There are so many great educational opportunities afforded to JBA members and their families. Check out this Fire Explorer Academy offered to our youth:
Welcome to JBA Col. Andrew M. Purath! Purath is the newest commander of the 11th Wing and Joint Base Andrews.
An Air Force veteran shares her story on PTSD hoping to help others endure this invisible wound.
Fourth of July is tomorrow and we all know what that means... fireworks! Have a great day and remember your firework safety.
The UH-1N Huey helicopters hosted at JBA's 1st Helicopter Squadron are slated to be replaced by new aircraft as early as 2020.
"The Air Force Reserve Command is expanding the Aviation Bonus Program to qualifying Air Reserve Technicians (ART) as part of an effort to increase rated-aircrew retention ... Eligible ARTs will receive a bonus of up to $18K, while AGRs will now receive up to $35K. Those interested have until Dec. 31 to apply."
June is LGBT Pride Month and JBA is hosting an awareness panel June 29 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the 113th Wing auditorium (Building 3252). Attendees will learn about resources available to LGBT service members and be invited to participate in an anonymous question-and-answer session. Free pizza will be provided for lunch.
The first KC-46A's, the Air Force's latest in aerial refueling aircraft, are set to roll out at McConnell Air Force Base this October.
Cadets with the Civil Air Patrol had the memorable experience of seeing a refueling in action on board a KC-135 today! We appreciate everyone who assisted in the flight. Joint Base Andrews / Air Mobility Command / Air Force Reserve
In this month's Warrior Spotlight we recognize Staff Sgt. Bianca Johnson, who plays a vital role in keeping our pilot's vision clear for take off.
Get your video recognized! The Air Force is hosting a contest for Airmen to get creative and submit their best recruiting video. Winner will get the chance to be flown out to Washington, D.C. and shadow a professional marketing crew.
The 459th hosted a Safety Day event for our flying and maintenance squadrons this UTA following a directive from the Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. David L. Goldfein to ensure the continued operational safety of our air systems. "We cannot afford to lose a single Airman or weapons system due to a mishap that could have been prevented,” said Goldfein. For more information, see the link in the comments section.
Love is in the air! We teamed up with the 113th Wing DC Air National Guard to host spouses from both units to fly on the KC-135 and witness refueling in action.
We would like to welcome Col. Douglas E. Gullion as our new Wing commander. Farewell to Col. David A. Owens Jr. who was a tremenous leader. We know we have been left in good hands and are looking forward to the many rewarding years to come.
