Hurricane Maria Airman shares story of family, service in wake of natural disasters
Growing up in Puerto Rico five miles from Roosevelt Roads, one Airman from Travis Air Force Base, California knows all too well the dangers due to the location of the island. “Since I was a child, my family would always stock pile food and water in preparation for the hurricane season,” said Capt. Christian Ocasio, 821st Contingency Response Support Squadron civil engineering officer. “There would always be a powerful storm heading straight toward us, but would change directions at the last minute.” That’s exactly what Hurricane Irma did after devastating the U.S. Virgin Islands. In the wake of Hurricane Irma, Ocasio and his team were sent to the Virgin Islands to perform an airfield assessment of airports in St. Thomas and St. Croix.

It can start with a simple conversation. “How are you?” “Yeah, I bet you see some crazy stuff at your job.” “That must have been really hard for you to process.” What at first seems like a run-of-the-mill conversation, stemming from a friendly visit, is more than meets the eye. It is a check-in. It is non-invasive, and it is from a friendly face that is just there to learn more about what Airmen do, and ask how they were. It’s the art of human engagement, and it is practiced by the 386th Expeditionary Medical Group mental health staff.

Default Air Force Logo Air Force uses lasers to preserve space history
Cape Canaveral's Launch Complex 14 is best known as the launch site for NASA's "Friendship 7," the flight that brought John Glenn fame as the first American to orbit the Earth in 1962. Now, more than 50 years later, the complex and other National Historic Landmarks are rapidly falling into decay. Challenged by limited funding for major preservation projects, the Air Force has turned to cutting-edge technology to document and preserve Cape Canaveral Air Force Station's historic launch structures, before it's too late.

A newly-hatched loggerhead sea turtle crawls to the water after being released by 325th Civil Engineering Squadron Natural Resources surveyors Aug. 23, 2013 at Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla.. Natural Resources monitors and protects the sea turtles that come to Tyndall AFB’s beaches to nest. They also compile data for Florida’s monitoring system on these nests including: where the nests are located, what species of turtles laid the nest and how many successfully hatched out of the nest.
