AF leaders remind force to be safe this summer

  • Published
With Memorial Day kicking off this year's Critical Days of Summer Safety campaign, Air Force senior leaders have asked Airmen to be as intense about safety as they are about accomplishing the mission.

Secretary of the Air Force Michael Donley, Air Force Chief of Staff Mark Welsh, and the Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Cody issued a memo to the force, May 20.

"Your dedication to Excellence in All We Do means doing everything -- from our mission to summer recreation activities -- the right way," the memo states. "By definition, doing things the right way means the safe way."

The theme of this year's campaign is 'Safe-n-Sound, All Year Round,' reinforcing leadership's message to Airmen everywhere.

"Although the critical days of summer conclude on September 3rd, this year's theme shows you are valued every day of the year," the three leaders said.

"Each of you has a remarkable story," the memo concludes. "As you participate in summer activities with your family and friends, don't let your story end with an unsafe choice. Enjoy the summer with the same dedication and enthusiasm you give to our mission and our core values. Make your story a great one, and stay Safe-n-Sound."
