Senior Airman Shelby Horn poses for a portrait with her daughter Sadie Three pounds, 11 ounces of resiliency
In 2016 my husband and I found out I was pregnant with our second child and we were ecstatic. We had just bought our first home and the age gap between our first and second child would be three years, our "ideal" age gap. It was another girl, which is exactly what we were hoping for. We decided to name her Sadie Jean, after my husband's grandma. We were so excited for her to complete our family. We anxiously awaited her arrival, which was estimated as December 29, 2016.

Senior Airman Samantha Salopek poses for a photo with her husband, Matthew Swartsfager. Salopek married Swartsfager in November 2010 at the age of 19 and recently shared some challenges of a military marriage. (Courtesy Photo) A modern military marriage
Six years and four months ago I married my husband. I was 19 years old and completely ignorant to the commitment I just made. Dual military marriages make up just over 11 percent of the Air Force population and like many dual couples, we were stationed apart. Less than a year after requesting join spouse orders, he was assigned 16 miles from me.

Default Air Force Logo Balancing work, life strengthens identity
The health benefits of maintaining a balance between our career identity and our "true self," the one typified by the activities we engage in outside of work, has led to special attention on finding the happy medium.

Default Air Force Logo Asking for help is sign of strength not weakness
Per John Heywood, an English author and playwright in the early 16th century; "If you will call troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be."

Maintaining your physical, mental, social and spiritual fitness is vital to being the best Airman you can be. Ask you supervisor or contact the community support coordinator at your base for more information on building and maintaining resilience. (U.S. Air Force graphic/Senior Airman Brandon Sabin) I love inflation!
We sports balls have it pretty rough. My cousins and I may have different functions, but we all, without exception, have to put up with an awful lot of abuse ... and I won't say from whom (cough, humans, cough, cough). How would you like it if you existed so people could use you, toss you around, kick you in dirt and hit you with clubs, racquets and bats? Then, to top it all off, they yell at us when they screw up!

That secret is one that took me nearly a year to even reveal to my mother and I have yet to reveal to the majority of my family or friends. The Airmen I serve alongside everyday have no idea that I'm a victim of sexual assault, until now.
