F. E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. (AFNS) -- Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force James Roy visited here March 2 and 3, the first of two planned visits to Air Force Global Strike Command bases.

"Here you man and guard our nation's most lethal weapons," he said. "Likewise, I see our Airmen as the Air Force's most important weapons. We must take care of them."

The two-day visit was an opportunity for Warren's Airmen and their families to engage with Chief Roy and his wife, Paula.

"The unique mission here at the 90th Missile Wing is an important mission of national security," he said. "It's a mission our allies look to us for security.

"These are the most lethal weapons that the United States has and we use them in a way that deters would-be aggressors from taking the next step," he added. "The Airmen here at Warren are professional in their deterrence; they are deliberate in what they do. They can see the mission, and they strive to do this mission in a way which motivates me as well."

"Thank you for being Airmen who not only our nation respects, but our allied nations respect as well," he said.

On March 2, Chief Roy met with newly inducted noncommissioned officers, members of Warren's newest Airmen Leadership School class and a First Term Airmen's Center class, providing servicemembers an opportunity to gain perspective on their Air Force careers and become stronger wingmen.

"It was an amazing opportunity to be able to have such a small audience with the chief," said Senior Airman Torri Ingalsbe, an ALS student. "He's an inspiration in any setting, but having the chance for one-on-one interaction was a unique experience."

"I charge every NCO and senior NCO to get to know your people," Chief Roy said. "Know your people, know their families and know when something might be wrong and how to help."

He shared his messages throughout his visit, including F. E. Warren AFB's National Prayer Luncheon on March 3, where he served as the guest speaker, talking about Airman resiliency.

"We share a common recognition, a willingness to believe," he said. "Prayer unites us and is an important part of spiritual fitness, one of the critical pillars of resiliency, which is so important to this mission."

Mrs. Roy also discussed the importance in taking care of each other.

"Make good choices," she said. "Use your moral compass to guide you, and build the resiliency to make a difference.

"Be aware of the three C's," Mrs. Roy added. "Communicate, be committed and be caring."

"Every life matters," Chief Roy said. "There's support, and there's people who care. Seek help if you or your wingman needs it."

Chief Roy also commented on the relationship the base and the adjacent Cheyenne community share, pointing out that not all communities in the country understand the military mission and the sense of family.

"We recently lost two Airmen and had two others wounded during a shooting (in Germany)," he said. "The community around this installation understands what this loss means and the effect it has on our service community. Some communities don't get a chance to witness this bond, and therefore don't understand it. They need to understand it, they need to understand our military is at war; our nation is at war.

"The Air Force is charting a path in building a sense of community," he said. "That sense of community is larger than just the fence line. It runs out into the neighborhoods and the businesses. It's a part of being in that community and making a difference, and that the community has a desire to give back to the military in return."
