'Today's Air Force' features deployments

  • Published
This week's edition of "Today's Air Force" focuses on Air Force deployments and ways to better prepare for them. The previous system was based on four-month deployments with some Airmen deploying earlier and longer than expected. The new Air and Space Expeditionary Force system splits the force into five tempo-based bands. Deployment schedule and length will vary depending on an Airman's career field.

And it is summer time, and this means the 101 Critical Days of Summer campaign. Learn how to stay safe during the hottest months of the year. 

Finally, see how the Air Force is leading the way in the search for alternative energy, investigating a more economical source of power for the future: synthetic fuel.

The 30-minute, weekly news show can be seen every day on The Pentagon Channel, American Forces Radio and Television Service stations around the world, and is available via podcast at http://www.af.mil/library/podcast.asp. The show also airs on more than 100 public cable-access stations within the United States. If you would like your local public access station to carry this program, send a request to AFNEWS.marketing@afnews.af.mil.
