BALAD AIR BASE, Iraq (AFPN) -- Colonels (Dr.) Elisha Powell and (Dr.) Jack Ingari operate on a Soldier from the 101st Airborne Division after an improvised explosive device attack injured him. Both are orthopedic surgeons with the 332nd Expeditionary Medical Group at the Air Force theater hospital which treats American and Iraqi forces, and Iraqi citizens.  (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Dallas Walker) Extraordinary care packed in ordinary tents
In a sea of tents and trailers on Balad Air Base in northern Iraq, shrapnel is being surgically removed from a limb, medics are racing to stop someone from bleeding to death and another life is being saved from wounds inflicted on the battlefield. It is that sea of tents which houses the Air Force theater hospital, where servicemembers and

ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam (AFPN) -- Santa and his helpers -- Senior Master Sgt. Peter Tetreault and Rose San Nicolas -- push carts full of holiday donations out of the commissary here. The donated food items will be used in this year's Operation Christmas Drop, a 53-year-old tradition. C-130 Hercules aircraft from Yokota Air Base, Japan, flew here today, load up the donated gifts and "deliver" them via parachute to remote Micronesian islands. Sergeant Tetreault is with the 36th Service Squadron and Mrs. San Nicolas is the commissary store manager. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Bennie J. Davis III) Airmen spread holiday spirit around the world
Although many Airmen around the world use the holidays as a time for leave, to visit family members, or feast with friends, there are still many who use it as a time to share -- share themselves. The Air Force mission does not stop because of the holidays, in fact, some of the missions are in support of the holiday season. For instance, Pacific

Default Air Force Logo Tyndall Airman makes All-Armed Forces basketball team twice
Making the Air Force Women's Basketball Team is difficult. Making the All-Armed Forces Women's Basketball Team is even more challenging. And making both teams twice? For Senior Airman Mariela Miles, it was reality. Airman Miles, a 5-foot 8-inch shooting guard from Missouri, helped lead the Air Force team to victory in the 2004 and 2005 seasons. She

SAVANNAH, Ga., (AFPN) -- Diane Hayes hands the phone to her son Kion so he can talk to his father Staff Sgt. Herbert Hayes, stationed at Kunsan Air Base, South Korea.  He calls every day to check on his family and talk to his wife and children.  Sergeant Hayes received emergency leave after his family was forced to evacuate Keesler Air Force Base, Miss., a day before Hurricane Katrina hit the gulf coast.  They, like 1,000 other Keesler families,  lost their base home to the storm. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Brian Ferguson)
After Hurricane Katrina, family thankful for heartfelt help
While many people wish for big-screen televisions, money and electronic games this holiday season, one Air Force family here would be content with sleeping in their own beds, in their own bedrooms, in their own home. When Hurricane Katrina ravaged Keesler Air Force Base, Miss., it displaced many Airmen, including the family of Staff Sgt. Herbert

KUNSAN AIR BASE, South Korea (AFPN) -- Lt. Col. William Ferro, 8th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron commander, right, reviews a technical order with Tech. Sgt. Rodolfo "Rudy" Flores. Sergeant Flores recently received his second masters degree. (U.S. Air Force photo by Senior Airman Joshua DeMotts) Technical sergeant has two master's degrees
Stay in a college classroom for 17 years? Tech. Sgt. Rudy Flores thinks it is a smart idea. After nearly two decades of college classes, the 8th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron security manager shows no signs of stopping his desire to learn. In July, the sergeant walked across the stage to accept his master’s degree in computer information systems

SOUTHWEST ASIA (AFPN) -- Maj. Alan Brown is scheduled to attend pilot re-qualification training. He lost his leg more than seven years ago during a hunting accident. (U.S. Air Force photo by Tech. Sgt. Mark Getsy)
Major overcomes adversity to fly again
Maj. Alan Brown grew up the way many boys in the West grow up, with hard work and a love for the outdoors. In 1994, he became a C-130 Hercules pilot with the Wyoming Air National Guard and was living the dream of many, flying whenever he could and spending the rest of his time hunting, fishing and helping out on his father’s farm. But that dream

PINEHURST, N.C. (AFPN) -- 1st Lt. Kristi Porter participates  in the Olympic district triathalon race here. Open water swimming is one of the three legs in the triathlon. Lieutenant Porter is with the 446th Logistics Readiness Flight at McChord Air Force Base, Wash. (U.S. Air Force photo by Capt. Drew Steadman) Triathlons are lieutenant’s passion
Completing a 26-mile marathon, as opposed to just succeeding at the 1.5 mile Air Force fitness evaluation run, can be a lofty goal. But not for Kristi Porter, a first lieutenant with the 446th Logistics Readiness Flight here. For her, competing in marathons -- like the Seattle Marathon she ran Nov. 27 -- is just a way to stay in shape. Since the

Default Air Force Logo Brothers meet at 25,000 feet
Families normally get together for holidays -- but at 25,000 feet? Not hardly. But two pilots from the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing found a way to accomplish a mission and have a family reunion at the same time. Capts. Greg Matthew Amig reunited in the skies over Southwest Asia, where Greg refueled his brother’s aircraft on Thanksgiving Day. The

Airman 1st Class Michael Zdenek is an ambassador. His job is not as high-profile as national ambassadors or United Nations representatives, but to the people he meets at wedding parties, retirement ceremonies and funerals, his job as a member of the High Frontier Honor Guard is just as important. Three weeks each month, Airman Zdenek works in the

MOODY AIR FORCE BASE, Ga. (AFPN) -- Ten combat rescue officer candidates test their endurance during a series of events including a six-mile formation run and a four-mile minimum road march with 40-pound rucksacks. These events ensure each candidate meets the stringent requirements of a CRO's duties. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Manuel Martinez) Evaluation tests mettle of future combat rescue officers
Their faces grimaced with strain, and a mixture of sweat and pool water dripped from them onto the ground as the eight men pounded out pushups. Even with the sun high overhead, the chill in the late-October air reminded them winter was coming to south Georgia. The Airmen -- whittled down from a field of 20 -- were testing their mettle to see if
