opportunities to give and receive information that will help increase the quality of life of everyone on base.

Stay fit year-round
Physical fitness is a way of life and should be incorporated in your every-day routines year round. Waiting until the last minute to cram in as many push-ups as you can before your PT test misses the intent of improving your overall physical wellness.

More and more people are deploying from Incirlik every day, and being physically fit and prepared for these deployments will only benefit you in the long wrong. Utilize FitLinxx to help track your progress.

Take care of yourself so you are ready whenever the mission calls upon you.

It is critical you understand force protection is everyone's responsibility. We all play a critical roll in safeguarding each other. Pay close attention to the travel advisories in the AT/FPD on the Source, on the Commander's Channel and AFN. They may put a damper on your weekend plans, but they are published as a precaution to keep you safe.

When you are out and about, immediately report any suspicious activity to the law enforcement desk at 6-3200. Incirlik Force Protection - practice it and live!
